Manchester United have made just one signing so far this summer, bringing in Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek for £40million.
According to former Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood, United have obviously “run out of money” this summer following Jack Grealish’s contract extension.
Grealish had been linked with a move to Old Trafford before putting pen to paper on a new five-year deal at Villa Park.
The Red Devils top target remains Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, though the £108m asking price is proving a problem.
Sherwood says there is no chance of Sancho joining this summer and cannot see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side making any other signings.
“Jack Grealish’s contract is great news for Aston Villa, what a signing that is,” Sherwood told talkSPORT.
“I thought he was nailed on to go to Manchester United, but it’s quite clear after the Van de Beek deal they’ve run out of money.
“No Gareth Bale, no Jack Grealish, there’s no more money. There will be no Jadon Sancho that’s for sure.
“They’ve run out of money, otherwise it was a no-brainer in my opinion to take that boy [Grealish] to Manchester United.”
