Birmingham City wonderkid Jude Bellingham could have been Woodward’s top target, however, the 17-year-old is set to join Dortmund.
Bellingham snubbed a move to Old Trafford due to fears he wouldn’t get regular game time at United.
United boss Solskjaer has been vocal on the club’s transfer plans, insisting he will not by ‘rotten apples’.
The Red Devils chief wants his players to reflect his personality.
“I did feel that I was professional and did feel privileged to play for Manchester United,” Solskjaer said.
“I wouldn’t be able to look at myself if I didn’t know I’d given everything for my team-mates and my manager.
“That’s what I also now look for in players that we sign or we bring up from the youth team. You have to have a good personality and that you are professional because one rotten apple in the basket will make the others rotten.
