Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United are still working on more summer signings and insists the club is backing him in the transfer market.
United have signed winger Daniel James from Swansea and right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace so far this summer, and Solskjaer says it’s likely there will be more arrivals before the window closes.
“It’s a long-term and it’s a short-term project. You cannot just think three years down the line, so we’ve got short-term goals as well,” the Norwegian told the club’s official website.
“I think we’ve been quite calm and good in the market as we’ve got the right people, and we’re still working on a case or two.
“Of course, we’re always looking to improve the squad and, all over the summer, I’ve been in touch with Joel [Glazer] and Ed [Woodward] and all the recruitment people, and analysis people. I’ve got to say it’s been very good so far.
“I’ve got the backing and we’ve got the people we wanted, for now, and there will probably be some more business being done.”
The arrivals of James and Wan-Bissaka – both 21 years old – appear to demonstrate Solskjaer’s philosophy of targeting younger, hungrier players who can be developed, and the United boss believes they have the qualities to flourish at Old Trafford.
