Where are the Man Utd signings


Another season is just about to begin and again Man United again fail to attract top players. What is going on at Man Utd? Why do they fail to sign top quality players. I agree with Paul Scholes that unless United sign more players it will be another poor season.

@crackentone you overlook the fact that the same exact team of players minus fellaini came 1st the season before.

I'm not saying it was all down to moyes, most of the players underperformed, and injuries to key players didn't help, but I don't think them players turned bad overnight

Well united seem to be closing on di Maria, who I think is massively underrated by Real Madrid and one of their best players.

@Doozers20 In 38 games United finished 7th because of bad tactics. This is nonsense they finished were they did because they were not good enought. In the current squad there are some players i'm not sure about. You mentioned Mata and Shaw not to sure about both of them, I really think Shaw is another over hyped english player.

Oh as regarding special players there are non available to United because they are at Real Madrid and Barcelona. They get the special players in the world.

@crackentone yes United finished where they did because of my attitude...

I had this 'attitude' towards the end of last season. I said what I think United need and I still believe that. They're still missing a strong defender and midfielder in my opinion. I also think United finished where they finished due to inept tactics more than anything else.

I think Mata, Rooney and RVP have the potential to have special seasons, and United have a gem in Januzaj, Shaw and Herrera have the potential to be fantastic too, but like I said, I think United need signings in key positions.

What 'special players' do you believe are available for United to get then?

@Doozers20 You had this silly attitude last season and look where United finished. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern munich and even PSG have special players United have none.

@crackentone I'm not saying they don't, I think they need an experienced centre back to lead the back line and a power house midfielder minimum.

My point is that Real Madrid and Barca don't always get their man straight away, also United have made 2 signings early on. Also, did you listen to Van Gaal when he said he'll analyse the squad 1st? So we've been working from a bit later on anyway

It's also that we have no idea about what's going on behind the scenes, and I don't think the media do too, having linked United with 50+ players, so to say they are failing with targets is a bit confusing as we don't actually know who the targets are.

There is also many parties involved in doing a deal, United could do anything possible and the player may not want to come.

I expect United to sign Benatia and Rojo at least, possibly Vidal also, but I don't particularly think United fans have any more right than say Aston Villa or Newcastle fans to demand signings, we choose to support the club, so support them regardless.

@Doozers20 Now your gonna start knit picking. I could do that all day also, most people agree United need a couple of world class players.

@crackentone Oh right ok, at what point in the window did they sign Bale? How long did they take to sign Ronaldo? About 2 years I think.

Just because United are linked, doesn't mean they are after them.

Real Madrid and Barcelona get their players in straight away no messing about with them. To many players are linked to United but get signed to other other clubs. Its plain to see United are a struggling club at the moment.
