The Old Trafford icon believes that a manager who is asking more questions about his future needs more support in the summer window

Manchester United haven’t given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the support he needed during the summer transfer window, Paul Scholes says, and it’s “pretty clear” who the Norwegian was trying to catch.

The Red Devils saw a late spate of activity give Old Trafford a fresh new look.

Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles were caught on the deadline, while talented teen Facundo Pellistri was also acquired and a contract with Atalanta was signed for Amad Traore.

There was value in those deals, along with the one enforced for Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek, but United had hoped for more.

After the 2019-20 campaign ended on a positive note, the Red Devils were expected to be busy in the latest recruitment market. However, frustration should become the overriding emotion in Manchester.

A lengthy saga with Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho didn’t produce a final result, while calls for reinforcements fell on deaf ears in the middle of the half.

Scholes admits he was hoping for better and believes Solskjaer will feel the same when a lack of activity helps him face more uncomfortable questions about his future.

“I don’t think he’s the first to be unsupported,” said United legend Scholes

“A lot of money has been spent, but has it been spent on the first decisions these managers want? I’m not sure.

“In my opinion [Louis] van Gaal and [Jose] Mourinho especially groaned about this and it’s understandable when they don’t get the players they want.

“I think Ole was supported. I think Maguire at £ 80m is a lot of money [Bruno] Fernandes in January was an excellent signing and the form has been good, especially from Fernandes in January when you felt this team is on the right track. ”

Scholes added, “Towards the end of the season, it’s a lot easier to win games, it’s a lot easier to take a run when the pressure doesn’t really keep.

“Okay, you can talk about the pressure to get in the top four but that’s not the pressure United want, United want to win leagues.

“They felt that at the end of last season he would have had more support in the transfer market to get back to the next level, but he wasn’t given that.

“It’s pretty clear that the players he wanted didn’t come.”

United, who lost 6-1 to Tottenham in their last Premier League game, will be back in action on Saturday with a trip to Newcastle.
