Fans’ view: Did Manchester United have a successful transfer window?

by Ben Topliss

The dust has settled and Manchester United supporters finally know how the squad will shape up ahead of a tough campaign.

Man United brought in Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Matteo Darmian and Sergio Romero earlier on this summer.

They kept David de Gea, although that was down to an administrative error rather than any kind of resolve, and they signed 19-year-old forward Anthony Martial on deadline day.

Louis van Gaal also removed a lot of deadwood in the form of players such as Tom Cleverley and Nani. We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on whether United had a successful transfer window:

Van Gaal has been backed in the transfer market and he must now deliver the goods.

The current squad is full of his players and there can be no excuses when it comes to the personnel at his disposal. Perhaps the biggest concern is that there isn’t too much strength in depth but the hope is that youngsters such as Andreas Pereira can make the step up.
