Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Manchester United similarities to 1998/99

The Red Devils - who finished second in the Premier League last term - have been in solid form since Solskjaer was brought in as the club's interim boss following the sacking of Jose Mourinho back in December.

"I think this is a very good test for the team", he added.

"So yes, we can go all the way but you've got to be lucky and good along the way". "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". "If you want to win the Champions League, you must beat anyone".

Following Friday's Champions League draw, Solskjaer insisted that the fans will rightly be excited to come up against the La Liga giants and has even claimed that his friends are teasing him that it's going to be Manchester United's year in Europe.

Any move for Bale or another high-profile wide player would surely mark the end of Alexis Sanchez's forgettable spell with United.

"There have been a couple of comments about "You used to wear the number 20" and blah blah blah, but I believe that you get what you deserve in life, in sports".

As rain poured down in Manchester on Saturday morning, the United players arrived at the club's training ground in Carrington ahead of departing for Wolves for their evening kick-off in the FA Cup.

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

"Any game you lose is a big anti-climax".

"We've shown against PSG that on any given day we can beat a top team, but then again there are so many variables and in these games things are decided by margins".
