Having enjoyed what some have called a crazy summer of spending in the transfer market, Manchester United fans got more accustomed than most to seeing new faces pose with the red and white scarf with beaming smiles all round.
With Anthony Martial arriving for a whopping £36 million on deadline day, becoming the world’s most expensive teenage signing ever in the process, United finally alleviated their lack of striking options having waved goodbye to Radamel Falcao, Robin van Persie and most recently Javier Hernandez this summer.
With Wayne Rooney previously entrusted with carrying the torch as United’s recognised number nine this season, only time will tell whether he’ll continue to battle away in that position or whether Martial’s arrival drops him back into his more familiar number 10 role.
That said, a striking trio of Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and James Wilson still doesn’t strike so much fear into opposition defences but it’ll do for now claim our resident Red Devils fans who are propping up the Football Transfer Tavern bar this evening.
Having also landed Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Sergio Romero, this list doesn’t include a new centre back that many United fans have been crying out for over the duration of the last couple of transfer windows.
Trailing after the signature of Nicolas Otamendi for much of the summer, cross-town rivals Manchester City eventually got their hands on the Argentine and if a long-term injury is suffered by the likes of Chris Smalling and Daley Blind, perhaps Louis van Gaal may have to look towards the free agent list to address certain squad shortfalls.
That’s why today we’ve devised a list of five players that are still free to complete a move as we continue on through September after deadline day.
