Manchester United refused to make any signings in January with no permanent manager in place
United named Ralf Rangnick as temporary manager following the firing of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November, but are yet to choose a permanent manager.
Given the uncertainty at Old Trafford, the club chose not to make any acquisitions last month, despite the fact that they had plenty of possibilities.
As a result, according to Italian transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, they turned down the chance to sign Julian Alvarez, Denis Zakaria, and Boubacar Kamara during the January transfer window.
Alvarez then signed a five-and-a-half-year contract with local rivals Manchester City, but the Premier League champions loaned him back to River Plate for the remainder of the season.
United have been in contact with Zakaria’s agency since December but decided against signing the Swiss international. He then moved on from Borussia Monchengladbach to Juventus.
Marseille midfielder Kamara was also a target at the conclusion of the transfer window, but United opted against it because they didn’t know if it would be a wise move given the uncertainty surrounding the managerial position at Old Trafford.
Man United stand in pole position at the moment with respect to hiring their top managerial transfer target.
