Manchester United started the new season with a 3-1 loss at home to Crystal Palace in the Premier League. Ole Gunnar Solskajer's team seemed off the pace and, with just two weeks left in the window, will look to make more additions to the squad.

Luke Shaw urges board to strengthen Manchester United squad
The Red Devils returned to training late due to the extended Europa League campaign last season, affecting their preparation for the new season. They have now been linked with a move for Alex Telles of Porto.
We are a very good group but personally, I think we need more players to strengthen the squad. It can give us a boost. When you look around at how other teams are strengthening their teams, then we must also do it to keep up with the others.
Possibly everything went wrong. From my point of view the pre-season that we’ve had altogether is not the correct way it should have been – we’ve had a week all together. We haven’t been able to prepare in the way we wanted and that’s not an excuse because we have the quality of players to be able to win games like this.
Alex Telles opens up on potential Manchester United move
Porto left-back Alex Telles opened up on his future amid speculation of a move to Manchester United. The Brazilian is in the last year of his contract in Portugal and Solskjaer is looking to add a left-back to his squad.
I’m a guy who focuses a lot on work, people believe what they want, say what they want in the newspapers, but the most important thing is to be focused on my work. You know that and so do my teammates, whatever happens, I’m focused on the club, I’m here, I’m playing.
I have people who work for me, I just have to focus on what my job is. If I knew anything, I wouldn’t need to have people working for me. I have people who take care of that and I have to focus on my work
