Ghana have been busy as they prepare for their fourth appearance at a World Cup and a first appearance since Brazil 2014.
Since they secured their qualification for Qatar, they have been working behind the scenes to try and recruit more players to represent the country in the tournament.
A total of six players have been announced to have switched their international allegiance.
And fans were quick to jump on the fact that they have made more signings than United, who have only made one.

A fan tweeted: “No way Ghana have made more signings than Man United.”
Another fan was not happy with the comparison: “Chelsea have made 0 signings Man Utd have made 2 and we’re still the ones laughed at. We are massive.”
