Solskjaer makes Man Utd transfer promise with key signings still needed

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the Reds are still in the market for new players this summer.

United still need significant investment in the squad following the unacceptable sixth-placed finish last season.

So far Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have been the only summer additions, with Solskjaer seemingly targeting young, homegrown talent.

Speaking in his first press conference of the pre-season tour in Perth, Solskjaer said:

“We’re still in the market looking to do some business, as I’ve said before,” Solskjaer said as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

“But we’re patient, we’re Man United, we don’t have to sell and don’t have to overpay either. You have to have the right players at the right price.”

Solskjaer still needs two midfielders this summer as well as a central defender which now seems unlikely now that there is under a month to go until the transfer window shuts.

Maurouane Fellani and Ander Herrera’s recent departure’s have left gaps that need to be filled in an already weak midfield. MEN report that the Reds are keen on Newcastle youngster Sean Longstaff and Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes, with Southampton’s Mario Lemina also linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, a centre-back signing is still essential this summer as the Reds can’t afford to go into yet another season relying on the likes of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.

Harry Maguire is the defender most prominently linked and Goal report that the Leicester star is keen on a switch to Old Trafford this summer.

Lets hope Ed Woodward and co can get some more business done quickly to provide Solskjaer some help in what is already set to be an uphill task next season.
