Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with their transfer business.

Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raphael Varane (Real Madrid) and Tom Heaton (Aston Villa) have all arrived with over a month of the market still to run.

“As a manager, you can't ask for more backing when you've got the two in as early as we have," said Solskjaer.

“Every manager would be happy the sooner and the earlier the deals are done. This year we've managed to get it sorted.

“The two we've got in will make a huge difference for us, this season short-term and also long-term.

“Raphael is in his prime, he's the same age as Harry Maguire, a year older than Eric Bailly and a couple years older than Victor. I've got a fantastic group of centre-backs.

“With Jadon as well, and with the young forwards we've got, it's exciting."

He added: “We've scrambled before towards the end of the window. Now I have to say I think we're in a good position."
