Manchester United are expected to finalise deals to sign Brazil winger Antony and Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka before tomorrow’s 11 pm transfer deadline.
A deal to sign the former has already been announced, with the club waiting for international clearance before it can be completed. Dubravka, who was also a target in last season’s January window, has undergone a medical.
Speaking ahead of Thursday evening’s visit to Leicester, Ten Hag confirmed that United are unlikely to sign any more player after wrapping up deals for Antony and Dubravka.
🗣 “For this window, that would be the end but when there is great opportunity, we have to be always alert.”

“I think so,” Ten Hag told Football Daily when asked if United will end their window after signing Antony and Dubravka. “That will be the end for this window. When there is a great opportunity, you have to be always alert as a top club,” he added.
Antony and Dubravka will take United’s tally of players signed to six and undoubtedly, Ten Hag will be delighted with adding several quality players to his squad.
United were never going to resolve all of their issues in one window but Ten Hag will feel that his squad is better now than what it was when he took charge of his first training session late in June.
