Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says deals are being worked on in “one or two cases” before the summer window closes.
United are being linked with Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, with it being reported that the Argentina international could be part of a swap deal that sees Romelu Lukaku go the other way.
Solskjaer refused to name names following the recent Kristiansund pre-season match but said of possible comings and goings “we’re working on one or two cases”.
The Red Devils have so far this summer signed defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace and midfielder Daniel James from Swansea.
When asked about his thoughts on the squad ahead of next week’s transfer deadline, Solskjaer told Sky Sports News on Thursday: “I think we’re looking good. “Of course, we’ve been working on a few cases over the summer. It’s never easy.
I have to say the club has been very good but the market is very hard. We’re trying to get into the start of the season with the squad that we want.”
Solskjaer has also expressed his concern about the transfer window closing earlier in England than in other countries. The 46-year-old said: “I think we have picked the short straw to be fair.
Because you know when our league starts, there are still three more weeks, there could still be clubs hovering around your players. I don’t think it’s a good one for us, no.” The window closes next Thursday, with United playing their Premier League opener at home against Chelsea three days later.
Their final pre-season friendly is against AC Milan in Cardiff this Saturday.11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. Buy NOW!!!
