Euro Paper Talk: Solskjaer to move on trouble-maker as cheap star is eyed

Olivier Giroud, Gleison Bremer, Torino Serie A clash with AC Milan

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eyeing a cut-price January signing as he looks to remove a troublesome star at Manchester United, Tottenham have hope they could sign a top target in January, while Thursday’s Euro Paper Talk claims Leeds are pushing to sign a veteran defender from Real Madrid.

BAILLY ‘GONE’ AS SOLSKJAER SEEKS MAN UTD REPLACEMENT

Manchester United are reportedly looking to sign Torino centre-half Gleison Bremer in January, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to strengthen his options.

The Norwegian finds himself a man under serious pressure at Old Trafford amid claims he is three games from the sack. However, with United officials apparently not keen on Antonio Conte, there are currently no plans to show Solskjaer the door.

As such, Solskjaer continues to plan ahead for the January window, with reports in Italy claiming Bremer is a top target.

The 24-year-old has impressed in Serie A in recent seasons, having caught the eye of United scouts. And with just 18 months left on his deal, Calciomercato claims Torino could be forced to cash in.

Indeed, they state the Brazilian will reluctantly be sold for just £6.8m (€8m) in the winter window. AC Milan and Inter Milan are also reportedly considering moves.

But a move to Old Trafford looks likely with Bremer heading to Old Trafford as a would-be replacement for Eric Bailly.

The Ivorian is reportedly unhappy at Old Trafford and apparently called out Solskjaer following their recent loss at Leicester. Bailly reportedly confronted Solskjaer for selecting Harry Maguire in the game, despite the fact he was less than 100%.

Maguire endured a difficult afternoon at his former club as United shipped in four goals. And Bailly was reportedly so angry that he confronted Solskjaer in the dressing room after the game.

However, with Solskjaer expecting to stay, he will now look to move Bailly on in January. He signed a new deal over the summer, but will be allowed to depart with Solskjaer refusing to have his authority questioned again.
