Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted to the number of signings he might make this summer as he continues his rebuilding at Old Trafford.
United’s return to the Champions League has fuelled fan dreams of star signings in the next few weeks, and while that might be the case, Solskjaer has already is looking at another steady summer of progress in charge.
“It won’t be six or seven coming indefinitely. It will be a similar window,” Solskjaer said of United’s summer plans on January deadline day, having seen the club sign three players last summer and two in the winter.
“But here we go again, January is not even done but we are talking about the summer window. Hopefully, we can do our business early on.”
United have been linked with Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho who could cost more than 100 million pounds, putting pressure on their transfer budget.
A deal for someone like Sancho has the capabilities to revolutionise the club, but Solskjaer is also aware of the need to bolster the overall strength of his squad with more bargain buys in a similar mould to Daniel James last summer being considered.
