The Red Devils have signed just one player for their first team this summer. Dutchman Donny Van De Beek is the only major arrival at Old Trafford in this transfer window and he netted in his first game.
Donny Van Der Beek scored the only goal for Manchester United as they started their Premier League campaign with a 3-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace.
On Alex Telles, FC Porto initially slammed a £27m transfer fee on him but that has been reduced to £17m on the back of negotiations with Manchester United.
