On October 4, 2019, Manchester United’s annual staff meeting was held at Old Trafford. Woodward took the stage to give a speech, trying to reassure everyone and promise that everything would be fine. Coincidentally, the day before the meeting, Solskjaer's team had just had an away 0-0 draw with the Eredivisie team Alkmaar in the Europa League. There was not a single shot in the game.
After the first 8 rounds of last season, Manchester United ranked 12th in the Premier League, but Woodward, the executive vice chairman of Manchester United, insisted that there was no reason to panic. He said: "We have expanded the transfer department, and now this department is operating efficiently and rewarding."
Soon after the meeting, Manchester United bragged about their new signing policy. They have an all-encompassing database and can use data and information from any supplier to help them choose their targets. Obviously, before Manchester United scouts and management decided that Wan Bisaka was the person they were looking for, they evaluated at least 804 right-backs, so they brought in the 21-year-old from Crystal Palace for £50 million. .
Manchester United admitted privately that signings have always been the "biggest problem" facing the club in the post-Ferguson era. The Premier League giants also did not deny that some of their acquisitions were wrong (Schneiderling, Schweinsteiger, Damian, etc. are all excellent examples of failed signings), but at that time they believed, The problem has obviously been resolved. Manchester United's future signings will target young and enterprising players. The best age is 23 years old.
One year and one day have passed since Woodward made this speech. A 33-year-old center who has not played a game since March arrived at the Manchester United training center and completed a medical examination. On the day Cavani flew to Manchester, the two enterprising English players Wan Bisaka and Maguire signed by Manchester United last summer performed in a 1-6 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. bad. As for all those who are pursuing young players, the fact that Manchester United cannot avoid is that three of the four strikers they recently signed are over 30. Ibrahimovic was 34 when he joined in 2016, Ighalo was 30 when he joined on loan in January, and Cavani, Manchester United's most recent emergency signing, will turn 34 in four months.
Manchester United will draw out the Uruguayan Paris Saint-Germain's high efficiency of 301 games and scored 200 goals to defend himself. They also believe that Cavani can also show strong influence outside the stadium like Ibrahimovic.
It is indeed possible-but if Cavani is so good, why didn't Manchester United sign him when his contract expires on June 30? Or in January, when everyone knew he wanted to leave Paris Saint-Germain? It’s no secret that he was sold to clubs in Europe this summer. He could have joined Manchester United five weeks ago to train with his new teammates.
The situation is similar for Tres. The 27-year-old left-back moved from Porto for £15.4 million. Manchester United claim that they have been investigating Teles for 6 years, so why didn't they sign him in the summer, like the introduction of Van der Beek? The Red Devils youth team also has some exciting signings. For example, the 16-year-old Jurado came from Barcelona, and the 18-year-old Pelistri was also a good sign. Manchester United did not activate about 9 million pounds until the last minute. The buyout clause introduced the Uruguayan teenager from Penarol. In addition, they did not confirm their interest in Atlanta winger Amade Diallo Traore until the transfer deadline. Due to work permit issues, the 18-year-old winger will not be able to register until January next year.
特雷斯的情况与此类似。这位27岁的左后卫以1540万英镑的身价从波尔图转会而来。曼联声称他们已经对Teles进行了6年的调查，所以为什么他们在夏天不签约，例如引进Van der Beek？红魔青年队也有一些令人兴奋的签约。例如，16岁的Jurado来自巴塞罗那，而18岁的Pelistri也是一个好兆头。直到最后一刻，曼联才激活约900万磅。买断条款从佩纳罗尔介绍了这位乌拉圭少年。此外，直到转会截止日，他们才确认对亚特兰大边锋阿玛德·迪亚洛·特拉奥雷的兴趣。由于工作许可问题，这名18岁的边锋将无法在明年1月之前进行注册。
Ferguson used to ridicule the clubs that were crazy about signing in on the last day of the transfer market. Yesterday, after Woodward and Manchester United’s transfer negotiator Judge finally admitted that he failed to introduce Sancho, he launched a large-scale European-wide purchase for the purchase of a winger. Following the failed introduction of Bellingham and Harland, Sancho, an England international, became a new member of Judge's list of failed negotiations.
弗格森过去常常嘲笑那些在转会市场最后一天疯狂签约的俱乐部。昨天，伍德沃德和曼联的转会谈判代表法官最终承认未能引进桑乔之后，他发起了在欧洲范围内大规模收购边锋的交易。在贝灵汉和哈兰德（Bellingham and Harland）引入失败后，英格兰国脚桑乔（Sancho）成为法官失败谈判清单的新成员。
Manchester United revealed that the epidemic has dealt a serious blow to its financial situation, but they could have raised more money for the introduction of Sancho, instead of marking excessive prices for their fringe players. Roma hopes to buy out Smalling, who will turn 31 next month. Manchester United initially insisted on asking for 20 million pounds, but at the last moment, they accepted an offer of 13.6 million pounds down payment plus 4.6 million pounds in additional fees. Lingard has been on the verge of leaving the team, but his agent was told that they must find a new club that is willing to pay a high transfer fee for Lingard.
In short, Manchester United is like a sinking warship, desperately looking for new aid, in order to fill the loopholes in the ship, however, they still have not solved their biggest problem-the position of central defender. After the 1-6 defeat, people questioned Solskjaer’s ability, but after such a bad transfer window, everyone would sympathize with the situation of the Norwegian coach. A year ago, he was sitting in Old Trafford. In De's room, listen to Woodward's rhetoric. Now, the Manchester United coach’s bosses seem to have used their incompetence to push Suo Shuai into desperation.
