The transfer window is now in to its 12th day but Manchester United are yet to make any new additions.
It’s not for a lack of trying, though. United are continuing to work hard to get the players that Erik ten Hag has identified to improve his squad. The new manager wants at least five new faces with Frenkie de Jong, Christian Eriksen, Antony, Jurrien Timber and a reserve goalkeeper the current targets.
Meanwhile, it looks like Anthony Martial may remain at Old Trafford this summer despite his desire to leave. The Frenchman has scored eight goals for United in the last two seasons and flopped during a four-month loan spell with Sevilla this year.
Ex-Juventus star makes Paul Pogba prediction as Man United ‘problems’ could help him flourish
Former Juventus star Simone Pepe has explained how Paul Pogba’s disastrous spell at Manchester United has enabled his return to Juventus.
Pogba endured a torrid six years at Old Trafford following his move back to the club from Juventus. Having hoped to win trophies at United on his return, Pogba instead became the poster boy for United’s rapid downfall since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
Despite his exit from the Theatre of Dreams having already been confirmed, Pogba has remained a focal point for fans’ anger after his Amazon Prime series, ‘The Pogmentary’, saw the 29-year-old take aim at the club. In the five-part documentary, the Frenchman accused United of not caring about him as well as criticising them for their £300,000-per-week contract offer.
Sources say “nobody is breaking the door down” to sign Martial after a campaign where he managed two club goals and four starts for United.
