Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to be drawn on Manchester United's progress in the transfer market on Tuesday amid reports they are closing in on Jadon Sancho.
United are said to be close to agreeing terms on a deal, with Borussia Dortmund prepared to receive a reduced initial fee so long as further instalments ensure they receive €120m (£108m) for the England winger.
Solskjaer gave nothing away when asked if United were looking to get their business done early in the transfer window.

Defenders Luke Shaw (ankle) and Axel Tuanzebe (foot) will not feature in the encounter at Old Trafford.

"Jesse [Lingard] will be starting tomorrow, but the team won’t be too different from LASK in March.”
Europa League matches from the quarter-finals onwards will be staged in Germany and United will stay over there for as long as they are in the tournament.
"There has been a discussion to how tournament pans out. At the moment we are staying, so we will be staying in Germany." Solskjaer added.
United will face Istanbul Basaksehir or Copenhagen in the last eight barring an unlikely turnaround.
