OMG, last day of the window for transfer!
Will there be a last min spree?
Ed Woodward’s absence from Manchester United’s pre-season tour for the first time in six years this summer was supposed to have given him the chance to negotiate the tighter transfer window, yet it was chaos as usual on Wednesday.
While agent Federico Pastorello was beating a path to the executive vice-chairman’s door at United’s offices on Stratton Street, Mayfair, seeking a move for his client Romelu Lukaku — who has been on strike all summer — another of the 11th-hour deals which have characterised Woodward’s £850million of spending in the past five years came to nothing.
Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen, the kind of playmaker the club badly needs, was simply not that convinced by the ambition or genuine interest of United, who had made no approach before Wednesday, according to the selling club.
Harry Maguire heard nothing from Woodward for weeks, despite a relationship with Mike Phelan, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s assistant, who knows him well. He arrived on Monday for £80m — precisely the figure Leicester City had been demanding all along.
Darren Fletcher was approached by Woodward, yet 10 weeks later had heard nothing more.
