Although the transfer window doesn’t officially open until July 1 which means players can’t be registered, clubs are still free to complete agreements which can then be ratified when the window is open.
Manchester United have already been busy with deals. To help you keep track of them, here is our round-up of how the summer has gone so far.
It was refreshing to see United move swiftly in transfer window after two summers in which the club were very slow with their movements.
The next agreed deal was for 16-year-old Belgian goalkeeper Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui. He will join up with United’s U18s next season. The success of Timothy Fosu-Mensah who was signed as a 16-year-old from Ajax last summer bodes well for the academy and hopefully Moutha-Sebtaoui can have a similar amount of success.
Today, Manchester United announced Tom Cleverley will join Everton on a free transfer when the window opens on July 1. He becomes the first player to be sold this summer but will certainly not be the last.
A deal for 17-year-old French defender Dayot Upamecano looked to have been completed but it is still yet to be confirmed. That being said, announcement is expected soon.
As well as the deals discussed there are lots of rumours circulating including Morgan Schneiderlin, Ilkay Gundogan and Karim Benzema.
There is lots of activity still to happen at Old Trafford this summer and although fans would more than likely have wanted to see more movement early on, it should happen in the coming weeks.
