The heart of the matter

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in an interview with Sky Sports has confirmed that the Red Devils are looking to add more new names to the squad before the start of the Premier League on August 8.

We're looking good,
Of course we've been working on a few cases over the summer. It's never easy.
The club has been very good and the market is very hard.
We're trying to get to the start of the season with the squad that we want

The Norweigan also spoke about the earlier closure of the English Transfer window:

I think we have picked the short straw, to be fair
When our league starts there is still three more weeks that clubs can be hovering around our players.
I don't think it is a good one for us, no
