A select round-up of the deadline day news relating to Manchester United…
So that is it…at least for now. The latest transfer window has slammed shut with Manchester United fans left wondering if it has been a good summer, a bad one or something in between.
For may it will be the latter, with United manager Louis van Gaal identifying and solving his problems at right-back and in the centre of midfield, while also bringing in the gifted Memphis Depay to add goal-threat up front.
But with time ticking down, what United fans really wanted was an experienced centre-back and a world-class striker, and neither of those arrived.
The French teenager may go on to become a superstar but considering United’s lack of numbers in the striking department, for now it is a big risk.
United also completed the signing of Newport County defender Regan Poole for an undisclosed fee.
The BBC reports that United signed the 17-year-old after he previously impressed on trial at the club.
Alas it was not to be, with the David de Gea deal falling at the final hurdle and Navas remaining at the Bernabeu as a result.
