Manchester United Football Club have made three big-money signings so far this season, with Jose Mourinho sanctioning moves for Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic. On top of that, we’ve also added Zlatan Ibrahimovic as he has put pen to paper on a new Old Trafford deal.
There has been plenty of deliberation about whether the Red Devils will bring in a fourth signing, perhaps a winger, but now, Gary Neville has had his say on the situation and he reckons that Manchester United’s business is probably done.
Predominantly, it’s due to the fact that the wide players within the current squad at Manchester United are in great form.
“I don’t think Man United will be desperate to do any business,” he told Sky Sports.
“Jose Mourinho has been quite honest in saying he wanted four [signings] and he’s got three plus Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“I think he wanted a wide player but I don’t think he’ll be too concerned because of the form of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata.”
At the end of the day, if that world-class name was available for the right price then I’d fully expect Mourinho to dip his toes into the water once again; but he cannot make a signing just for the sake of it.
At the start of this season, the squad has looked in brilliant shape, so why risk disrupting that atmosphere for a signing that you’re not 100% convinced by.
The manager has got his boys playing some wonderful football right now and the dressing room will be absolutely buzzing. Why not keep the faith in Anthony Martial who is playing so well out on that left-wing? Let him keep going because we all know just how good of a footballer he is.
