Solskjaer on Man Utd transfers: “Anything from now is a bonus after Sancho and Varane. You never know in football. Anything can happen, ins and outs. Varane hasn’t done his medical yet but that should be okay. I’m very pleased with what we’ve done”.
Solskjær: “Some [players] might go on loan until Christmas, some might go for a season but I don’t want to be too light in any position.”
Samuel Luckhurst on outgoings: “I always thought this would be a dead week for Manchester United, with the training up at St Andrews. It’s kicked off elsewhere but United are still not at that stage where a club is desperate for Jones or Pereira.” [MEN]
Samuel Luckhurst : “I’ve said all along I think Manchester United will make three significant signings. Tom Heaton isn’t one of the three, obviously.” [MEN]
Samuel Luckhurst regarding United signing a DM: “I wouldn’t say it is ‘highly unlikely’ as it is an area of interest. Nor would I say it is expected. The emphasis is on outgoings. But business is slow.” [MEN]
Samuel Luckhurst : “Manchester United have looked at midfield options. The trouble is some spurious outlets will whip things into a frenzy and link any player who fits the profile to United, which winds up a lot of online fans.” [MEN]
Samuel Luckhurst : “From mid-August to the start of the next month, things will move on to accelerate quickly in this window.” [Facebook Live]
Fredrik Filtvedt : “Before the window opened, I was told that Manchester United would sign four players this summer. I don’t know if Heaton is included, but then there is at least one signing left before United get what they want. They want a midfielder and right-back in Trippier.”
Solskjaer would need to trim his squad before he could bring anyone else in after Sancho and Varane.
