Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says further signings will be a "bonus" following summer deals for Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, while the Manchester United boss says his talks with Paul Pogba have been positive.

Having finished second in the Premier League and Europa League last season, the Red Devils made a pair of impressive moves to bolster the squad.

United finally got their hands on Sancho, with the winger's £73million switch from Borussia Dortmund swiftly followed by striking a deal with Real Madrid for long-standing target Varane.

There remains work to do but the noises out of Old Trafford continue to suggest that further acquisitions would be dependent on summer sales – something Solskjaer appears braced for.

Speculation is sure to rumble on as United looked to push for their first league crown since 2013, with Solskjaer speaking about incoming players needing the "character" to match their ability.

Asked if that need to get is why it is important to be patient in the transfer market, like they were in pursuit of Sancho, Solskjaer said: "Definitely, and that's what the club and the owners have been very good at as well.

"We had an open dialogue where we said, OK, if we didn't get him there's no point for me signing someone we don't want when, Jadon for example, when he becomes available again we can go and get him.

"If we had signed someone else then we would have had a right winger. It's about getting the right characters.

The PA news agency understands that the Premier League are not mandating coronavirus vaccination as they follow Government guidance, with Solskjaer saying United will hold a session with players to discuss the vaccine.

"Yeah, we've informed them and some of them are already fully vaccinated, some are not sure," the Norwegian added.

"But we're going to have a bigger session with them now because I think it's important that everyone knows what it's about."
