COVID-19: United working on transfers during football suspension

Nobody knows what affect the coronavirus will have on the transfer window yet, but Manchester United are still working on transfers despite football being suspended for the foreseeable future.

As discussed on our Patreon (£), we think several players tipped for mega money moves in the summer will be left disappointed. Even the biggest clubs could feel the pinch when it comes to big spending plans made prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even if it feels weird to be discuss transfers at this time, you will be pleased to read that United are still working on securing deals while the future of the football season remains in doubt.

The Premier League and other leagues have been put on hold due to the coronavirus crisis, and it is not clear yet when it will be safe to allow games resume.

According to the Manchester Evening News, United are still working to sign players, with Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish among our targets. That may be subject of change soon after allegations of a drink driving accident emerged.

Leicester City star James Maddison could be in line to take advantage of Grealish’s immature behaviour.

The MEN report that the club have been eager to try to get a deal done for Grealish early due to his valuation soaring, though that may be a concern for Villa more than anyone at this point, if they go down and look to cash in on their most prized asset.

United are using their time away from the pitch to ensure the transfer window is a success.

It will be interesting to see what happens with the remainder of the season and how that impacts the transfer market.
