Manchester United transfer news: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer calls more signings a "bonus", gives Paul Pogba an update


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that more signings are possible after summer deals with Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Raphael Varane. However, Manchester United's boss claims that his talks with Paul Pogba were positive.

The Red Devils finished second in both the Premier League and Europa League last year. They made two impressive moves to strengthen the team. United finally acquired Sancho. The winger's switch from Borussia Dortmund for PS73million was swiftly followed by a deal with Real Madrid to acquire Varane, their long-term target. Although there is still much to be done, Old Trafford continues to make it clear that any further acquisitions will depend on summer sales. Solskjaer seems to be ready for this. When asked about signings beyond the deadline, Solskjaer from United said that "anything is a bonus". "I must say that we have strengthened our position with the signings we've received. Let's see what happens. Football is unpredictable. It's possible for anything to happen in football, both good and bad. United has a lot of decisions left to make before the month ends. "Pogba speaks all positive" Pogba's future will be a hot topic. Paris St Germain is strongly linked to a player out of contract at Old Trafford next season. Solskjaer stated, "I hope all players think this is the right place to win trophies." Manchester United is a challenge that you must rise to when you sign up. Paul has returned and is fresh. He's always such an optimistic boy. All of the talks that I have had with him were positive. As United looks to win their first league title since 2013, there will be plenty of speculation. Solskjaer spoke about the need for incoming players to have a "character" that matches their abilities. Solskjaer was asked if they need to wait to see if Sancho is available. "We had an open dialog where we agreed to sign Jadon when he is available again. "If we had signed someone other than ourselves, we would have had a right-winger. It's all about finding the right characters. "I believe we proved it last year with Edinson(Cavani). Edi was essential and has been a role model for many. Veteran Cavani arrived in the United States with some rust, and the deadline-day signing joined during a slow start to the season. Solskjaer is aware that they cannot afford to have such stutters at this time. This is something he is trying to keep in mind while speculation continues about Andreas Pereira, Jesse Lingard, and Diogo Dallot. The United manager stated, "We need a large squad." The start is crucial, and the entire season is important. However, you must arrive in April or May with enough options and freshness. "Some might be on loan until Christmas, others might go for a year but I don’t want to be too light at any position." 'Healthy competition between goalkeepers' Solskjaer hopes that Sancho and Varane will be available for the season opener against Leeds. Solskjaer's decision on goalkeeper will also be interesting. Tom Heaton joined the goalkeeping team this summer to support Dean Henderson and David De Gea. The pair are preparing for another season of fighting for the number one spot. Solskjaer stated that goalkeeping depends on how the players work together. It's healthy competition. "If you are too comfortable, you won't get the best from yourself." You need to have an edge. It's not good if it's toxic or energy-sapping. "Last year, it was a completely new situation for David and for Dean. Let's see what happens this year. Henderson was unable to attend this week's training camp, Scotland, as he is still recovering from Covid-19. He had become the latest United player who tested positive for Covid-19. According to the PA news agency, the Premier League is not required to administer coronavirus vaccine as they follow Government guidance. Solskjaer stated that United will host a meeting with players in order for them and other players to discuss the topic. "Yeah, they've informed them, and some of them have been fully vaccinated. Some aren't sure," said the Norwegian. "But we're going have a larger session with them now because it's important for everyone to know what it's all about."
