In that time, United have brought in some big-money players such as Kiko Casilla and loanees Jean-Kevin Augustin and Ben White, but it remains to be seen exactly where their money has been spent.

Meanwhile, Leeds are back in league action on Saturday where they will be looking to get their title charge back on track with a win over the Cottagers at Elland Road.

Should Marcelo Bielsa’s side secure a long-awaited return to the top-flight, that £4m will look like a mere drop in the ocean.
