Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is set to have a busy deadline day with the Red Devils desperate to bring in reinforcements before the 11pm cut-off.

United’s problems were brought to the fore in their 6-1 drubbing against Tottenham on Sunday.

Former Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has flown into Manchester and will pen a two-year deal to solve Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s forward problem.

And there will also be a new left-back following the Uruguayan as Alex Telles has agreed to join from Porto.

Solskjaer’s priority target this summer has always been a new right winger and United have pursued Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho for many months.

However, the German club have refused to budge from their £108m valuation and are unlikely to sell the England international on deadline day.

Other options being considered by Old Trafford bosses are Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic and Juventus’ Douglas Costa.

If United do not buy a winger before the deadline they can still capture players from the Football League until October 16.

Watford’s Ismalia Sarr and Brentford’s Said Benrahma are being watched by Solskjaer’s scouts.
