Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes transfer demand to Manchester United board

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged the Manchester United hierarchy to open their chequebook, amid the club’s transfer stalemate this summer.

The United boss has sent a firm message to Ed Woodward and the Glazer family when speaking about the need to improve his squad, on the eve of tonight’s Europa League semi-final versus Sevilla.

Solskjaer is a huge admirer of Jadon Sancho, who is United’s top summer priority, but the club have so far been reluctant to meet Borussia Dortmund’s asking price. United’s stance has prompted the German club to say Sancho is not for sale, but Solskjaer is eager to improve his squad with additions of the highest calibre.

“It’s a race. You can see teams building. We’re always looking at the squad and player logistics,” he said.

“It is definitely about quality – and it is going to cost money to get in players who are better than the ones we already have.

“We’re just working as normal and sticking to a plan. Qualifying for the Champions League brings us a harder schedule, but it also gives us more motivation to be in with the best and challenging. That will make these players better.

“Champions League makes us more sporting and financially attractive, so that’s another factor.”

Solskjaer is under no illusions that United have a long way to go if they’re to challenge Liverpool and Man City for the league title next season.

He has spent around £170million so far on Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes and has seen success in those signings.

“We still have a way to go to get to the level of the teams at the top of the Premier League,” he added, with United finishing third in the Premier League in 2019/20. “They are too far ahead of us.

Have your say on United’s transfers here:

“We are still growing, getting better of course, but we are not the finished article. Nowhere near.

“You need to plan ahead. It is not just about 11, 12, or 13 players. You have to have 19, 20, 21 or 22 that you really rely on because if you play every three days for a full year it’s going to be mentally and physically difficult.

“We are always working towards having a competitive squad and the challenge for us now is to take the next step.

“That means winning trophies and keep trying to close the gap to the top two teams.

“And we have also got to make sure that the teams who finished below us in the table stay behind us.”

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
