Yet another week has passed without any concrete activity in the transfer market from Manchester United.
Despite rumours suggesting deals for Luke Shaw and Toni Kroos could be completed before the World Cup started, there has been no confirmation that a signing of any nature is even close to completion.
With Louis Van Gaal yet to fully take on the managerial role at Old Trafford, it begs the question that any activity whatsoever will be concluded before mid-July at the very earliest.
Despite nothing being confirmed, rumours still circulate on a daily basis which have ultimated left United fans disappointed and this time, reports from Italy link United with a deal for 24-year-old Dutch defender Daryl Janmaat.
La Repubblica confirms interest in Janmaat from Rafa Benitez’ Napoli but suggests Van Gaal would very much like to bring the Feyenoord man to United after the World Cup.
Janmaat, who can play in defence or midfield, has made over 60 appearances for Feyenoord and would follow a long list of Dutch internationals to move to the Premier League.
With Van Gaal about to lead his Holland side into a World Cup campaign, it would come as no surprise if one or two more players from within his squad are in the Old Trafford dressing room come July.
Janmaat joins Bruno Martins Indi, Daley Blind and Jordy Clasie on the list of potential Dutch signings so far this summer.
