Manchester United's news suggests that they will have a tranquil January transfer window, with more exits than entries.

The Red Devils coach

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

has said that he doesn't intend to buy big names in the winter. It has been evident that Bruno Fernandes' style could help push the club towards another league title. 

The Portugal international showed up at Old Trafford a year prior and had a significant impact in the squad, specially in the second half of the season to boost Man Utd into the

With the Red Devils presently sitting second in the

standings behind Liverpool on goal count, it was presumed that if the Norwegian buy another player of Bruno's kind, it could add additional quality and push United on to be champions. 

"The situation is different now from a year ago, so it's unlikely something is going to happen," Solskjaer said of the transfer window. "But you're right. Bruno came in and has had a great impact, made us a better team and he's become a better player as well. 

"If there was something out there that was nailed on I wouldn't say no but it's likely nothing is going to happen."

A positive outcome at Burnley's Turf Moor would deliver United to the top of the table in front of their decisive face-off against


at the end of the week; however, Solskjaer urges his players to stay focused and modest. While he is sure, he has the correct characters in the locker room to oversee expectations in front of an important few weeks.

"We need to get points against Burnley before anyone can say that you are top of the table, but that is a position that we have put ourselves in." the 47-year-old manager said.

"So I would like to think that we go into this game not thinking about where we will end up tomorrow night in the table, but where we can end up in the table in May. That's what matters. 

"You accumulate the points throughout the season, so if at one point you think, 'Ah we've made it now, we have cracked it,' and you relax, that is when it's going to hit you back.

"So we are very focused. We have some good characters in the team, the dressing room is louder, it's more vocal. We've got Nemanja Matic, who has won it a few times, Juan Mata, Edinson [Cavani], Brunocoming in. 

"I think he wants to feel part of a team that is going to be challenging for trophies."
