But according to the Daily Mail, they will continue their spending when the window re-opens in January when they launch a bid for Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.
Strootman – amongst others – was linked with a move to the Red Devils all summer but a serious knee injury put pay to the 24-year old’s potential Premier League move.
Manchester United bosses are hoping that by January, the Netherlands international will have returned to full fitness and that is when they will make their move.
Six players – including Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria – arrived at Old Trafford this summer bring their spending up to an incredible £150 million in a single transfer window.
