'Solskjaer's got to be a very good salesman!' - Cole reveals why Man Utd can't attract top stars like City & Liverpool


Jadon Sancho Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Andy Cole believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a tough job on his hands to try and persuade top quality players to sign for Manchester United as he warns his former club against panic buying.

While it is unlikely they will land three signings with a little over a week to go, there is hope at least one new addition can be brought in to boost Solskjaer’s side.

Cole, however, believes that the Norwegian's task is being made difficult by the success of the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool, with players seemingly against the idea of a move to Old Trafford during the club's rebuild.

He told Goal: "To try and close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City they are going to have to stop buying to improve themselves. At the moment they’re vying for the same type of players. It’s a double-edged sword.

"When Manchester United were dominating all the best players wanted to come to Man United and they wanted to come for a reason, because they had the opportunity of winning and that’s what it’s about.

"When you don’t have the opportunity to win you’re not going to say you will go to Man United if Liverpool or Man City are interested. Instead,you’re going to go to one of those clubs where you can win things.

"That’s the toughest sell for Ole at the moment, saying 'I think you should sign for Manchester United instead of Man City or Liverpool because we’re building for the next two to three years and then in the next two to three years we could win the league.' For me, if I’m a player I would be thinking 'have I got two or three years?'

"Or do I want to start winning things now and then in three years time if I’ve won it three times and then they come in for me then I could consider that I’ll move then. To convince players at the peak of their playing career to join a club and a project that will take two or three years, you’ve got to be a very good salesman."

Jadon Sancho remains Solskjaer’s priority target but with Dortmund standing firm on their stance that the England international is staying put - and there still being distance between the two clubs'valuation of the player - it is going to be difficult to land the winger this summer.

And Cole believes the task of landing the 20-year-old is being made all the more difficult by Sancho not pushing to leave the Bundesliga giants.

"Of course fresh faces change things but I look at where we’ve been over the past few years and we’ve got to a stage where we’re making signings that wouldn’t make us any better,"headded.

"Loads of players have been brought in but in the end the majority of players are no longer at the club , so you ask yourself the question 'are we buying the right players?' Because it’s not worked out for whatever reason.

"Sancho hasn’t made any fuss about trying to force a move to United. If he was doing that I would turn around and think this kid really fancies going.

"From the outside looking in it looks like he thinks 'yeah, I will get on with things at Dortmund, I’m not really fussed about it.'So does he really want to come? Previously when people have wanted to come, the player has said 'I want to go.' We’ve got two weeks left of the window and all this time up to now nothing has happened. He’s not trying to push it."
