It’s not looking too promising for the Manchester United faithful.

The summer transfer window is just around the corner and your guess is as good as mine as of which players Manchester United will sign, if any. The Red Devils, much to the fans’ annoyance, are often linked with every single player on the market, so it’s difficult to filter out the strong links from the tabloid nonsense.

However, something that can easily be agreed upon is that they have plenty of deadwood players that simply need to be sold, many of which residing in their defensive zone. To name just a few, these include Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo.

According to the Evening Standard, Manchester United now understand that their plans to raise some funds from their sales may have been naive, and they expect their prices to be hit by the Coronavirus outbreak. Alexis Sanchez‘ value will also skyrocket down.

I suppose it’s good that the Manchester United board have now snapped back into reality. As a neutral fan, I could only laugh when they were talking about being able to “exploit” the transfer market, this was clearly just a confidence tactic and I honestly don’t think they ever believed it themselves. It would have been incredibly naive if so.

This might mean that the club would be better off keeping these three players, even if it only for another year. After all, they wouldn’t have enough funds to sign worthwhile replacements. Of course, the other option is to include them in potential swap deals to gain some like-for-like replacements without spending a dime.

To conclude, there should no longer be any talk of Manchester United, or any club for that matter, “exploiting” the transfer market. I can’t see there being any blockbuster move go ahead this summer, let alone from Manchester United who have lost their pull in recent seasons.

Do you think United will be able to raise funds this summer?
