‘Anything that happens is a bonus’ – Solskjaer speaks on more transfer

'Anything that happens is a bonus' - Solskjaer speaks on more transfer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked in an interview whether Man United will be pursuing more signings before the end of the transfer window on August 31 by journalist Arilas Ould-Saada,

He said: “I don’t think much is going to happen. If something happens, it is a bonus.

“You never know what happens in the world of football. But we’ve had a very good window. I am happy with what we’ve done.”

Man United are reportedly pursuing a loan move for Saul Niguez, but fierce competition from Chelsea probably indicates that Solskjaer isn’t fully confident about that.

The Red Devils will have to sell some players before being able to reinforce their squad, something which looks difficult with less than a week remaining before the end of the window.

Meanwhile, Sportvectru.com eariler reported that Chelsea are preparing a last-minute attempt to hijack Saul Niguez’s proposed move to Manchester United from Atletico Madrid.

The Spaniard has allegedly been told that he is free to leave the Wanda Metropolitano this summer, and a recent report from Fabrizio Romano claimed that he was set to join Man United ‘imminently’.

However, with other Premier League clubs being alerted to his availability, it appears that the Red Devils have a fight on their hands to secure Saul’s services in the next week.

According to The Guardian, Chelsea are considering a late loan move for Saul, with Thomas Tuchel keen to bolster his midfield options after sending Billy Gilmour out on loan to Norwich City.

The report adds that Danny Drinkwater, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ross Barkley may have to be offloaded before a bid for Saul can be lodged, though, and United are still thought to be at the head of the queue.

Despite struggling for starts last term, Saul has played the full 90 minutes in both of Atletico’s La Liga games so far this season, claiming the assist for Angel Correa’s second goal in their opening-day win over Celta Vigo.
