Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened up on the club’s transfer business so far ahead of Saturday’s Premier League opener with Leeds. Tom Heaton, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane have all joined the Red Devils this summer. And the 48-year-old isn’t ruling out more reinforcements, either, as he plots a path to title glory.
Manchester United have been busy in this summer’s transfer window.
Heaton was the first player to arrive, with the veteran arriving on a free from Aston Villa where he’ll now provide competition for David De Gea and Dean Henderson.
Sancho then followed, with the 21-year-old joining from Borussia Dortmund in a massive £73million deal.
And United have also sealed a deal for Varane, with an official announcement regarding the Real Madrid star expected by the end of the week.
At present, the Red Devils have been linked with Kieran Trippier, Ruben Neves, Saul Niguez and Eduardo Camavinga as they eye the title next time out.
