United will shell out for a 'big name' because it'll look good to shareholders and share prices. They won't however pay what's necessary to build an actual quality squad.
Which is why beyond the likes of Pogba, Sancho, Maguire and Fernandes, the squad is littered with £15-20m bargain punts like Telles and Dalot or 35 year old strikers signed on a free.
