As a result of Solskjaer’s intervention, Man Utd received two surprising deadline-day transfer proposals.
Apart from Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut, Manchester United had a quiet transfer deadline day.
Manchester United’s deadline day was relatively quiet, but the club did formally confirm Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford, 12 years after he left for Real Madrid. Despite the team’s evident need for a defensive midfielder, that was enough to keep Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and fans around the world thrilled.
Apart from Ronaldo’s return, it appeared from the outside that United had a relatively quiet deadline day in comparison to recent years.
Last October, the Red Devils rushed four last-minute agreements to get Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles, Amad, and Facundo Pellistri over the line.
Now it’s a different story, as United set a new standard this summer by completing the majority of their work on schedule.
Raphael Varane, Tom Heaton, and Jadon Sancho were all signed ahead of the new season, but the Frenchman was unavailable for the 5-1 thrashing of Leeds.
NEWS FLASH: Manchester United squandered a game-changing deal worth £40 million.
However, subsequent sources have shown that there was a lot of action behind the scenes at Old Trafford on deadline day in terms of outgoings.
Of course, Daniel James went to Leeds, but according to L’Equipe, Anthony Martial was also on loan from Lyon.
The forward declined, instead vowing to battle for his spot at Manchester United and pledging his future to the club.
Everton were also close to concluding a loan deal for Donny van de Beek, according to Dutch site AD.
MAN UNITED player Anthony Martial has reportedly turned down a last-minute deadline day transfer offer. Saul Niguez, a Chelsea midfielder, has revealed his shirt number and other critical information. Manchester United missed out on a game-changing signing worth £40 million, according to Thomas Tuchel.
Despite rarely playing the Dutchman, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer intervened to stop the move.
Van van Beek was rumored to be willing to transfer to Goodison Park in order to play more often, but Solskjaer had none of it.
Guido Albers, the player’s agent, has now confirmed that United were hesitant to consent to any transaction or even talk.
He told Voetbal International, “Manchester United is keeping everything back.”
He later stated that United’s refusal to cooperate was “disappointing.”
