Luke Shaw has called for Manchester United to make more signings before the transfer deadline.

United finished third last season but have only signed one player this summer.

The Red Devils lost the season opener 3-1 to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Shaw was quoted by Sky Sports: “We have a very good group but, personally, I think we need more players to strengthen the squad.

“It can give us a boost. When you look around at how other teams are strengthening their teams, then we must also do it to keep up with the others.”

Players fed up?

Manchester United fans are sick of the lack of transfer movement from the club this summer.


This has now seemingly translated to the players, who will be feeling demoralised after a poor start to the campaign.

It is good to see Shaw speaking up, and he is unlikely to be the only player feeling this way.

He is doing so even though he is at risk of being one of the players replaced, with United linked with a move for Porto’s Alex Telles, reports The Mirror.

While United should have been able to beat Crystal Palace on Saturday, the team fell short, with weaknesses glaring all over the pitch.

The one new signing United did make was Donny van de Beek, who came off the bench to score in the 3-1 defeat.
