The jury is out on Fred and Diogo Dalot early on into their Manchester United careers.
Elsewhere in the Premier League, there are bargains and big money instant hits who would have been shrewd signings.
Here is a look at three players who United should have been looking to buy.
Jorginho (Chelsea)United were linked to Jorginho over the past year but stood aside as Chelsea swooped in.
It is a disappointment because the former Napoli man has been key to helping the Blues become a force again under Maurizio Sarri.
Jorginho’s passing style is totally different to Nemanja Matic’s cumbersome approach and he could have transformed the team.
Some fans hope we have the same sort of player in Andreas Pereira. Jose Mourinho is still not ready to give him a chance.
David Brooks (Bournemouth)How refreshing would it be for United to raid the Championship for a top talent and take a chance.
Bournemouth did that to buy Brooks from Sheffield United and he looks like a bargain who will sell for big money in the future. Why can’t United get in there first?
The attacking midfielder has already scored twice in the Premier League and was dangerous against us at the weekend.
Brooks is a United fan too, which would only have been a positive.
Issa Diop (West Ham)We can’t ignore the team’s most pressing need, even if Ed Woodward did.
A new centre-back is still required at United and West Ham defender Issa Diop fits the bill.
He has already been praised by Jose Mourinho after the defeat at the London Stadium.
Diop is only 21 and cost around £22 million. Already he looks like he would have been an upgrade on Phil Jones.
