Manchester United are definitely becoming a “summer transfer business only please” kind of club. Last January transfer window, they did not buy a single player. The January window before, the only player they brought in was Victor Valdes. According to the Daily Mail, they won’t be buying a player this month either.
Manchester United do not intend to bring Patrice Evra back to Old Trafford and are unlikely to make any new additions in January.
The 35-year-old Evra is a hugely popular figure around United with players and staff and is keen to finish his sparkling career with a return to Manchester.
However, Jose Mourinho is prepared to give Luke Shaw another chance to impress once he is fully fit. Mourinho had grown exasperated by Shaw and considers the player an all-too-frequent example of modern young players who have too much too soon.
Interesting about Shaw, you have to think that his number of chances could be running out soon. Sure, it’s not his fault that he’s been so ridiculously injury prone, but if you’re never on the field, no matter what the reason, eventually your team is going to give up on you and move on.
United apparently won’t be buying any new players this window (they did have the most expensive summer transfer window in history, to be fair), it doesn’t seem like they’ll be sending many off either.
Also it appears that Memphis Depay could be sticking around to the end of the season too (More on that here).
