Manchester United star Alexis Sanches is among those to have been left disappointed by a lack of transfer activity at Old Trafford during a quiet summer window
Alexis Sanchez admits he was hoping for “more world-class players” to arrive at Manchester United as Jose Mourinho faces up to a frustrating deadline day.
With only Diogo Dalot, Lee Grant and Fred acquired to this point, Sanchez has revealed that he was looking for more ambition to be shown in the transfer market.
The Chilean Forward said. "I would have liked that they had signed many more world-class players. "But it's the club's decision."
While disappointed by a lack of movement, Sanchez is happy to have been joined by fellow South American Fred.
The Brazil international was snapped up in a £52.5 million ($70m) deal and has impressed during his pre-season outings.
More is expected from him when season starts, with United readying to open the new Premier League campaign against Leicester on Friday, with the 25-year-old midfielder being tipped to prove a shrewd addition.
Sanchez added: "The truth is that [Fred] impressed me a lot in his first game.
It's what the team lacked - someone who plays ‘jogo bonito’, as they say in Brazil. And Andreas Pereira too. I think they are two players who have quality and they could help me a lot."
Sanchez is looking for somebody to provide him with greater ammunition during the 2018-19 campaign.
