The free agents Manchester United can sign in summer transfer window

3 min read

The January transfer window is now closed, and clubs will be starting to plan for the summer.

It turned out to be a pretty quiet deadline day for Manchester United, with the only deal done seeing young defender Teden Mengi join Derby County on loan.

A number of other players headed out on loan during the window, including Jesse Lingard, Fecundo Pellistri, Tahith Chong and Ethan Laird.

Meanwhile, Timothy Fosu-Mensah left on a permanent basis to join Bayer Leverkusen, with Luca Ercolani and Max Haygarth also moving on.

There was one new signing as winger Amad Diallo completed his move from Italian club Atalanta.

Manchester United smashed nine goals past Southampton on Tuesday night as they bounced back from disappointing results against Sheffield United and Arsenal in emphatic fashion.

The game was effectively over as a contest inside the first two minutes as Southampton were reduced to 10 men, but United still had to find the goals and they did exactly that, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial (two), Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes and Daniel James all getting on the scoresheet.
