The Red Devils endured a woeful transfer window, with a number of big name players opting to reject moves to Old Trafford.
David Moyes left it late to secure his only major signing of the summer, forcing through a late deal for Marouane Fellaini.
United also made a deadline day move for Turan, meeting his £20m buyout clause.
However, complications surrounding finalising a deal scuppered the transfer.
The 26-year-old has been a key part of the Spaniards’ first-team for some time, and helped them to Copa del Rey victory last season.
He has also been linked with Liverpool in recent times, with speculation suggesting that a move away from Madrid could be a possibility.
United were also unsuccessful with a move for Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrera, but could return with a fresh offer in January.
Moyes was reluctant to meet his release clause – believed to be around £30m – ending the chances of a summer agreement.
But, the midfielder has confessed that he is keen to join the Premier League champions, opening the door for a future switch.
Manchester United fans, can Moyes right the wrongs of this summer in January?
