Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Hopeful Of One Or Two Signings Before Transfer Deadline

Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen for 'one or two' more players to join his team before the transfer window closes in England in a few days.

The Red Devils are expected to announce the signing of Harry Maguire from Leicester after agreeing on a world record £80m deal with the season.

Maguire watched the United team train yesterday ahead of their International Champions Cup penalty shoot-out triumph in Cardiff before he was spotted driving out of Carrington.

Solskjaer told PA: "We're still hoping one or two deals can be done. We've been working on cases for a long time and suddenly the deal can be done when it's dragging on.

"As a club, we've had targets, but as a coach and manager when you go out on the pitch you have to work with the ones you have.

"You can't think 'what if he comes' or 'if he's sold'. The reality is you have to work with the ones that are there. I've never been thinking 'I'll play him there but he's coming in'.

"Everyone who has been in pre-season has a big part to play and most of them have impressed.

"But it (transfer speculation) doesn't stop (after the deadline) because you still have to plan for the next transfer window and next summer."
