While Friday's news was dominated by Manchester United signing Luke Shaw the day after completing the transfer of Ander Herrera, one former Old Trafford employee was eyeing up a new role.
According to Liam Prenderville of the Daily Mirror, former United manager David Moyes has been in discussions with Galatasaray over the possibility of succeeding Roberto Mancini at the Turkish club.
Prenderville cites the Press Association as reporting that Moyes and the Istanbul side had an "exchange over ideas" in talks on Friday.
Moyes' reputation suffered a fearful battering last season after taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson at United.
United missed out on the Champions League and European football altogether after Moyes was axed from his role in April following, ironically, a defeat to his former club Everton at Goodison Park.
His eight-month reign at Old Trafford had been a catalogue of embarrassment, from the failure in the summer transfer window a year ago through to some fans hiring a plane to pass over the ground with a banner proclaiming: "Moyes Out."
The former Celtic defender had been a rising star in management before his switch to United after successful spells with Preston North End and Everton.
But his career lies in tatters following his time at United.
Therefore, Galatasaray could be the ideal place for Moyes to rebuild his managerial career.
Gala missed out on a third successive Super Lig title last season as Fenerbahce claimed the Turkish championship, but Moyes would still be moving back into the Champions League if he were to succeed Roberto Mancini.
That in itself should be reason enough to be tempted by the opportunity, with Gala entering UEFA's elite tournament at the group stage at the expense of Fenerbahce, who are serving a ban from European competition, as BBC Sport reported last year.
According to Prenderville's article, Moyes is not the first-choice candidate for Galatasaray, with a club spokesman reported as saying:
The president said that we just spoke with David Moyes and he said that he can come to Galatasaray, but he is not one of the main targets for us.
They just spoke to each other, exchanging ideas, that it is it. It is true the president talked with David Moyes.
We are not in a rush, we are waiting for the end of the World Cup. The first two targets are [Joachim] Low or [Jurgen] Klinsmann.
That seems a strange thing to say, especially with both German coaches still involved in the World Cup, but it could be a handy smokescreen.
Galatasaray would be foolish not to consider the virtues of Moyes and vice versa, with the Scot able to re-establish his credentials away from the glare of the Premier League.

This would be a good move for both parties. Moyes needs to distance himself from the Premier League for his next move before making a return after his ill-fated spell at Old Trafford.
And for Galatasaray, they would be getting a manager desperate to restore his pride and reputation.
