Cape Town - Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says playing Champions League football is not pivotal to signing top players this summer.
The Norwegian has worked wonders since his arrival at Old Trafford and Saturday's win over Watford has seen United make a return to the top four, while they are also in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Solskjaer knows the value of playing in Europe's premier competition next season but feels United would still be able to attract top players if they were to miss out.
“I've answered that question quite a few times, Manchester United and our history and traditions and our potential will always be interesting for players but the better you do, the better results you get, and players will like to come,” he told reporters.
“Champions League next year would be fantastic. When we came in three months ago we were 11 points behind. Now we're in that position, we've just got to go into next seven games with same attitude, let's go for it see how it takes us.
“Let's just keep carrying on, don't change your approach on how to attack games, sometimes you get more of the ball, sometimes you have to defend well.”
The Red Devils take on Wolves away from home in another vital Premier League clash on Tuesday.
Kick-off is at 21:00 (SA time).
