The Manchester United manager was disappointed that the club’s hierarchy failed to land both Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho, with the pair now teaming up at Borussia Dortmund instead.
Last-minute deals were completed for Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles, while youngsters Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo were also brought in.
Solskjaer has not publicly criticised the club for their summer business, he is frustrated by the failure to sign Haaland and Sancho, according to ESPN.
He believed he had struck a deal with Haaland regarding a January move to Old Trafford but executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward pulled the plug.
Woodward refused to sanction the deal due to lofty agent fees and the insistence of Haaland’s camp to insert a release clause into his contract.
Dortmund landed him for a mere £18million and agreed to a £68m release clause and he has already banged in 19 goals in the Bundesliga and Champions League since arriving in January.
Solskjaer is convinced that the deal made good financial sense, even with the strings attached, and that he would have had an impact on his team.
His frustrations with the pursuit of Sancho lie in the fact United had a clear run to sign him this summer.
However, when they return for him next summer, other European heavyweights are expected to be involved in the bidding war.
With his value unlikely to drop, Solskjaer is disappointed the deal didn’t get over the line.
He is still determined to land both players next summer, although there are question marks over whether he will still be in charge to see them arrive.
