Solskjaer insists Manchester United 'played well' in Arsenal defeat

"I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific names because they're property of other clubs", the United boss is quoted as saying by Sky Sports. "But we can't look at the performance and say we were s**t because we weren't, to be honest and blunt, we weren't, we played well".

There's so many factors you need to think about when you sign players.

"It's not easy - I don't know if it's easy either - when you're in the media or when you're a supporter, you can think short-term".

"So yes, we can go all the way but you've got to be lucky and good along the way".

Bale has been at Real Madrid since 2013 and is a four-time victor of the Champions League, although there is no chance of a fifth this term after bowing out to Ajax in the round of 16.

Any move for Bale or another high-profile wide player would surely mark the end of Alexis Sanchez's forgettable spell with United. "And the mood is good, the training attitude is good, so hopefully we can keep that run going".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that his Manchester United side can "go all the way" in the Champions League ahead of their quarter-final clash against Barcelona.

"With Cristiano still in it, I don't think it has opened up all that much", said Solskjaer.

"We regularly review our intelligence to make sure our officers are where they need to be, but you can help too". It's the worst feeling you can have.

"It's so odd, the Arsenal one, very disappointed in the result it hurts more than anything".

Solskjaer has acknowledged that his team benefited from a significant decision in their favour to beat PSG, with Marcus Rashford scoring the decisive goal from a penalty awarded for handball with the help of VAR in the dying minutes.
