Man Utd’s surprise signings with Frenkie de Jong and Antony transfers tricky to broker

Yet the arrival of Radamel Falcao wasn’t remotely expected, with the Colombia international moving from Monaco on loan on a dramatic transfer deadline day.

The following year, it was a similar story.

United’s interest in Sergio Romero, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Matteo Darmian, Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin was all common knowledge.

But, with Anthony Martial, it was a different case.

United needed a striker to replace Falcao and Robin van Persie, who had been allowed to join Fenerbahce.

So the France international, with very little fuss, touched down from Monaco in a blockbuster £36m deal.
