The Red Devils manager didn't want to talk about their transfer business this morning.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he is very confident in his players despite their flaky start to the 2020-21 Premier League campaign.

The Red Devils, who have only been able to secure the services of midfielder Donny van de Beek so far, were thrashed 3-1 by Crystal Palace in their opening game of the English top flight, although, they bounced back to winning ways when they played Luton Town FC on Tuesday evening in the EFL Cup.

The United hierarchy have been criticised for not being serious in closing the gap on the top two clubs [Liverpool and Manchester City] in England.

All in all, Solskjaer didn't want to talk about the club's transfer business while speaking to the media this morning, adding that his main focus is on the match against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon.

"I am very confident in my players," he said when I asked if United fans would see some players come through the Old Trafford doors in the current transfer window.

"In football can’t predict too much. My focus is solely on the game. We need three points on Saturday, then we can talk again."

When quizzed about the future of England defender Chris Smalling, who has been training on his own since he returned from his victorious loan-spell with Serie A side Roma, the Norwegian coach replied: "Different things need to happen then.

"Let’s see if there is that change. Let’s see what happens to Chris when the transfer window closes."

United continue to be linked with the likes of Jadon Sancho but, it remains to be seen if the Premier League giants would sign more players before the transfer window closes on 5 October.
