Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is aiming for one or two additions to his Manchester United squad before this summer’s transfer window shuts.
United have already made two signings thus far: Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace and Daniel James from Swansea City.
Solskjaer wants more new arrivals so that his side will gain a step closer to finishing in the top four. Changes need to be made after coming sixth last term.
Harry Maguire is a prominent name doing to rounds for United’s centre-back signing, while Bruno Fernandes and Sean Longstaff continue to get linked as midfield acquisitions.
“We are quite calm,” Solskjaer told MUTV (quoted by The Independent), when asked to reflect on United’s summer business to date. “We have been good in the market so far and we’re still working on a case or two.”
“I have been in touch with Joel [Glazer], Ed [Woodward] and the recruitment department over the summer.
“There will probably be some more business done but happy with what we have done so far.”
United also need to get rid of certain players.
They’ve recently worked hard to tie down Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata, Andreas Pereira and Axel Tuanzebe to new contracts.
“I’ve got to say it’s been very good so far,” Solskjaer added. “I’ve got the backing and we’ve got the people we wanted, for now. There will probably be some more business being done.”
One or two more signings won’t be enough.
The boss should be pushing for more deals before the new season kicks-off.
We need two central midfielders, a centre-back and possibly a new striker!
