Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign a striker before window shuts – report

Manchester United have enjoyed one of their best transfer windows in their modern history in a bleak climate. The campaign leading up to this summer was promising, even if the Europa League final loss to Villarreal dampened the mood momentarily.

Tom Heaton was the first signing of the summer and his arrival was shortly followed by Jadon Sancho, who finally put an end to a year-long pursuit. The 21-year-old signed a five-year contract in July and made his debut in United’s 5-1 demolition job of Leeds United in their Premier League curtain-raiser.

Shortly before that game, Raphael Varane was unveiled as the club’s third and most recent signings. Sancho and Varane immediately fill two positions Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted to strengthen following last season but according to reports, the Norwegian boss has a striker in his sight.

That’s according to The Telegraph, who claim that Solskjaer is happy with his club’s work this summer but he would still like a striker if one comes available in this window, despite Greenwood’s goal against Leeds and Edinson Cavani’s impending return from holiday.

Furthermore, they have also looked at Kieran Trippier to ease the workload of Aaron Wan-Bissaka after a full season as the only natural right-back at the club.

Diogo Dalot returned to the club following his season-long loan at AC Milan but questions over his future remain. The Portugal international has, however, featured in pre-season.
