Manchester United’s spending power in 2014 took even the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City by surprise. There was a fear that given the Red Devils failed to qualify for the Champions League last season, they may fail to attract the top talents to Old Trafford.
Brendan Rodgers smugly suggested as much towards the end of last season and was made to look all the more foolish when United brought in Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao whilst the Liverpool boss settled for Lazar Markovic and Rickie Lambert.
United have spent more than £200 million in the last 12 months in a bid to get back to where they were before Sir Alex Ferguson opted for a career in publishing and his eventual replacement Louis van Gaal seems to be getting things back on track.
The Red Devils currently occupy third place in the Premier League and whilst a title push may be beyond them this season, a couple of top class additions this winter will see them amongst the favourites again when the 2015/16 campaign gets underway.
But with massive spending power comes massive speculation, some of which falls into the ‘never going to happen’ category.
Here we have gone through the rumours and identified five deals we can’t see happening at Old Trafford this month.
