Man United Transfer Round-Up – All the Incomings and Outgoings in the January Transfer Window 21/22

The January transfer window heated up to the deadline day, as the window shut down last night. At Manchester United, however, the failure to sign new players continues to breed frustration amongst the fan base, with the club seeming completely uninterested in sanctioning sales and incomings in January.

Meanwhile, there has been some activity on the exit front, with three first-team players leaving on loan in January. Having already loaned out Anthony Martial and Amad Diallo until the end of the campaign, Donny van de Beek secured a deadline day loan move.

Given the team’s shortage of reliable options in the midfield department, the fan base was hoping for arrivals on deadline day. However, given United’s apathetic transfer history in resolving glaring issues on the pitch, it was almost certain that the club wouldn’t make a last-ditch effort.


Amad Diallo (Loan) – Rangers

Having scored on his debut for Rangers, Amad began life in the Scottish Premiership on a high last Saturday. Although numerous Championship clubs were said to be interested in securing his services, a move to Rangers is said to be beneficial for his development, given the potential of regular first-team minutes and physical growth to challenge for a first-team spot at United.

With the young Ivorian entering into a crucial stage of his career, Amad will be hoping to have a successful loan spell at Ibrox and return with high ambitions to United ahead of the beginning of the subsequent campaign.

Anthony Martial (Loan) – Sevilla

Following a barrage of diatribe, Anthony Martial secured a highly-coveted move to Sevilla earlier this week. The Frenchman looks to gain first-team minutes in hopes of returning to the national side ahead of the World Cup later this year.

Having already expressed his desire to leave Manchester United earlier this month, Martial was the foremost player expected to move elsewhere during the January transfer window. Now, on loan for six months at Sevilla, Martial will reportedly lead the attack and form a pivotal part of the team’s ambitions to continue their challenge for the La Liga title this season.

With United already stacked in the attacking department amidst hopes of academy players breaking through the ranks next season, it remains to be seen if the Frenchman returns to United or seeks a permanent move elsewhere in the summer, following the end of the ongoing campaign.

Donny Van De Beek (Loan) – Everton

After enduring a gruelling dip in his career following his move to Manchester, Donny Van De Beek received a late lifeline as he secured a move to Everton on deadline day for the rest of the season. The Toffees are said to have agreed to cover the player’s wages in full for the six-month loan spell, but the deal doesn’t include a permanent buy option.

Despite promises of first-team opportunities, the Dutchman has repeatedly been underutilized at Old Trafford under Solskjaer and Rangnick. The midfielder will be keen on reviving his career in the hopes of making the World Cup squad later this year.

Earlier, Crystal Palace were said to be the frontrunners in the race to land the Dutchman, but Everton displayed a late interest in the player following the appointment of Frank Lampard as the Toffees’ manager. Van de Beek mentioned Lampard as the driving force behind his choice to move to Goodison Park.

Others Linked

Besides these transfers, several others looked likely to secure a move away from Old Trafford. Among those, Dean Henderson was looking to secure a loan for regular first-team minutes. Ralf Rangnick’s reluctance to sanction the departure of his backup keeper blocked his move.

Newcastle were interested in securing the player’s services on loan in the January transfer window, but couldn’t reach an agreement with Manchester United. The German also blocked a deadline day move made by Watford for the English shot-stopper.

Another of United’s players linked with a move away, Phil Jones was strongly linked to Ligue 1 club Bordeaux. So much so that Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano reported both clubs have reached an agreement for the player and the decision rested on Jones.

The French club were very confident in convincing the player to move to France, but Jones rejected the move on the final day and decided to stay. The English defender remains keen on gaining first-team minutes at Old Trafford.

Newcastle also displayed a keen interest in Jesse Lingard throughout the January transfer window, the Englishman is set to remain at Manchester United after both clubs witnessed a breakdown in negotiations, with reports citing the Red Devils’ financial demands as the major obstacle.

Numerous players were linked with a move to Old Trafford in the January transfer window. The fans expected the club to look for a player to fix their midfield issues, but to no avail, as Manchester United couldn’t secure a single transfer.

United were supposedly frontrunners to acquire the services of Boubacar Kamara, with the club believed to make a move before deadline day. Denis Zakaria was another reported target for the Red Devils. Reports suggested that negotiations were progressing, but United’s sluggish efforts enabled Juventus to swoop in and sign the Swiss midfielder on deadline day.
