Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provides transfer update after Man Utd’s win against Luton

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted he’s open to strengthening his squad after his side booked their spot in the fourth round of the EFL Cup.

Goals from Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood gave United a 3-0 win against Luton, helping the club to put memories of a 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace behind them.

That defeat against Roy Hodgson’s side cast a cloud over the start of United’s season and Luke Shaw called for the club to make further signings in the final two weeks of the transfer window following the loss.

Donny van de Beek remains the club’s only signing so far this summer and Solskjaer had earmarked making as many as four signings in discussions with the club before the window opened.

With just two weeks left before the window closes, United are running out of time to add to their squad and though Solskjaer admits he doesn’t have any updates, he hinted the club are working on doing exactly that.

United hope to complete a deal for Porto full-back Alex Telles this week but negotiations with the Portuguese club have progressed slowly.

The 27-year-old has agreed on personal terms with United but Porto are seeking around £23m for his signature, even though he’s entering the final year of his contract.

United remain desperate to sign Jadon Sancho but look unlikely to cave into Dortmund’s demand to pay £108m for the England winger. Former United midfielder Darren Fletcher believes that Solskjaer has earned the right to be backed in the market and says the board should listen to his advice.

‘For me, trust Ole Gunnar Solskjaer,’ Fletcher told Sky Sports. ‘As long as the board is listening to him, the job he’s done has been fantastic, the recruitment has been great,” he told Sky Sports. ‘For me, I would rather wait a little bit longer and get the right target than go for someone mediocre in the meantime, the squad is good enough. The biggest thing is trusting Solskjaer.’
