Manchester United are yet to make a single signing this summer while our rivals continue to add new players.
The window has been open since June 10 and our players return for pre-season this Monday.
So, with the clock ticking, can fans expect a new arrival possibly this week?
Well, the answer to that is yes – we can at least hope to reach a transfer agreement for Frenkie de Jong – before this weekend.
That’s according to reliable journalists like Fabrizio Romano and Samuel Luckhurst.
The latest media reports indicate United are close to an agreement with Barcelona after submitting an improved bid worth €80m plus add-ons.

In fact, both parties could confirm the transfer before Frenkie returns from his Las Vegas holiday before June ends.
Ten Hag developed the 25-year-old at Ajax and United desperately need a talented midfielder. As things stand, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard have left on free transfers.
Andreas Pereira could also join Fulham permanently, leaving a gap in the midfield.
De Jong could fill that void perfectly and adding Christian Eriksen to the set-up – hopefully – has the potential to work wonders.
With a transfer for Frenkie nearing completion, we hope to see progress in other deals as well.
