Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is remaining optimistic over new arrivals this summer.
So far, the Reds have brought in Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace and Daniel James from Swansea this summer, but the squad still needs significant investment.
Solskjaer was coy when asked over potential transfers but is remaining positive with the window closing in under a month.
“I think you need to speak to Ed or others. At the moment, I can’t give you any updates, no. Well timing is obviously an issue but we’re working as I said before, of course we’re optimistic,” the Norwegian said as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

Solskjaer needs to completely rebuild this squad and there is an understanding that this can not all be done in one window.
However, the midfield and defence remain key areas the club must address this summer. It is vital the Reds sign a centre-back to partner Victor Lindelof in defence next year as they cannot continue to rely on the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.
Leicester City’s Harry Maguire has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford and MEN reported that the Reds had a £70m offer rejected for the England defender at the start of the month.
The report claims Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes and Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff are midfield targets that the club are looking at bringing in, although there is nothing to suggest a deal for either of these players will happen imminently.
