Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned Manchester United’s rivals that their devastating attack is only going to get better - but insists he still wants to add to his forward line ahead of a transfer window where Jadon Sancho is his leading target.
Mason Greenwood further enhanced his reputation in the 5-2 win against Bournemouth with two goals.
But Solskjaer still wants to improve his attacking options, with a right-sided forward at the top of his wanted list.
Sancho remains his first choice option – despite United refusing to meet Borussia Dortmund’s £118million valuation.
“Every day and every game and every session is a chance to improve,” said the United manager. “We have to improve the ones we have here. I think we’ve seen improvement from Mason, Martial and Rashford and they will keep on improving, but we will never stand still.
“We are always on the lookout if anything is possible. You can’t think we have cracked it like Gary (Neville) mentioned last week. The emphasis is on improving the team all the time.”
Both Rashford and Martial have hit the 20-goal mark this season, while Greenwood is now on 15 in his debut campaign.
Solskjaer insists his front three are only showing signs of their full potential.
“They will improve and we’ve seen that all season,” he added. “They have improved a lot this season all three of them in different parts of their game, maturity.
“Marcus on course to his best season, Anthony the same, but they can still improve and they know there’s things I want them to improve and we will keep on working.
“[It is] Mason’s first season, we’ve always known there’s a special kid there.”
At 18, Greenwood is already earning comparisons with Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Michael Owen – but Solskjaer was reluctant to add to such talk.
“We will always come back to his finishing because the goals were exceptional, the timings of them were great for us,” he said. “But his general overall play is improving, his fitness is improving, his understanding of his position is improving more and more and I’m delighted with the goals. Right foot, left foot, now it’s about getting headers in.
“I have seen Wayne Rooney at the same age and Mason is a specialist finisher and specialist goal-scorer. He knows exactly what to do with the ball when he’s on the pitch. If he shoots, he will score. He is going to get better and his general play has improved.
“I don’t want to compare Mason to Wazza or Cristiano, I don’t think that’s fair.
“The boy will create his own career and he is doing it his own way and they’ve had fantastic careers, both of them, and I’m sure if Mason keeps on doing the right things, making good decisions, he will have a fantastic career as well.”
