Manchester United's major summer signing of the 2018 January transfer window was Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, of course, but there was a second arrival at Old Trafford.
Teenager Matej Kovar joined from FC Slovacko following a successful trial, and did not require a work permit due to his EU status. The Czech Republic youth international competed for the gloves at Under-18 level and even made his Under-23s debut at Old Trafford in the draw with Everton. Kovar had a successful run of games in the youth team between February and the end of that season, which culminated in United winning the Under-18 Premier League North title. The young Czech was pushed into the Under-23s squad and made 19 appearances at that level, as well as keeping goal in the UEFA Youth League.
