Addressing the Bale rumours ahead of Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final clash at Wolves, Solskjaer told reporters: "I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players because they're property of other clubs".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is convinced that Manchester United have enough quality to win the Champions League, but says they may need luck on their side if they are to lift the trophy for a fourth time. "If you want to win the Champions League, you must beat anyone".

The 46-year-old said: 'Any game you lose is a big anti-climax. I had until May to do whatever I could with the team, and playing style, mood, everything, has been going well.

Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett has repeatedly stated Bale's intention to remain at the Bernabeu, but United are one of just a handful of clubs with the wherewithal to acquire the forward.

"It's not easy - I don't know if it's easy either - when you're in the media or when you're a supporter, you can think short-term".

"So yes, we can go all the way but you've got to be lucky and good along the way".

United and Solskjaer have a month to wait before restarting their Champions League campaign when Lionel Messi and Barcelona visit Old Trafford on April 10.

'We've been on a good run now and if we get through to the semi-final of the FA Cup, I'll have a nice few days back home'. "There's so many variables and these games will be decided by margins". "To win trophies you've got to win at least one or two really tough games that are like defining moments", said the Treble victor.

Any move for Bale or another high-profile wide player would surely mark the end of Alexis Sanchez's forgettable spell with United.
