Over expenditure, Man United set to reduce in future transfer windows

With signings of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and many other additions to the English club, Manchester United are expecting to calm down their January transfer window and certainly do not want to repeat their record breaking 225 million pounds spend on the recent summer transfer window.

Under new boss, Erik ten Hag, the Red Devils have signed six new players, that too with five of them set for regular roles in the first-team squad.

Moreover, the club has paid Ajax a sum of 56 million pounds for Lisandro Martinez and signed Tyrell Malacia for 14.9 million pounds from Feyenoord. Recently, Brazil star and former Real Madrid player Casemiro also joined the club for an initial 60 million pounds.

Ten Hag has been pending to discuss on the matter with the club authorities during this international break, but football director John Murtough has already cautioned against seeking that kind of level of investment once again.

“During the summer, we made a significant investment in the first-team squad with the permanent addition of five regular starters, including a balance of experienced international players and younger, emerging talent,” said Murtough.

“Overall, we are ahead of schedule in our recruitment plans as envisaged at the start of the summer, and we do not anticipate the same level of activity in future windows. As always, our planning focuses on the summer window.” added the director.
