The summer transfer window is once again unfolding in a way totally different from what Manchester United fans would have loved it to be as the Red Devils have still not concluded their first summer business. Over a year ago, United were reportedly in the hunt to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho, and even though they spent most of the last two summer transfer window negotiating with the German Bundesliga giants, they were still not able to seal the deal for the attacker.

This summer is set to see us witness summer transfer activities from some of the biggest clubs in the world, particularly because they know they have fallen short in the quest to dominate Europe.
