‘I don’t expect anyone to come in but obviously if the club have targeted and identified a few and I think they might fit here, I’ll give my thumbs up. But it’s not just my decision,’ said Solskjaer.
Manolas, 27, has a £30.5 million release clause on his contract that will come into effect by the end of the season. United are unwilling to take any risk of losing the player to rival club so have made unnamed amount for the player.
