Pep Guardiola says Manchester United are starting to play the way Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants them to as he prepares for a blockbuster League Cup semi-final between the two sides. He's a lively bubbly character but I don't think you see as much social media from Jesse as you used to. When you get highs like that I'm sure they will look back on it and that's the Man United we want to see, but we can improve on that one.
He added: "This modern-day crop are going onto big things, I think that's quite evident in how they're playing".
"Another good player that we're being linked with", said Solskjaer when asked about United's rumoured pursuit of Jimenez.
"They have raised the bar so much that it is something to aim for".
And with City or United now guaranteed to be in this year's LC final, there is a good chance that Manchester's dominance over the competition can continue for another year.
"We conceded a few counter-attacks in the beginning and in just two or three seconds they were in the box, so they have incredible pace and talent to do that".
The onset of the January 2020 transfer window has seen the transfer story brought back to life, Manchester United now reported to be even more keen to pay the £50m, especially with Scott McTominay now out injured.
"It's not easy to handle a team at a big, big club.always demanding to win competitions and every manager needs time".
"The game we lost here in the league we played one of the best first halves", said the Spaniard.
United's hectic fixture list has been compounded by an FA Cup third-round replay, with the Red Devils drawing 0-0 at Wolves on Saturday - failing to muster a single shot on target throughout the match.
Manchester United fans would be right to be confused over whether their club is after Wolves star Raul Jimenez or not after conflicting reports emerged.
Solskjaer told BT Sport he was unsure if Maguire would be fit for the game at Old Trafford.
