The Red Devils have already secured the transfer of Donny van de Beek from Ajax, while now are looking for other signings till the transfer window deadline of October 5.

United boss insists the club are “working hard” to improve the squad, saying: “We’re looking at a small pool of players who can add to the quality of our team and let’s see what we can do.

“The club’s working hard and I understand that they’re working hard. When we sit down and we discuss, sometimes it doesn’t happen as planned.

“Life isn’t a straight line here, sometimes things happen and I’ve always said it – I’m very happy to work with these players.

“There’s still a few weeks left of the transfer window, it might happen that we get someone in.

“I’ve worked with the club and they know what I feel the team and the squad needs and let’s see if we can add to what we have.”

Solskjaer’s shortlist includes Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho who has been heavily linked with the move to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window. Both sides haven’t reached an agreement, with the Red Devils reluctant to meet the transfer fee German side have set.

Meanwhile, United are close to signing Porto defender Alex Telles. The latter is also included in the club’s shortlist. They have already agreed over a five-year contract, however, a fee is yet to be agreed.

Third man Solskjaer wants to see at Old Trafford is Amad Traore from Atalanta. The 18-year-old has already managed to impress, despite making just three Serie A appearances.
