Manchester United have not enjoyed the best transfer window so far: they have been forced to concede defeat on a number of high profile targets, including Gareth Bale who was finally unveiled as a Real Madrid player today, to the collected hysteria of his new fans.
United might face problems if they are to ramp up their activity today, ahead of tonight’s 11pm deadline, especially with an underwhelming start to the season, and the continued problem of the perceived difficulty of competing with London clubs, but United fans have urged their new manager to show more ambition and make a marquee signing.
What is clear, despite those potential obstacles, is that David Moyes needs a big transfer window to appease those fans, who have seen all of their major rivals improving squads, and who were not universally enamoured by his appointment. One high-profile fan has offered his own opinion on what Moyes needs to do today, with a creative midfielder at the top of the bill:
It’s important to remember that United have form of making big signings on the last day of the window, with both Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov signing for big money in the last hours. So fans perhaps shouldn’t write off their club just yet.
It seems that long-term rivals Arsenal are about to complete a deal to bring in German international Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid, after the Spanish side signed long-term United target Gareth Bale, but with reports emerging that United made an enquiry for the German, it seems the Champions might have missed a major opportunity.
Though United sources have subsequently denied those reports, that still begs the question of why United were not in the running for Ozil, who would represent a huge boost to Moyes’ squad. If the side want to express their ambitions, to allay fan fears that they will be left behind, Ozil would have been the perfect option, and they could have scored the extra bonus of pushing Arsene Wenger’s nose out of joint in the process.
