It’s no doubt that plenty are wondering why Manchester United haven’t done much transfer business in this window when it seems to be needed.
The club is suffering from injuries at the back with Marcos Rojo, Antonion Valencia and Luke Shaw with long-term injuries.
At the same time, the club is also lacking creativity in attack alongside lack of pace.
[Mirror] Are reporting that the reason behind this is the fact that the Manchester United board have banned the Dutchman from doing transfer business due to his future being uncertain at the club.
It’s also been reported that Lazio were willing to do business for Felipe Anderson but Man United paused the negotiations until the manager’s future is resolved.
If that is true then the transfers that ‘could’ happen this summer would be targets for the board and not the manager himself just like the Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera transfers were negotiated before Van Gaal took over and he only gave his approval over the deals.
