Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is predicting that the January transfer window will be quiet this time around.
Most teams are still struggling financially in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, which means that there is a lot less money available to spend on new players.
Where clubs may be forced to act is if they have a lathe number of injuries. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp launched a scathing verbal attack on the BT broadcaster about the scheduling of matches on Saturday after James Milner became the latest member of his squad to face a period ion the side-lines after the game with Brighton.
Solskjaer has indicated that he is happy with his squad and after the club’s latest financial figures showed a drop in income of almost 20% due to the health crisis, those expecting much activity at Old Trafford in the New Year on the transfer front are likely to be disappointed.
