Man Utd fans furious at reason why Julian Brandt wasn't signed despite enquiry

Manchester United are in the market for new recruits and were keen on signing Julian Brandt from Bayer Leverkusen, according to The MEN. But the Red Devils missed out on landing the 23-year-old winger because they reportedly touched base with Leverkusen too late, enabling Dortmund to get in there ahead of them and sign Brandt for just 22million. Manchester United fans are understandably unhappy about this latest transfer update, as it once again shows other clubs doing business around the Red Devils. United were or

iginally linked with Brandts new Dortmund team-mate Jadon Sancho, but cooled their interest in him after missing out on Champions League football.
