January transfer roundup at Manchester United

Discover the ins and outs of Manchester United's January transfer window, including departures and loan deals.

It has been a fairly quiet window for Premier League clubs in general this January.

For Manchester United, this was a similiar and expected theme in the middle of a transitional period of INEOS management taking over, an impending back room overhaul and the Red Devils not having adequate funds to do business amongst Financial Fair Play regulations.

Here, we have a lowdown of what went down this January and all the latest from Deadline Day:

There were no incomings unlike last January, when Marcel Sabitzer and Wout Weghorst arrived on loan.

The most prominent departure was Jadon Sancho, who returned to his former club on loan with no option to buy.

Sergio Reguilon’s loan deal was cut short, but his return to Tottenham was a brief one as he joined Brentford on loan for the second half of the season.

Donny Van de Beek joined Bundesliga side Frankfurt on loan with an option to buy.

Facundo Pellistri headed back to Spain once more as he joined relegation strugglers Granada on loan.

Hannibal Mejbri joined another candidate for relegation, as Sevilla courted him to Andalusia on a loan basis. Whilst he was expected not to be selected for an altercation, he is already back in contention for the side. Mateo Mejia, who never made a competitive appearance for the club, also joined Sevilla but on a permanent basis.

In the academy, it has been a fairly busy January. Alvaro Fernandez joined Portuguese side Benfica on loan with an option to buy for €6million. Academy quintet Radek Vitek, Dan Gore, Joe Hugill, Maxi Oyedele and Rhys Bennett have all left on loan.

On Deadline Day, highly rated prospect Isak Hansen-Aaroen left the club permanently as he joined Werder Bremen. United had hoped to keep him at the club, but did not cave into his wage demands so cashed in before his contract expired in the summer.
