Rio Ferdinand “pleased” with Manchester United summer transfer window
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand is “pleased” with how the Red Devils’ have conducted themselves so far in the ongoing transfer window.
Mason Mount was our first addition to the squad this summer. The England international was signed from Chelsea for £55 million and will arguably provide competition to Christian Eriksen in the starting lineup.
Subsequently, we also acquired the services of Andre Onana from Inter Milan. The Cameroonian was a pivotal addition to the squad after David de Gea’s departure.
Now, the Old Trafford side are close to completing a move for Rasmus Hojlund. As per the Manchester Evening News, the Atalanta striker has completed his medical and will join the club for £72 million.
United have addressed a key position as they are set to get a hold of the Danis national’s signature. The Red Devils lack quality and depth in the number nine position, with injury-prone Anthony Martial the only option at Erik ten Hag’s disposal.
“What I’m really pleased about is the transfer window. It’s been decisive, it’s been efficient, they’ve been effective in that they’ve gone for particular players and they’ve got them.”
Apart from the additions to the team, United have also gotten rid of some of the stars who were surplus to requirements. Along with De Gea, Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe’s contract also expired at the end of June.
We have also sold the likes of Anthony Elanga to Nottingham Forest, Alex Telles to Al-Nassr and Zidane Iqbal to FC Utrecht. It remains to be seen who the next incomings and outgoings will be until deadline day.
