Ole Gunner Solskjaer has revealed he will still sign a new striker despite capturing Cavani for another year

Manchester United gaffer Ole Gunner Solskjaer has hinted the club may still sign a new striker in this summer’s transfer window.

The Red Devils earlier this month released a statement that Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani has signed a new one year contract extension with the club, however according to Solskjaer this will not prevent United from bringing in a new striker.

Just days after news broke that Tottenham striker Harry Kane is willing to depart from his boyhood club, Solskjaer has revealed he is not ruling out a potential striker singing in this summer.

In an interview with Sky Sports following United’s 1-1 draw with Fulham, Solskjear said: “We are looking to strengthen the squad of course. There are many, many, many things you have to consider when you put a squad together.

“I am not saying if Eddie [Cavani] stays that means someone else in a forward position won’t come in.”

Solskjear refused to response to talks of a possible Harry Kane signing

Even though he admitted the club is likely to bring in another forward to augment his squad, Solskjaer refused to fuel speculations linking Tottenham’s striker Harry Kane to United.

“I can’t talk about players at other teams. You know me well enough, I don’t think that’s very respectful of any team. There are loads of good players out there, I could say Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are interesting, but I can’t talk about them, you know that.”

Solskjear is looking forward to clinch his first ever trophy with Manchester United when they host Villarreal in the Europa League final.
