“Am I looking to sign new players in January? No, for the moment, nothing changes,” Pellegrini said.
“Why? Because we have a squad that we think is the best squad for what we require. I don’t think we need to make changes so we continue the same way with Wilfried, with Kun, with Sterling and with Kelechi.
Adnan Januzaj is uncertain whether he has a future at Manchester United.

"There are things that you kind of already have an idea, that to play one day for Barcelona would be almost impossible, or to play for another English club other than Manchester, it's very complicated," he told AP. "But that's not 100 percent guaranteed. As I said before, there are no certainties in football.
"Everything is open, all leagues. I may end my career here with Real Madrid. I'm just being honest. I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. If I was 75 percent certain, I would say so, it wouldn't be a problem. But I have no idea.
"Right now I don't see myself playing in the American league, but that's right now. In two or three years I may think differently."
