Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives Man Utd transfer update after Jadon Sancho and Gareth Bale setback

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed Manchester United remain in the market for further reinforcements after missing out on Gareth Bale.

United were linked with a move for the Real Madrid winger, as an alternative to Jadon Sancho, but he now looks set to complete a move to top-four rivals Tottenham.

Reports have suggested that United are becoming increasingly frustrated with their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund star Sancho, with the two clubs still way apart on valuations.

The Germans have slapped a £108million price tag on the England forward, a value that the United hierarchy feel is too high in the current climate.

With their Premier League opener on the horizon, Solskjaer has got just one deal over the line, with Donny van de Beek signing from Ajax for £40m.

And while Solskjaer is delighted with that transferl, he still believes more players are needed for the team to develop.

“Of course, we’ve done some business with Donny, very happy delighted to get him in, an exceptional smashing lad that’ll give us something,” he said in his pre-match press conference.

“I can’t say anything about other clubs’ players though, can’t speculate.

“We understand to get further we need to develop what we have and strengthen the team but let’s wait and see if we manage to bring anyone in.

“I’ve been in dialogue with the club, we’re always discussing and let’s see if we can bring anyone in.”

Fans have become increasingly frustrated with United’s perceived failures in the transfer window but Solskjaer claims they are still working hard on arrivals, with the October 5 deadline looming.

He added: “Fans will always want the best possible team to watch, the best possible Man United team and that’s the passion we want and the history we have.

“We want to take a step forward and we can go into the new season with confidence but we’re looking to give the group a boot and we’re working on it.”
