Manchester United’s transfer window just got thrown into further disappointment, as Manchester City have completed their fifth and final signing of the season in form of Wolfsburg attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne. Despite interest from United, the Belgian has chosen to join Manchester City. City are understood to have beaten Manchester United in the race to sign Kevin De Bruyne for a club transfer fee of £56 million pounds.
Manchester City stand the most to gain from this transfer as the De Bruyne’s addition to City’s attack will spell doom for opposition defence. While Manchester United will be the biggest losers from this deal, as they have not only failed in landing their target but also allowed their rivals to strengthen themselves. The Red devils failure to snap up De Bruyne summarizes their last dealings in the transfer window.
Manchester United have failed to land their attacking targets ahead of the season despite needing re-enforcement in their attack. The Red Devils desperately needed someone of De Bruyne’s talents in slow and uninspiring attack after missing out on Pedro.
The Belgian could have been Louis Van Gaal’s marquee signing for the season hereby boosting the morale of the whole squad. With United losing out on De Bruyne and no one to turn to this late in the transfer window. The Red Devils have no option than to resort to what they have and hope for the best.
