Solskjaer wants a right winger, a left-back and a centre forward before the window closes and the club are pursuing deals for Porto defender Alex Telles and Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho.
The club’s preference on a forward, however, is less clear but the Norwegian wants to add more options to his frontline given United will play Champions League football this term.
The pandemic has created an unprecedented climate in the transfer market and there’s expected to be plenty of business in the final days as teams look to cut their wage bill and raise funds after huge losses in revenue.
Real Madrid have offered United the chance to sign Jovic on loan but he is not the club’s ‘first option’ according to Fabrizio Romano.
The 22-year-old has struggled since his £54m arrival from Frankfurt and Madrid are keen on offloading him.
However, while United are not currently pursuing a deal for the Serbian, it’s claimed the Red Devils could reassess their options if an alternative option doesn’t present itself by Monday.
The Uruguay international left the club at the end of last season after his contract expired and he’s in the twilight of his career.
However, Cavani is still demanding sky high wages and he wants a long-term deal, despite being 33 years of age.
Should United be able to complete a deal for Sancho or Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, Solskjaer will feel less inclined to sanction any move for a centre forward.
The arrival of a right winger would allow Mason Greenwood to be used centrally more often, while Marcus Rashford and Odion Ighalo are also options.
