Solskjaer: Man Utd ‘must strengthen’ after ‘big step forward’”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful Manchester United can make new signings before the transfer deadline after hitting a brick wall in talks over Jadon Sancho and losing out to Tottenham in the battle for Gareth Bale. Eric Bailly has come back and is fit, and is looking really good.

United have been chasing Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho all summer but with them no closer to agreeing a fee with the German club they could look at alternatives and Sarr is believed to be high up on their list.

"I've spoken to Mason, what we speak about and discuss will be between the two of us", Solskjaer told reporters ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.

He said: "We want to develop. I've worked and the club worked hard, we gave Mason enough time on the pitch and, exposure in the media".

"I want players in the building that we want to work with and who wants to be a part of it and who wants to be here", Solskjaer added.

"Of course we've done some business with Donny", the United boss. "I know some people are scared to speak up about because they may not get a job in the future".

The Red Devils finished third last term in Solskjaer's first full campaign in charge as they secured a return to the Champions League for this season.

'That showed what we're capable of and we developed throughout the season. "We can be best at the things that don't cost anything - the culture here, the training, the coaching, getting fitter". It's a group I don't really want to say what they cannot do - they can go as far as they want themselves.

"Since Sir Alex left we've been average, averaging fifth position". Last season we got third which was a big step forward. Yes, goalkeeper David de Gea will feel aggrieved he was punished for moving marginally off his line when saving Ayew's penalty before Zaha scored the retake, but United were the architects of their own downfall. "I'm privileged to have the goalkeeping department I have".

Paul Pogba is available after recovering from coronavirus and so is Luke Shaw following an ankle injury.

"You want always to have as long as possible with players".

"Of course, you see other clubs and what they do, they put a challenge up for us and our response has to be results, that's the response".
