OPINION: Manchester United’s spending situation becomes clearer in the transfer window
The last window in which the money flew around before Manchester United closed the draft was in January 2017. United negotiated the sale of Morgan Schneiderlin to Everton and Memphis Depay to Lyon, where the best part of the £ 45million bank for two players without a single Premier League start to their name all season.
Sean Goss, just a footnote, was also set aside for £ 500,000. Considering that United had only invested 25 million. Pound in Schneiderlin and 26.3 million. Pound in Depay just 18 months earlier, they had repaid an impressive outlay for two errors.
Schneiderlin was later cited as an example where the recruitment department under the current cultural reset regime would veto the leader’s recommended goals. United felt burned by signing Depay in a deal rising to £ 35m. At a time, French winger Kylian Mbappe, Kingsley Coman, Thomas Lemar and Ousmane Dembele appear. United mined Anthony Martial, hardly a roaring success, from the gold rush.
United vice-president Ed Woodward has previously dismissed the January window, described by club sources as a ‘seller’s market’ driven by the buyer’s desperation rather than the seller’s desperation. Alexis Sanchez was desperate.
