Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he has received assurances from Manchester United’s American owners that they will send cash in the transfer market this summer. The club has come under fierce criticism in the past week by supporters, following United’s involvement in plans for a breakaway European Super League.
Co-chairman Joel Glazer was a key figure in the attempted power grab but has now been forced to face up to his actions.
He penned an open letter to supporters, explaining that United’s owners made a mistake and mess of the situation.
“We got it wrong, and we want to show that we can put things right,” he said.
“In seeking to create a more stable foundation for the game, we failed to show enough respect for its deep-rooted traditions – promotion, relegation, the pyramid – and for that we are sorry.”
United boss Solskjaer was forced to face up to the news that United were one of 12 founding members last Sunday when news broke during the club’s 2-1 win over Burnley.

He was seemingly unaware of United’s involvement but was forced to answer questions in the aftermath of the triumph over the Clarets.
Solskjaer remains clear that his relationship with the owners has not been strained by the events of the past few days and even admitted he’s received assurances that the Glazers will invest this summer.
The Norwegian said: “The market has changed after this year but I’m still very positive and hopeful that we can follow through on the plans we’re working on.
“I don’t think that will change at all, I think we’ll still have a good opportunity to do what we have planned to do.

“I think the owners of every club that signed up for this ESL proposal have got a job on their hands, of course they have. We’ve had an apology from Joel and I think that’s important.
“He’s told us how committed he is to helping us going forward. Unity and everyone coming together and working together for one common goal is the best way forward.
“I’ve had an open and good relationship with them and they’ve been very supportive of me, they’ve backed me.
“We have shown that in the players we’ve signed that were committed to improving and they’re committed to improving.
“There are other projects we work on which we don’t always broadcast. It’s all about improving the club, the infrastructure, the facilities and the squad. I am very confident they will remain committed.”
Reports have since emerged that the Glazer family would be ready to sell up at the right price.
They would be looking for around £4billion to move out of the club.
When asked by The Mirror if he was ready to sell up, Avram Glazer to the reporter in Florida: “No comment”.
