Manchester United are set to reduce the number of players they purchase each summer, according to reports from the Daily Star.
Before the start of last season, United used over £150million on new players, while they were the second highest spenders in England with £110million during the past transfer window.
On deadline day, the Red Devils completed a £36million deal for Anthony Martial from Monaco, with the 19-year-old becoming the most expensive teenager in football history.
Ever since his arrival as manager, Louis van Gaal has spent a total of £260million, but United still struggled to finish fourth last season and haven’t started the current campaign brightly.
And now senior United sources are claiming that this trend will not continue, with the number of new players coming into the club set to be reduced in future transfer windows.
“We’re really happy (with the transfer window) to be honest. We brought in six players and kept David (De Gea), which we’re really pleased about,” they revealed.
“To get Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin, Memphis, Sergio Romero and Martial in is a good thing.
“But it’s more than we’re going to do in future windows, that’s for sure. Six players is a lot – it’s certainly more than the three or four we’ve done in previous windows.”
Van Gaal’s side will look to bounce back from their 2-1 loss to Swansea last weekend when they host Liverpool after the international break.
