Manchester United were linked with numerous young and established players during the transfer window but could only complete three signings before the window shut down.
Robert Lewandowski, Willian, Leon Goretzka were some of the top players linked with a move to the Theater of Dreams but none of them was captured by Ed Woodward.
Meanwhile, latest reports emanating from the former Premier League Champions claimed that Mourinho’s stunning offer for PSG youngster Kylian Mbappe was rejected by the Ligue 1 Champions.
The 19-year-old was a thorn in the flesh of many defenders during at the FIFA 2018 world cup in Russia as he creates and scores goals to help his country – France – to the world cup glory.
His displays for the Les Blues throughout the competition prompted Mourinho to make an offer for his signature but his bid was declined by Thomas Tuchel, who wants to build his team round the youngster.
According to the Mirror, Woodward travelled to the Parc des Princes stadium to discuss with PSG hierarchy over the possibility of getting the youngster but all his efforts to convince them were fruitless.
Despite joining PSG from Monaco in just a season, Mbappe’s future remains unclear as Real Madrid and other top European clubs are vying for his signature before their transfer window closes by the end of the month.
