Bale: Manchester United boss Solskjaer fails to rule out move

Bale: Manchester United boss Solskjaer fails to rule out move

"We have the Champions League to play and the FA Cup and Man United always wants to do the best that is possible".

"There's so many things that we need to think about". "Our possession wasn't bright enough and quick enough, so it's disappointing".

Second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota saw Wolves go through to the semi-finals with Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time goal not enough to save United at Molineux.

"With the Arsenal one, I'm very disappointed in the result 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".

"We had decent dominance with the ball in the first half but that doesn't help if you give the ball away and they can counter".

The Chile global has failed to settle in Manchester since his move from Arsenal and is now a fringe man in Solskjaer's first-team thoughts. "Against Arsenal we just couldn't score, and this was poor".

For the first time since the 2009 Champions League quarter-finals, four English clubs have place settings at the top table of European football. "That was the poorest performance since I got here".

In midfield, Nemanja Matic was back to the sluggish, negative form he displayed under Mourinho, while Paul Pogba - captain in the absence of Young - spent the entire game on the periphery.

United barely threatened Wolves keeper John Ruddy and, slowly but surely, their performance crumbled to nearly shambolic levels in the second half as Wolves were all over them and ran them ragged.

Success in either of those competitions would get United back on track, while they are also chasing down a top-four finish in the Premier League.
