Incredible list of United’s missed targets!
Manchester United have come under some criticism for their transfer policy after a difficult end to the summer, and here’s a full list of their targets from the last few months that they ultimately failed to bring in…
1) Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)
Linked with a stunning return to Old Trafford, Cristiano Ronaldo was always an ambitious target after his amazing form for Real Madrid.
2) Gareth Bale (Real Madrid)
Long linked as a priority target for United, Gareth Bale has been kept on for at least one more season at the Bernabeu.
3) Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
Also wanted by Arsenal, United tried to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema to solve their issues up front.
4) Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
A world class centre-back, United looked close to signing Sergio Ramos, though he eventually decided to renew his contract with Madrid.
5) Raphael Varane (Real Madrid)
A fifth Real player United looked at, Raphael Varane was another option considered by Louis van Gaal to fix his defence.
