Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said that the club are going to sign one more player and they have "plenty of time to do that," but he is hoping to complete a deal before the Premier League season starts in under a fortnight.
Mourinho did not want to confirm if the player involved is Paul Pogba because the midfielder is contracted to Juventus. United's first game of the league season is on Aug. 14 when they play away against Bournemouth.

Speaking to BT Sport ahead of United facing Everton in Wayne Rooney's testimonial on Wednesday, Mourinho said: "We will sign one more player for sure. I don't want to speak about Paul, because he's a Juventus player.
"I don't like to talk about other clubs' players and I don't like it when they talk about my players.
"The reality is that we are going to sign one more player. The deadline is Aug. 31 and we have plenty of time to do that, but we would like to do that before the Premier League starts."
United face Leicester in the Community Shield on Sunday before travelling to Bournemouth for their Premier League opener the following week.
Mourinho has overseen the signings of Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic since being appointed earlier in the summer and has consistently said he wanted to bring in a fourth player.
United are reportedly ready to pay £100million to bring Pogba back to Old Trafford.
The situation has been been protracted with the player firstly involved at Euro 2016 and then taking a holiday.
Reports that a deal is imminent have consistently appeared, although a video which emerged on Wednesday did raise some doubt.
In footage from YouTube channel ItalianFootballTV, Pogba appears to say "yes" when he is asked, as he signs a football outside a New York hotel, if he is staying at Juve.
That came after Pogba's agent Mino Raiola tweeted last Friday: "Journalist = parrots. No deal done between clubs. It's a game between Italy press and UK press who announce it first and who is worse."
