Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has launched a new defence of the Glazer family.

The American owners are unpopular figures among fans. But, amid interest in Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland and Jules Kounde, the Norwegian has defended their corner.

"We've got a plan to become a very successful Man United team - and a team that top players want to play for," he said.

“It's down to us to keep improving and getting closer to the trophies.

“I can't say anything about individuals. But we've got the backing.

“The owners keep backing the club and myself and hopefully we can improve the team.

“We are getting better, but we need to do better than last year when we got to three semi-finals.

“The next stage is to get into finals and establish ourselves again as challengers in the league."

Solskjaer also insisted he was relaxed over his own future, with the Norwegian's contract due to expire in 2022.

“I talk to Ed all the time and I know we will keep on discussing the progress of the team," he said, referring to Ed Woodward.

“I've still got time left on my contract and my job is to keep doing my best for the club."
