The big news of the day arrived from the blue half of Manchester as City announced the signing of Erling Haaland.

An hour down the road, Liverpool were making moves of their own as the club looked to complete their capture of Benfica forward Darwin Nunez.

Over at Old Trafford though, the atmosphere was far more sombre as instead of announcing a world class star, the best United fans could hope for was being linked with Aston Villa forward Danny Ings.

Don't know what's worse. That, or the fact Ings will most likely reject them.

There is still one reason to be somewhat optimistic for United fans heading into the new season - that being Cristiano Ronaldo.

While fans argue over Haaland vs Nunez, don't be surprised if 38-year-old Ronaldo spoils their welcoming party.

It feels like we've been a bit harsh on United, so let's have a look at something a little more positive. In truth, we should add more emphasis on the word 'little' considering the Red Devils are fighting for the signing of Frenkie De Jong, but still appear to be some way off.

Reading the post below, United will not only have to cough up a few extra million, but also sign another top European star if they are to get their hands on De Jong.

You know what, something tells me he doesn't fancy a move to Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, Arsenal have completed the signing of Marquinhos. Nope… not the guy from PSG.
