Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants three players after Pogba sale

Paul Pogba: Mino Raiola says that Italy is the second home of Manchester United midfielder | Soccer news

Manchester United have also failed to secure a win in their last three Premier League outings following defeats by Liverpool FC and Burnley before a goalless stalemate with Wolves.

However, a former Manchester United hero Scholes is not convinced that Ighalo is the kind of proven finisher Solskjaer's side desperately needs. "He'll be involved with us and he will travel down with us", Solskjaer told a news conference.

"But if someone said to me at the start of the season, you'll score 10 goals for Manchester United in your first season, I would have taken it straight away". It might be that he'll have to come off the bench and get us a goal and then he just does whatever he's always done.

"We've kept in touch with him and of course we've done our own programme, he's done his".

Manchester United signing Odion Ighalo has been seen at Carrington for the first time today.

Solskjaer has clearly played down what was said and suggested it was all blown out of proportion.

"He's probably pinching himself at times at his favourite club at the age of 30, but he's earned that one".

But Solskjaer insisted it was necessary to strengthen the attack following Marcus Rashford's injury.

"It means she can feel me playing at Old Trafford, feel that dream we all prayed for, even though she is not here to see it. He is a very professional player, a good lad and will give something to the group".

Apart from Rashford, who has a stress fracture in his back, United will still be without Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay for the game in west London, which is crucial for both clubs in the pursuit of fourth place and qualification for next season's Champions League.

"Obviously, Kieran [McKenna, United's first-team coach] as well".

"The last time Chelsea beat United was in the 2018 FA Cup Final and United have won on their last couple of visits to Stamford Bridge - in the FA Cup last season and the League Cup earlier in the current campaign".

They may also have to sell Grealish in order to avoid falling foul of Financial Fair Play regulations.
