Bad news for Manchester United: Unfavourable finances could lead to a quiet summer for Red Devils

Though there is still a great amount of work to be done on United’s squad, there doesn’t appear to be a great deal of money available to spend in the transfer market.

Clubs are likely to have all been negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic, so you may find that penny-pinching will be the norm over the next 12 months or so.

However, United fans must feel as though they have closed the gap on the top of the Premier League to such an extent where one final push in the market would be entirely justified.

Manchester United have closed the gap on the top of the Premier League with Ole at the wheel.

This is not the time for the Glazers to tighten their belts, with United essentially one bad Manchester City season away from being crowned champions for the first time since 2013.

A centre-back, a midfielder and a striker are all absolute musts for the club this summer, and it would be unwise for them to cheap out when it comes to picking their acquisitions.
