Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United are “working hard” in the transfer market and could make more signings before the window closes on October 5.
United bought Donny van de Beek from Ajax in a deal worth up to £39m, but the midfielder remains their only summer arrival despite efforts to sign £108m-rated Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
Throughout the summer, Solskjaer’s side have also been linked with high-profile moves for players such as Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon – who are both set to join Tottenham – and new Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
However, United boss Solskjaer has not given up on bringing in fresh faces before the window closes.
“We’re looking at a small pool of players who can add to the quality of our team and let’s see what we can do. The club’s working hard and I understand that they’re working hard,” he said.
“When we sit down and we discuss, sometimes it doesn’t happen as planned. Life isn’t a straight line here, sometimes things happen and I’ve always said it – I’m very happy to work with these players.
“There’s still a few weeks left of the transfer window, it might happen that we get someone in. I’ve worked with the club and they know what I feel the team and the squad needs and let’s see if we can add to what we have.”
