Solskjaer kept his cards close to his chest when asked if United are signing James this morning.
"Well it's been mentioned, I don't know how many names have been mentioned since I've come in," Solskjaer said. "There's players that I've barely seen that I've read we are going to sign.
"There's loads of speculation, but the earlier you can do the transfers the better it is. When you come in on the first of July, you like to have a nice picture of what this team is going to look like."
Solskjaer is through to be eager to get all of United's summer transfer business done before they jet off on their pre-season tour.
