Manchester United have run out of money after signing Donny van de Beek for £40million according to former Aston Villa and Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood.
Earlier this month United sealed a deal to sign Van de Beek for £40million from Ajax and he is expected to make his debut in Saturday’s season opener against Crystal Palace.
However, despite plenty of transfer speculation around them, United have been frustrated in their efforts to make further additions to the squad.
Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho has been top of United’s transfer wishlist this summer but the German club insist the 20-year-old will not be leaving.
This week, another United target Jack Grealish committed his future to Villa by signing a new long-term deal.
While Gareth Bale is set to complete a season-long loan move to Spurs after years of interest from United.

And Sherwood believes United’s failure to sign Grealish, Bale and Sancho is a clear signal that they have financial problems
“No Gareth Bale, no Jack Grealish, there’s no more money. There will be no Jadon Sancho that’s for sure.
“They’ve run out of money, otherwise it was a no-brainer, in my opinion, to take that boy [Grealish] to Manchester United.”
Meanwhile, former United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has hailed Van de Beek and compared him to Old Trafford great Paul Scholes.
