Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he is working on “one or two” more summer deals at Manchester United before transfer deadline day.

The Red Devils have been the busiest top-six club so far this summer, although their signings haven’t been marquee additions.

Manchester United snapped up Wales international Daniel James in an £18m deal from Championship side Swansea City despite his lack of top-flight experience.

Solskjaer has successfully strengthened at right-back after the Red Devils made Aaron Wan-Bissaka one of the most expensive English defenders following his £50m switch from Crystal Palace.

Manchester United have been linked with more British signings, including Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff and Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.

The 20-time English champions have also been credited with an interest in some top European players such as Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes and Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.

Speaking at his pre-match media conference ahead of Manchester United’s clash against Inter Milan in the International Champions Cup clash, Solskjaer gave an update on his transfer plans when asked about potential signings:

“Well, as I said, we are working on one or two.

“My objective here is that we have got to get ready for the games and the training sessions.”

Manchester United will start the new Premier League season with a clash against bitter rivals Chelsea FC on 11 August.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term after finishing behind Chelsea FC, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
