The transfer window will take a week to close and Manchester United shouldn’t be closed to adding more players.
Tom Heaton, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane have all joined, although none of them have started a Premier League game so far, two games in.
While we certainly don’t see the late-stage recovery picking up like last year, there are a few steps United could take.
Here’s a look at four players United could sign before the deadline …

At the moment, United appear satisfied with Diogo Dalot as backup of Aaron Wan-Bissaka as right-back. But that could change.
Kieran Trippier is a superior player, is more experienced and could be more competitive in this position.
If there is a chance United hitting a late deal, it could happen. Trippier could even sign too late on the deadline, there would be no issues with visas or paperwork holding up the Varane deal.
The Telegraph has reported that Trippier wants to return to the UK and was ready to await a move to United. This step could accelerate quickly.

Contrary to the quickly denied ties between United and Aurelien Tchouameni, there has been no rebuttal of reports linking United with Ruben Neves.
Neves has Premier League experience and Wolves are ready to cash in at the right price.
The midfielder can expand United’s midfield in either phase of the game.
ESPN reported in late July that United had spoken to Neves officials.

The French youngster Eduardo Camavinga seems to be finished in Rennes.
Camavinga’s contract expires next summer and Rennes doesn’t want to lose him on a free transfer.
L’Equipe report that Camavinga played his last game for the club, although his next goal is unclear.
The Guardian reported last month that United are interested in Camavinga but may prefer to wait for a move to PSG or Real Madrid.

United are linked to Saul Niguez every summer, will 2021 be the season when a move will finally be made?
The Guardian report United have keen interest in signing Saul on loan as he has fallen out of favor with Atletico.
At 26, Saul’s best years could still be ahead of him and he would add real depth to United midfield.
A loan deal could be too good for United to turn down for a player who has been out of reach for the past few summers.
