Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says further signings will be a “bonus” following summer deals for Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, while the Manchester United boss says his talks with Paul Pogba have been positive.
Having finished second in the Premier League and Europa League last season, the Red Devils made a pair of impressive moves to bolster the squad.
United finally got their hands on Sancho, with the winger’s £73million switch from Borussia Dortmund swiftly followed by striking a deal with Real Madrid for long-standing target Varane.
There remains work to do but the noises out of Old Trafford continue to suggest that further acquisitions would be dependent on summer sales – something Solskjaer appears braced for.
“Anything from now is a bonus,” United manager Solskjaer said when asked about further signings before the deadline.
“I have to say that with the two signings we’ve got, we’ve strengthened where we wanted to strengthen.
“Let’s see what happens. You never know in football. Anything can happen, ins and outs.”
