Manchester United Are "Irritated" By Fans Begging For Summer Transfers
Manchester United chiefs are reportedly "irritated" with fans begging for transfer activity on social media - with calls for new signings "causing negativity."
United have only added Donny van de Beek to their squad this summer after coming third in the Premier League last season.
A move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has been rumoured throughout the window but negotiations are at a standstill.
ESPN have reported the Red Devils are becoming concerned with the frenzy surrounding buying players after a huge 24 hours in the market.
Tottenham Hotspur are set to confirm the double signing of Real Madrid's Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale in the coming days and both players were linked to United in the summer.
Rumours indicated United were interested in the pair but the club's hierarchy have denied that is the case.
Any deal for Reguilon would have included a buyback clause while Bale was seen as an alternative if a move for Sancho falls through.
But that hasn't stopped fans venting their frustrations online and bombarding official social media channels with messages about signings.
