Manchester United ought to be stuck with regard to their transfer business until the World Cup ends. But that may not interrupt their progress in those deals which they have been linked to for quite a while.
So far, only Diogo Dalot has been fully instated into the Old Trafford roster, while Fred has a few minor details pending with regard to his transfer, and the deal may extend till after the World Cup ends.
Another area wherein they will be quite busy is with regard to those players who aren’t currently in Russia with their nations. Further, departures are still a massive region that Jose Mourinho will have to look into if a squad reshuffle is in his plans.
And now, a massive update regarding a long-held departure maybe on the line.

The Turin newspaper has been earnest in its reporting of this particular saga, and on multiple occasions in the past weeks, has called it to be nearly done.
However, it would appear that Mourinho was keeping the deal on the leash, and was waiting on adequate arrivals to occur before sanctioning the departure of the Italian. As things stand, reports have been suggesting that the fee for the right-back is what is holding the deal in suspension.
Juventus have apparently deemed the €20 million that United are demanding for Darmian’s signature to be too high of a price, considering that he only has a year left on his contract, and that Mourinho doesn’t deploy him often.
Moreover, reports have also linked the Old Lady with attempting a move for Joao Cancelo, with the possibility of both players being signed also quite open.
All in all, United and Juventus may have to agree on a deal upwards of €12-15 million in their meeting before this saga can be put to bed.
