Man Utd’s transfer policy this summer has been far from perfect. With only a week to go until the window slams shut, the Red Devils need to up their game.
The signings of Fred and Diogo Dalot are clearly important, and Lee Grant is a useful addition, but it’s clear that further improvement is needed.
However, amidst all the talk of a few new faces on the pitch, there is also talk of a potential new face on the sidelines. According to the Sun, Man Utd are considering replacing Jose Mourinho with Zinedine Zidane – if the Portuguese decides to leave the club, or, indeed, if he is forced out.
If Zidane does join the club, he – like Mourinho – will be expecting a few major changes, especially when you contrast the current squad at Old Trafford with that at Real Madrid.
He should, then, only accept the post on the basis of landing a few new faces, and these TWO major signings would be a good place to start…
