Mike Phelan: 'Manchester United still want superstar signings'

Manchester United assistant coach Mike Phelan has insisted that the club still wants to sign superstars under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils switched their transfer policy last summer, opting for young British players in the form of Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire.

United have come in for criticism in recent years for signing big players who failed to make any tangible impact, such as Angel Di Maria and Alexis Sanchez.

Speaking on the subject of transfer policy, Phelan told the Evening Standard: "I think there has got to be a blend. I think Manchester United still do want superstars, but I think they still want to see them coming through and progressing and being part of something special.

"The fans are changing all the time. We've got senior fans, old age pensioners, young fans, but it's become far more global than it's ever been and I think all those people understand what Manchester United is all about otherwise they wouldn't support them.

"They don't just support them for the superstars, they support them because they can embrace the whole tradition of the football club."

United have been strongly linked with Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho as well as Red Bull Salzburg youngster Erling Braut Haaland ahead of the next transfer window.

Recent pressure on Solskjaer was somewhat relieved on Wednesday night following a convincing victory over Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur. body check tags ::
