Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he's unsure how Covid-19 will affect transfers later this summer.

New signings are expected at Old Trafford in the window, with England winger Jadon Sancho thought to be one of their targets.

Solskjaer admits he doesn't know how the pandemic will impact his spending plans.

"I think the pandemic has hit everyone really hard," the United boss said ahead of their trip to Norwich in the FA Cup quarter-finals this evening.

"I still think we need to wait and see how things are panning out to know the real effects of the pandemic, to know what kind of financial state we are in.

"You see some teams invest, some teams don't. We'll have to take a big look at things ourselves to see how hard we've been hit. I know the club has announced a few numbers before.

"It's not for me to say here now we are going to have X amount because I don't really know. I don't really know how hard we have been hit. We are a financially strong club, but we are also probably being hit more than anybody else.

"Let's see how quickly we can get our fans back into the stadium and of course the league position is going to be important for us this season. If we can get a trophy, the FA Cup or the Europa League.

"The Europa League will also qualify us for the Champions League, there's still a lot of uncertainty and these three or four months, every businessman in the world, every footballer in the world, I think everyone is still unsure what the effect will be."
