Manchester United rounded off an expensive summer transfer window with the signing of Antony from Ajax as Erik ten Hag finally got his top forward target, although there could have been even more money spent on another day.
United were linked with Napoli striker Victor Osimhen this summer but the Serie A club were only willing to sanction a move on two very specific conditions, which may hint at a future deal.

Napoli’s Osimhen conditions revealed
Osimhen grabbed plenty of headlines in Italy last season following his blistering goalscoring form in Serie A for Napoli and plenty of reports have linked the Red Devils to signing the Nigerian international as a result.
However, Napoli responded to rumours linking Osimhen with a move to Old Trafford ahead of deadline day by insisting that they would only sanction a move on two conditions, as revealed by the Italian press, via Manchester Evening News.
Should United want to secure Osimhen on a loan deal, then they would have to make a move permanent next summer for €100m (£86m),
whilst also sending Cristiano Ronaldo the other way. However, with the transfer window now shut, it could be one to resurface again next year.
United are “dream club” for defender
United were linked with plenty of defenders this summer, even after signing Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez, but one man has effectively offered himself to the Red Devils ahead of a potential future move in a recent interview.
Red Bull Salzburg defender Maximilian Wöber has admitted his dream club is United, and when asked about a possible reunion with his former manager at Old Trafford, following their time together at Ajax, he admitted he would be more than open to it.
Speaking to Sky Sport Austria, Wober said: “Since Manchester United is my absolute dream club, I would definitely say ‘yes’ there, but it won’t play out. There has been no contact.”
