In the end United signed Casemiro and Antony but could have signed a number of other players.

Fabrizio Romano said on his YouTube channel that United were offered more than 15 players between August 15 and 21.

Among those names were Barcelona star Memphis Depay and Chelsea star Christian Pulisic.

Romano revealed that United had been offered Depay (28) for a free transfer from Barcelona, ​​while talks between United and Chelsea were taking place for Pulisic (23).

According to Romano, United made a loan offer for Pulisic but Chelsea had no intention of letting the American go unless it was a permanent transfer.

Napoli winger Hirving Lozano was also offered to the club as a potential solution to their winger problem, but United opted to look elsewhere.

Other players Romano claims United have been discussed or offered are: Moises Caicedo, Leandro Paredes, Weston McKennie, Yannick Carrasco, Sergino Dest and Thomas Meunier.

United spent much of their summer chasing a deal for Frenkie de Jong, to no avail.

But by the September 1 deadline, the club had signed six players.

While Antony got off to a good start on his debut, fellow newcomers Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez have all started with impressive performances.

However, Real Madrid legend Casemiro got off to a shaky start at Old Trafford, failing to dislodge Scott McTominay from midfield and seeing United lose to Real Sociedad on their full debut.
