Manchester United fans had quite huge expectations that their club would be making at least one or two signings in the January winter transfer window as they needed some additions to their tram to bolster the squad, but it was not going to happen. There were a couple of players linked with moves to Old Trafford but none of them eventually made the move and as a matter of fact, one of those players, David Zakaria, ended up agreeing to sign for Italian Serie A giants Juventus instead.

The Red Devils manager Ralf Ragnick was expected to convince the club’s board to bring some additions to the team but instead, there were exits without any replacements. Donny van de Beek left and joined Everton on loan till the end of the season, the same was with Anthony Martial, who left for Spain and joined the Spanish La Liga side Sevilla, and Amad Diallo leaving the club to sign for Scottish Premiership giants Rangers also on loan.

Jesse Lingard almost left the club close to the transfer deadline day as Newcastle United tried to snap up the England international midfielder before the closure of the transfer widow but they were not able to reach an agreement for the deal to go through. Lingard therefore stayed put at Old Trafford even though he would have loved to seal the move away I’m a bid to get more game time as he wishes to be included in the England team for Qatar 2022 World Cup.

However, it has been revealed that the reason United didn’t sign any player was because they are yet to have a permanent manager and they want to make sure that they get new players after a new manager comes in so they won’t be getting a player that the new manager will not make use of.
