Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho hopes to sign two new players but is not sure the opportunities will arise.
United have added Brazil midfielder Fred to their squad for the 2018-19 season, along with teenage full-back Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant, who is set to serve as a back-up to David de Gea and Sergio Romero.
Anthony Martial has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, while Harry Maguire, Miralem Pjanic and Ivan Perisic are among United’s reported targets.
“One thing is what I would like,” he told ESPN. “Another thing is what is going to happen.
“I would get two more players.”
United’s strength in depth could be tested further due to the injury suffered by Antonio Valencia in the friendly draw with San Jose Earthquakes.
