"We'll need to wait and see how things are panning out to know the real effects of the pandemic, to know what sort of financial state we are in," Solskjaer said.
"You will see some teams invest and some teams don't. We’ll have to take a big look at things ourselves to see how hard we’ve been hit.
"It’s not for me to say we are going to have X amount because I don’t really know.
"We are a financially strong club, but we are also probably being hit more than anybody else."
