We’re still working on more signings, Solskjaer assures supporters


Solskjaer speaks on United transfer record

Machester United  boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has assured supporters the club is working hard to have new faces ahead of the new season.

The Red devils have moved in Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer and are currently in talks with Juventus for Paulo Dybala as well as Leicester for their defender Harry Maguire.

“We’re looking good,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports News. “Of course we’ve been working on a few cases over the summer. It’s never easy.

“The club has been very good and the market is very hard.

“We’re trying to get to the start of the season with the squad that we want.”

The Premier League transfer window closes on August 8, over three weeks earlier than most major European leagues, and Solskjaer believes the new date gives an unfair advantage to clubs in Europe.

“I think we have picked the short straw, to be fair,” said Solskjaer.

“When our league starts there is still three more weeks that clubs can be hovering around our players.

“I don’t think it is a good one for us, no.”

United’s pre-season preparations took a blow last week when defender Eric Bailly suffered a knee injury against Tottenham in the International Champions Cup.

The 25-year-old is expected to miss four to five months after undergoing surgery but Solskjaer insists the injury won’t change his plans in the transfer market.

“No, not really,” he said.

“Eric was a big blow for us. He had an operation just before summer, he worked hard and now it’s the other knee.

“It is never nice when you get a bad injury but luckily the surgeon was happy with the repair and he’ll be fine when he comes back.”
