PSG will are already be missing superstar striker Neymar, sidelined until at least April with a foot injury.

“That is what we have to strive for. If we don’t dream and we don’t have that vision of where we are going, then we will just falter,” said Solskjaer.
“So for us, or me, I am only used to this club challenging for trophies so that is where I see us.”
Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez have failed to make a sustained impact despite big-money moves and have fallen behind a homegrown talent in Marcus Rashford in Solskjaer’s pecking order.
