Man Utd stance on Championship deals and Ismaila Sarr with EFL window still open

Manchester United do not intend to bolster their squad further with the addition of any players from the Championship.

The EFL transfer window is still open, meaning the Red Devils can make signings from the domestic divisions below until next Friday.

United ended the international and Premier League transfer deadline having made just three senior signings.

Midfielder Donny van de Beek was brought in from Ajax, while free agent Edinson Cavani and Porto left-back Alex Telles were both snapped up on Deadline Day.

Fans are furious at the club’s failure to land a world-class right winger that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had prioritised all summer.

The saga surrounding Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho became a farce as time went on and no agreement was reached over the £108m-valued talent.

No deal materialised for their back-up option Ousmane Dembele either as he remained at Barcelona, despite the La Liga side’s willingness to sell.

United only wanted a loan for either him or Ismaila Sarr of Watford, however, refusing to spend big on the two alternatives to Sancho.

The Red Devils spent a little in excess of £50m in the end on the transfer fees for Van de Beek and Telles, while rivals Chelsea forked out over £200m on top quality new faces amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The lack of business and bad atmosphere around the club right now has transpired onto the pitch with United having lost their opening two home Premier League matches, including their 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Tottenham on Sunday.

Solskjaer has until next Saturday to get his squad organised and settled with the international break offering time for reflection.

However, he won’t be bringing in any further additions, with young wingers Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri having been signed too.

Pellistri is being included in the first-team squad going forward, and Sarr will not be moving to Old Trafford.

Watford are still open to offers for the £40m-rated attacker, who tormented Premier League champions Liverpool just last season.

But United are no longer seeking a deal, and Goal say one reason being is they had to register their Champions League squad by yesterday.

Tuesday’s deadline means anyone arriving from now onwards, from the Championship, would not be able to play in Europe during the group stage.

Bournemouth’s David Brooks has been another target, but no swoop is on the cards for Daniel James’ Wales international team-mate either.

Goal add Solskjaer is happy with the forwards at his disposal, and he is said to feel as though he does have variety in attack.

But the manager is under mounting pressure to deliver results and turn the team’s fortunes around quickly, as Daily Star Sport understands out-of-work Mauricio Pochettino has been sounded out over replacing the Norwegian.
