That Manchester United’s squad is in dire need of quality players is not in question. What is puzzling is United making enquiries about a host of players and not putting money on the table or rather not signing any. Many of us United fans had expected Bruno Fenandes to arrive by now given injuries to Scot and Paul, but there we go again. The Fernandes deal is stalled and about to collapse.

It’s a situation similar to Mikel Arteta and his plentiful supply of shaky centre-backs, but at least that only hurts the Gunners going one way. The base of Mourinho’s midfield is exposing his defence and suffocating his attack.
Nigel Pearson thought his Watford side created enough chances to win the game in a 0-0 draw against Tottenham.

The transfer market is full of cliches, particularly when it comes to the biggest deals. Inflation is a natural part of any business, and over time any product can and will grow more expensive. Footballers are no different, only the market is put under a much greater magnifying glass.
