Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he isn't sure if Manchester United will make more signings this summer, but added "you never know in the world of football".

The Red Devils have already brought in Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Tom Heaten so far, and have been linked with the likes of Eduardo Camavinga, Kieran Trippier, and Saul Niguez ahead of the August 31 deadline.

However, Solskjaer insisted that any new incomings at Old Trafford would be a "bonus".

“I don’t think much is going to happen,” he told Norwegian journalist Arilas Ould-Saada. “If something happens, it is a bonus. You never know what happens in the world of football. There’s about a week left.

"We have had a very good window. We have brought in two great football players. Raphael will lift us a lot, and Jadon will only get better and better. We are happy with what we have done, and then we work in the field to become a better team.

"We need to get in better shape, there is no doubt about that. There are many who have played one and a half games. It’s not much. We are laying the foundation now, then it is a long season."

Last week, the United boss admitted he is still open to expanding his squad, and hinted at a desire to hang on to Jesse Lingard, Diogo Dalot, and Phil Jones, despite the trio finding themselves on the fringes.

“We need a big squad,” Solskjaer said. "Some might go on loan until Christmas, some might go for a season but I don't want to be too light in any position."
