John Murtough has hinted that Manchester United won’t be busy in the January transfer window.
These players arrived as a part of Erik ten Hag’s plans to return the club to their former glory.
Their arrival came after the exits of Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani who all moved on at the end of their contracts.
With United going well in the Premier League, some fans would hope for the club to enter the transfer market as they push for Champions League qualification
But according to football director Murtough, they’re unlikely to replicate their summer spending.
Speaking at United’s September fans’ forum, said: “We brought in five regular first-team starters on permanent transfers and a high-quality back-up goalkeeper on loan.
“We ended the summer slightly ahead of where we expected to be in terms of the number of players brought in, so we don’t anticipate the same level of activity in future windows, although we will continue to strengthen.

“The next step was reshaping the squad and we worked closely with Erik throughout the summer to agree on who to bring in, and who we would allow to leave.
“As always, there was a lot of media noise and speculation to contend with but ultimately by the end of the window we were happy with where we ended up.”
