“Anything from now is a bonus,” he said according to the Manchester Evening News.
“I have to say that, with the two signings we’ve got, we’ve strengthened where we wanted to strengthen. Let’s see what happens. You never know in football. Anything can happen, ins and outs.
“We need a big squad. The start is important, the whole season is important, but you need to arrive in April and May fresh and with enough options. Some might go on loan until Christmas, some might go for a season but I don’t want to be too light in any position.
“We need players with X-factor who can make a difference. Bruno last year for example, maybe I overplayed him but it was because he was so important for us. Adding these extra players – Jesse [Lingard] coming back, Jadon [Sancho] coming in, Anthony [Martial] being fit again – it gives us a lot more to work with.”
