Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that the club is eager to bring in more players this summer as the rebuild continues.

Solskjaer is clearly not satisfied with a few players even though he would never say that in the media. The Norwegian is set to start his first full season at the club and wants to ensure that all bases are covered before that.

While the likes of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have been brought in for massive sums, Solskjaer is still chasing a few targets. The club’s defensive issues are a public knowledge. The likes of Harry Maguire and Issa Diop have been linked with moves to Old Trafford. The latter is going to cost a fortune and Solskjaer says that the club is not going to pay inflated fees.

However, the former striker says that the club needs to sign a few more players.

“We are still in the market, we want more deals,” he said this morning, according to Daily Star.

“We don’t have to sell, but we also don’t have to over-pay.

“Looking at our squad now, we have a good squad.

“This squad will have to be more robust once the season gets going.

“Last season we had a run without defeats, but the end was disappointing.”

Solskjaer also spoke about the reported altercation between Paul Pogba and Jese Lingaard but said that it was portrayed wrongly in the media.

“For me, it is business as usual. When you are at Man United you expect these things to pop up in the summer.

“I have spoken to Pogba, [Romelu] Lukaku, [Marcus] Rashford, Jesse [Lingard] and as far as I’m aware we don’t have any bids for any of our players.

“We do not have to sell players.

“Paul, it looks like it is going to be media.

“He is a top professional, there have never been any problems.

“Jesse and Pogba walking around, portrayed as fight between the two boys, but that is nothing. No problems whatsoever.”
