The Red Devils manager was seen conversing with the Bournemouth protector after the 5-2 triumph for his side in their last match
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has denied he was arranging an exchange for Nathan Ake to join Manchester United after he was spotted visiting to the middle back after the 5-2 win at Old Trafford a week ago.
TV cameras caught the United administrator having a discussion with the Bournemouth safeguard at the last whistle, with some asserting he had said to the Dutchman that he required a left-footed focal protector.
In any case, Solskjaer has prevented saying anything from securing the sort, telling journalists in front of his side’s excursion to Aston Villa on Thursday: “I have seven focus backs, I don’t have a clue where that is originated from. We’re fine.”
Leicester’s draw with Arsenal on Tuesday night implies it is currently in United’s grasp to complete in the main four as they despite everything need to play Brendan Rodgers’ side on the last day of the period.
What’s more, Solskjaer accepts the Red Devils should win every one of their staying five games to ensure a rewarding Champions League spot.
“There are such a large number of games, in the event that we win each and every one we’re in the best four,” Solskjaer clarified. “We can’t depend on help from any other person, we need to do it without anyone else’s help and go into next season to put different difficulties to groups.”
The success against Bournemouth saw United arrive at 16 games unbeaten in all rivalries, giving the crew certainty going into the last not many long stretches of the period.
“As a footballer you realize you can’t simply select certainty from the ice chest, you must have it from consistently in preparing and results matter,” he said.
“The last 16 games unbeaten gives us certainty yet not even close to what a Manchester United group should walk towards. We center around the following one and out of nowhere we’re remained there with 16 – that is the thing that we’ve done.”
Also, in spite of Villa’s situation in the class Solskjaer knows the game against Dean Smith’s side will be a test, particularly with United objective Jack Grealish being a danger.
“I think the last game they caused us a few issues, Grealish off the left and [Anwar] El Ghazi on the right,” the Norwegian said.
“Grealish scored a phenomenal objective, there’s been loads said about him and we should know about him. On the off chance that he’s off the left, center or right, he pulls in players to him yet there’s not only one player in that Villa group, there are a great deal of them.”
