Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits his Manchester United squad needs “two or three” new additions to reach their goal.

Solkjaer’s United side appears to have turned the corner.

They are moving up the league table and qualified top of their group in the Europa League.

Solskjaer is not resting on his laurels though.

Even after his side thumping of AZ Alkmaar 4 – 0, he admits his squad still needs some additions.

Academy prospect Mason Greenwood put on a masterclass in finishing, but United have never replaced Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

While the emergence of Scott McTominay and the improvements from Fred are resounding, they never replaced Ander Herrera.

These are all factors that the Norwegian tactician is aware of.

The Red Devils have been linked with a host of players. Erling Braut Haaland, Jadon Sancho, James Maddison and Saul Niguez to name but a few.

While the United boss is giving little away, he did confess to the press after his side’s latest victory he needs additions.

“We’re looking to strengthen in many positions”

“If you look at our squad compared to others we’re getting there.”

“But we need two or three players to have a squad with enough numbers to rotate throughout a long season and we’ll see what we sign.”
