Barcelona were strongly with Depay and Garcia during the extended summer transfer window.

However, both men stayed at their respective clubs after Barcelona couldn't get rid of Dembele.

The La Liga giants had agreed a reported £22.5 million deal for Lyon's Dutch star who was ready to leave France for Spain.

Though his move to Barcelona relied on Dembele switching sides.

And the same goes for the Manchester City defender who intends to leave the Premier League club when his contract expires next summer.

Barcelona, though, completed the signings of Miralem Pjanic, Trincao, Sergino Dest and Matheus Fernandes earlier in the transfer window.

As for United, they snapped up four signings on deadline day.

Alex Telles arrived from Porto in a transfer worth £15 million while Amad Traore, who cost £37 million, will head to his new team in January.

Facundo Pellistri penned a deal at Old Trafford, too.
