Manchester United signed only three players in the transfer window.

The summer transfer window has not been good hunting for Manchester United. They could manage to sign only three players who can’t be termed as world-class, at least as per Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez also feels the team should have signed more world-class players ahead of the new season which begins on Friday.

Manchester United signed only three players in the summer transfer window.

When Sanchez arrived at Old Trafford, his arrival was considered to be a huge boost for Jose Mourinho’s side. However, Chile forward still hasn’t lived up to his expectations.

United signed only Diogo Dalot, Lee Grant and Fred. Before the deadline, Mourinho was looking to sign a defender. Jerome Boateng, Yerry Mina were one of the top targets.

However, in the end, they failed to pull off a deal. Jerome Boateng rejected the offer while Mina signed for another English club, Everton. Sanchez told ESPN Brazil,

“I would have liked that they had signed many more world-class players. But it’s the club’s decision.”

However, Alexis Sanchez said United’s new signing Fred has already impressed him.

“The truth is that [Fred] impressed me a lot in his first game.”

Sanchez is looking for somebody to provide him with greater passes during the 2018-19 campaign.

“Today I am more comfortable. I am calm. My team-mates have to be focused. I also have to. I depend on them. If they are well, me too. It’s [improving] positively, it goes better. I think it will be seen now in the games when we play with Paul [Pogba], with Fred with [Romelu] Lukaku and with all the rest who are playing. We will understand better which is the best way [to get the most out of the team].”

Alexis Sanchez only managed to score three goals so far in his 18 appearances for Manchester United.
