Ferdinand tells fans why Manchester United will ‘leave thsi window alone’
Manchester United will “leave this window alone”, says ex-defender Rio Ferdinand
United were linked with so many players over the transfer window but failed to get many deals actually done, with Alex Telles, Donny Van De Beek and Edinson Cavani the three players that the club could complete deals for.
That has led to rumours in the media that United would back Solskjaer in the January transfer window and hand him some more funds that would allow him to bring in a few more faces, and there is also talk that a few players would also be leaving.
And Ferdinand cannot see United spending in a mid-season market that is notoriously difficult to navigate, The legendary ex-United centre-half has told Stretford Paddock: “I don’t think he’ll bring anyone in.
“He is hoping that Diallo from Atalanta will come in and set the world alight in training – so he gives him some food for thought.
“Listen, it is alright saying we want someone but who is selling in this market right now? I don’t see many teams who are willing to sell players right now unless you’re going to break the bank and pay monstrous fees. I don’t think Man United want to be doing that right now.
“I think Man United will leave this window alone. I’d be very surprised if they go in again.”
If United did manage to secure a transfer deal or two this month, it would certainly boost their chances of beating off both Manchester City and Liverpool for that Premier League title come the end of the season
