Manchester United are expected to sign Facundo Pellistri as well as Edinson Cavani, according to reports. Ed Woodward left time to complete a transfer transaction. But it looks like their efforts are starting to pay off, with the pair set to move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United are set to sign Cavani in a shock move.The Uruguay international has been a free agent throughout the summer, but now, with less than 48 hours to play, the Red Devils have moved on to bring him to the Premier League.

Cavani will guarantee United goals galore after scoring 200 times for PSG during a seven-year stint, while he will also act as a mentor to young duo Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial.

The 33-year-old isn’t the Red Devils’ only target, however.

They also considered a deal for young Pellistri and now El Observador claims the 18-year-old is on his way to Old Trafford.

Premier League does business: every transfer confirmed in summer window so far

Meanwhile, speaking ahead of United’s Premier League clash with Tottenham on Sunday afternoon, Solskjaer defended the club’s transfer activities.

Donny van de Beek remains their only confirmed signing and their pursuit of Jadon Sancho, while well documented, has yet to bear fruit.

And Solskjaer said: “When I came in and got the job, I gave my opinion on what the team should look like and how to get there.

“I feel like when we had these conversations the club understood my point of view.

“In all fairness, results are always key here. But the club also sees what we do with the club and what we want to do with the club.

“But also, the job part is to improve the team all the time, and so far I’ve been supported. We are working hard to be competitive again, among the best.

“I think football is different now than it was six or eight months ago, and these times are really unique.

“To make deals you have to watch a player for a very, very long time, and watch your target, and I think the process has worked well. ”
