Premier League giants Manchester United have lost the ability to do the dark arts of transfers according to journalist Andy Mitten.

According to Mitten, who’s the editor of United We Stand, Manchester United fans don’t have a lot of confidence in the present recruitment team led by Ed Woodward.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had earlier said in April that the club will take advantage of the Coronavirus Pandemic but that has not been the case as the Red Devils have struggled badly in the transfer market.

The club has made one major signing and that was the £38m transfer for Dutch player Donny Van De Beek.

Manchester United signed the 23-year-old from Ajax Amsterdam in the Dutch Eredivisie.

The club has been linked with a lot of other players especially Jadon Sancho but Borussia Dortmund have been difficult in the face of negotiations.

The Germans want £108m or nothing for the player.

Manchester United are also trying to sign FC Porto left-back Alex Telles but they have not reached an agreement with the Portuguese club despite the fact that the Brazilian has less than one year on his contract at the Estadio Dragao.

The Red Devils want to sign him for less money than his £27m valuation as per reports.
