Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United could still complete “one or two” signings before the summer transfer window closes.

The transfer deadline for English clubs is August 8th, three days before United’s first match of the new Premier League season against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Man Utd’s summer transfer business so far: Five key things to know…

  • United have made two signings so far this summer.
  • Aaron Wan-Bissaka was brought in from Crystal Palace and Dan James arrived from Swansea City.
  • The Red Devils have reportedly had multiple bids for Leicester City’s Harry Maguire turned down.
  • They have also been heavily linked with Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
  • Solskjaer has suggested “one or two” more new players could arrive before August 8th.

A squad overhaul was expected at United after the disappointing end to last season, in which Solskjaer’s men failed to win any of their last five league games, losing three.

But the Red Devils have made just two new signings so far, bringing in Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace and Daniel James from Swansea City.

United are reportedly still interested in Leicester City’s Harry Maguire and Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes, and Solskjaer claims the club could make two more signings before the season begins.

“I can’t say much other than that we have a good squad now,” Solskjaer said. “The ones we have here are a good team.

“Then we always see alternatively whether we can get better. A lot has been written and we have certainly been linked to 150 players this summer.

“But one or two moves can happen, both in and out, it can still happen.”

Paul Pogba’s future remains uncertain, although talk of a move to either Real Madrid or Juventus has gone relatively quiet in recent days.

United face Kristiansund BK in their next pre-season friendly and having recorded a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in China.
