The Lowdown: Busy summer
The club were proactive in the summer after appointing Erik ten Hag as manager, bringing in six first-team players.
Brazilians Antony and Casemiro were the two most expensive additions, whereas Lisandro Martinez also joined in a high-profile deal.
Over £200m was spent, and it looks as if United supporters may have to wait until next summer to see more players make the move to Old Trafford.
The Latest: Sheth’s comments
Sheth, talking to GiveMeSport, was asked about United’s transfer plans heading into the New Year. He shared ‘information’ he’s been given, claiming that the Red Devils aren’t expected to be active in January.
“What I would say is that clubs like Manchester United and a lot of other clubs’ focus is usually on a summer transfer window.
“January is sometimes seen as a panic month, but the information that I’ve been given is that United aren’t likely to be that busy during this transfer window.”
The Verdict: Centre-forward?
You could argue that Ten Hag needs a new centre-forward in the New Year, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo being told last month that he can leave in January.
Should the 37-year-old depart, Ten Hag would be left with just one out-and-out centre-forward in Anthony Martial, although Marcus Rashford can also occupy a central role if required.
However, it could be wise for the club to actively hunt a new striker, with United set for a busy second half to the season where they potentially may still be playing in four different competitions.
