Manchester United were seemingly headed towards a great transfer window as they completed the early signings of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The Red Devils were in talks with several other players too but only ended up signing Harry Maguire, leading the United fans to vent their anger on social media.
Manchester United were far from happy as their dream transfer window turned into a disappointment late on. The Red Devils moved quickly to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James, before a drawn-out saga saw them pay a world-record fee for Harry Maguire.
Meanwhile, several players were linked with a move to Old Trafford close to the deadline day, including the likes of Paulo Dybala and Bruno Fernandes. Ultimately, however, an agreement for them could not be reached, leaving the Red Devils’ fans fuming.
As a consequence, they started trending #Woodwardout on Twitter, calling for the sacking of the club’s vice-chairman.
“If you’re in charge of the worlds biggest football club and haven’t come close to a league title in your 6 year time in charge. You have to look at yourself and admit you can’t do your job” #WoodwardOut pic.twitter.com/X3HWtyVgMe

6 years 'rebuilding'
4 different managers
Further away from top spot then ever
No plan in place to push the club on
Hung Jose out to dry
Hanging Ole out to dry.
Not a care for the fans.
Only a care for sponsors.

Ed Deadwood :
Player's we need : Bid Less.
Player's we don't need : Go all out.
Player's who want to come to United : Never bids
Player's who dont want to come : Go all out
Player's who suck : New expensive contract
Player's who are good : let go for free.#MUFC #WoodwardOut pic.twitter.com/XVOzZzxkVJ

Meanwhile, Manchester United are unlikely to sign any more player during the last five hours of the window. As a result, they will welcome Chelsea with just the three new faces in the squad, when the two play on the opening weekend of the 2019/20 Premier League season.
