Solskjaer to begin much-needed rebuilding job at United

Arsenal celebrate Pierre Emerick Aubameyang's goal against Watford

However, a quick first-half double from Lionel Messi killed the tie and Solskjaer's side were outclassed thereafter.

The Englishman is believed to be central to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans and so any stalls in contract negotiations is a real worry.

"You know that at this level you can not slip up and make mistakes and you have to take your chances when you get them".

A run in the Europa League might cost the club financially, but that is a more realistic level for where United are at the moment.

What went wrong for Man United against Barcelona in Champions League?

Solskjaer has now lost three of his five games since being appointed permanent boss at Old Trafford last month.

On Tuesday, Barca finished the job at home by cruising past the visitors 3-0 on the strength of two goals from Lionel Messi.

United is now on its worst run of results this season and some of Solskjaer's selections are being scrutinized - for example, left back Luke Shaw playing as a left-sided center back in the first leg against Barcelona and center back Victor Lindelof as a right back in the second leg.

Then, Hrsito Stoichkov and Romario destroyed United.

"Messi and Cristiano (Ronaldo) have been the best players in the world for the past decade", Solskjaer said.

The Catalans have superior players than United, a clearer philosophy and recruitment strategy.

The statistics from this season suggest his chief priority in the transfer market this summer should be rebuilding a defensive line that have conceded 60 goals in the 46 games they have played this season in all competitions.

Instead, Barca have a plan B, C, D and E. United are looking at appointing a sporting director; Barcelona have three in senior positions.

Having taken a 1-0 advantage from the first leg in Manchester, Barcelona took command in just 20 minutes in thanks to a brace from their captain, the second of which owed much to a howler from David de Gea.

"Chances in these games are massive and if we take them it's a different game".

"And we didn't capitalise on our great chance, but then they have their first two shots on target, that's two goals and game over".

After not managing a single shot on target at Old Trafford in the first leg, United looked a lot more risky going forward at the start.
