After agreeing a deal in principle to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, and with the Manchester side seemingly closing in on a move for Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane, it looks as though the club are really aiming high with their ambitions.
Manchester United supporters have been extremely impressed by the work done by football director John Murtough and his recruitment team:

Of course, it should be pointed out that only one of those three deals have been finalised so it’s probably wise to reserve judgement on United’s business until later in the transfer window.
Even so, it does appear that the Red Devils are making much better progress in terms of signings than they have done in previous years.
