Solskjaer claims that United have a rebuilding project on their hands following their defeat to Barcelona.

The Norweign’s good fortunes have begun to fade with the 13-time Premier League champions once again looking unconvincing.

Solskjaer admitted that United are well behind Barcelona and starting in the summer, the club will look to make new additions.

Solskjaer admitted:

“If we want to get back to Manchester United’s true level, true traditions, we have to challenge Barcelona.

“They were a couple of levels above over the two games.

“We have said all along that this isn’t going to change tonight.

“The next few years will be massive for us to get to the level of Barcelona.

“We have got good players and, at the moment, we really have done well to get to the quarters and to get in the challenge for the top four.

“We have got a rebuilding job but that starts with the coaches and the players and one or two additions to the squad will happen in the summer.”
