​Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that he does not need to dive into the transfer market in order to replace Ander Herrera as he already has a couple of players who are ready to fill the Spaniard's shoes.


​Herrera joined Paris-Saint Germain on a free transfer earlier in July and mentioned that United had been too slow to meet his demands for a new contract. Since his departure, the Red Devils are looking at Sean Longstaff as a replacement but Newcastle have slapped a £50m pricetag on the midfielder.


However, as reported by the ​Mirror, in his latest interview, Solskjaer has specified that he is confident about Andreas Pereira, James Garner and Scott McTominay stepping up and filling the void left by Herrera's departure.




"Jimmy is young, he’s very young - only 18 - so you can’t expect too much from him but you can see he is going to be a top player," said Solskjaer of Garner, in quotes reported by Metro .


He continued, "Andy [Pereira] I expect a lot more from, Scotty [McTominay] I expect a lot more from. Those two between them had maybe 15, 20 starts last season. You expect them to have at least 20 each this year, maybe even more. That’s maybe two players into one that can replace Ander [Herrera]."


United have already signed winger Daniel James from Swansea for £15m and completed a £50m deal for full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace , but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has demanded further activity especially for in central defence and the striking department.
