Transfers 2017-18: Unlike the last few seasons, Manchester United have had a very underwhelming summer transfer window to much of the frustration for Mourinho. They have only signed two players so far with Fred (£50m) and Diogo Dalot (£18m) to improve the squad.
Wage Bill 2018-19: Although United have signed big players over the last couple of seasons, their wage bill has been on the decrease as they slowly disposed off some big names like Rooney, Ibrahimovic and Schweinsteiger etc. Their 2017-18 wage bill was around £232 million and we can expect it to remain at the same levels considering their transfer business so far.
