Manchester United Transfer Talk: Alex Telles, Chris Smalling

chris smalling

Just a fortnight until the summer transfer window closes and Manchester United still have only one deal over the line. They’re a team that is depleted and in need of much more in the back line; no doubt. Both manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer and left back Luke Shaw have called to strengthen the squad.

Both of these men have said the lack of a preseason and time off has hurt the squad too. Although it’s worth noting that the other club in Manchester had a very similar situation, with their end to the 2019-20 season and off-season, and their opening day result was polar opposite of United’s.
