Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the club will always be looking for quality players to sign, but refused to confirm they are considering bringing Gareth Bale in the summer.
Bale has not had a great time at Madrid despite winning a La Liga title and multiple Champions League titles, and with the return of Zinedine Zidane as manager his game time could be reduced again.
The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the Welshman, but Solskjaer has refused to say anything about whether or not they are planning to get him in the next transfer window.
“I can’t really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players because they’re property of other clubs but we should look for quality players, definitely, and players who could improve us as a team,” Solskjaer said, according to Goal.
Manchester United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer underlined their need of quality players and are not drawn with a potential move for Gareth Bale.

“There’s so many factors you need to think about when you sign players. It’s easy when you’re in the media or when you’re a supporter, you can think short term. We’ve got to think about the longevity as well, who’s going to fit in personality-wise. So there’s so many things that we need to think about.”
United are currently fighting for a place in the top four to qualify for the Champions League next season, which would help them attract quality players like Bale, who would certainly not want to miss out on playing in Europe’s top club competition. It remains to be seen who they will end up buying in the summer transfer window.
