    United have been linked with both attackers since the summer but were seemingly unwilling to pay the fees demanded.

    Gakpo joined Liverpool in a deal which could rise to £44million, while Chelsea have verbally agreed to pay the £10m loan fee Atletico Madrid are demanding for Felix.

    That has frustrated several Red Devils supporters, some of whom have taken aim at the board.

    One wrote: “Absolute joke we couldn’t do this [Felix] deal was only £11m as well.”

    Another added: “We need new ownership immediately. Why are we losing out on the best talent to other clubs like this? Gakpo, now Felix??? Come on man!”

    And a third said: “So Gakpo and Felix joining hey? Weghorst it is 😂😂.”

    One commented: “Felix goes Chelsea and Gakpo goes Liverpool, ridiculous they were cheap as well.”

    Another remarked: “We lost Gakpo and now Felix too 😂 Two signings I was so sure about. Wow.”

    After missing out on the pair United have turned their attention to Burnley star Wout Weghorst, who is on loan at Besiktas.

    But the Turkish outfit rejected the proposal and have insisted they want to keep the ex-Wolfsburg man until the summer.

    Man Utd are understood to be working on a compensation package that would convince Besiktas to end Weghorst’s loan in the January window.
