This summer’s English football transfer window saw more last-minute signings than any other I can remember, and not only were there lots of players switching clubs, but many of them were big names too. Manchester United were the busiest of the lot, bringing in a whole host of players to help re-build a flagging squad with the hope of an immediate return to European competition. Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo had barely had time to unpack their suitcases before they were joined at the club by Dutchman Daley Blind and Colombian striker Radamel Falcao.
