Man Utd: Solskjaer gives transfer update ahead of Deadline Day
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been warned about frustrated players by Ryan Giggs as he tries to balance his best XI with keeping the majority of his players fit in his bloated squad. Several Red Devils stars have played less games than expected this season.
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has warned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to take caution with two players who have struggled for game time of late.
Solskjaer has had to contend with a bloated squad this season as he balances his best XI with keeping the majority of his players fit.
New signing Donny van de Beek has been one of those not handed as much game time as first expected.
The £37m summer signing from Ajax has featured predominantly off the bench, with Scott McTominay and Fred often preferred.

Meanwhile, Mason Greenwood’s fine form of late has starved Daniel James of opportunities in recent weeks.
And when asked about the pair’s lack of pitch time, Wales boss Giggs admitted that he knew they would be getting increasingly frustrated.
He told Stadium Astro: “Ole’s got to be careful because obviously he doesn’t want to get rid of players and all of a sudden he has a load of injuries, like Liverpool have had, then he’s got rid of players that if he would’ve kept he would’ve been in a lot better position.

“We’re in unknown territory where you don’t have a lot of time, pre-season, a lot of games squeezed into a short space of time.
“I would imagine Ole would just take the safe option and try and keep as many quality players in the club as he can.
“Yes it can be frustrating, I know that Dan (James) is frustrated, just like any other player that isn’t getting regular football.
“But when you’re at a big club like United you have to, when you get the chance, take it and the bench can contribute whether it be now or later in the season in the more important games.”
United will be looking to move top of the Premier League again when they take on Sheffield United at home on Wednesday evening.
Kick off from Old Trafford will be at the slightly later time of 8:15pm.
