Manchester United officials are set to conduct a thorough internal inquest into their disastrous summer transfer dealings, Goal.com reports.
The likes of manager David Moyes and assistant vice-chairman Ed Woodward are set to review the club's dealings in the window in a bit to determine what exactly it was that went wrong.
Despite being linked with a number of high-profile purchases during the course of the close-season, United only managed one marquee signing. Marouane Fellaini was purchased from Everton for £27million to end a summer of speculation regarding his future, but even that was a very last-minute affair.
Failures to land targets including Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas, Leighton Baines and Anders Herrera have worried chief officials at Old Trafford enough to instigate a proper investigation into why things weren't as routine as they normally might be.
Along with Fellaini, who was signed with only five minutes to spare before the transfer window shut, 20-year-old Uruguayan Guillermo Varela was the only other arrival.
The Red Devils also tried to add Real Madrid's out-of-favour full-back Fabio Coentrao to their squad in a last-minute loan deal, but the paperwork failed to be registered before the deadline.
