Manchester United is one of the richest clubs in the world with a fan base that covers the entire globe. They have been the most successful English club in the Premier League era with 13 Premier League titles to their name. They also have the highest number of English top-flight titles with 20.
In recent years, Manchester United has been extremely active in the transfer market with numerous additions to their squad. With a new manager aka Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm this summer, one can expect the Red Devils to be involved in a lot of transfer dealings over the course of the next few months.
However, Manchester United have kicked off their Premier League campaign but are still looking to strengthen their squad before the October 5 transfer deadline.
The club has secured just one deal so far in this transfer window – signing midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax for £40million.
Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has been their top target all summer but Borussia Dortmund has played hardball over his fee, and it looks like he’ll be staying where he is.
Alex Telles could be incoming before the deadline, though, from Porto, while Ousmane Dembele of Barcelona is among a host of attackers being linked with a move to Old Trafford, as an alternative to Sancho.
