Manchester United have not had the best of windows so far. Although they signed Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez, there are still some glaring issues in their team.
United need a defensive midfielder as a priority. Frenkie de Jong, who is his top target, is the subject of stalled discussions. Moreover, they have not signed any attackers despite the departures of Edinson Cavani, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, and potentially Cristiano Ronaldo.
The latest is that United have agreed on a fee for Adrien Rabiot. Football director Murtough met with the players’ representation in Turin. The club is also impeding Ten Hag’s attempts to move after Hakim Ziyech. From the outside, it appears that panic is starting to take hold at Old Trafford.
United must make further moves in the transfer window before the deadline. They have had two humiliating losses at the beginning of the season, indicating that little progress has been made despite some good results in the pre-season.
No matter how talented Ten Hag is as a coach, it will be difficult for this Manchester United team to be in the top four given the amount of competition this season. The Dutchman is aware that he can only be successful this season if he is given more transfers are made.
Ten Hag On The Transfers At United
The manager is depending on the club officials to negotiate and close the deals, but that isn’t happening right now. However, when asked if he was satisfied with how the window has gone so far, Ten Hag was positive.
I’m happy, I think we’re cooperating really well. I cannot tell about any individuals, I cannot talk about players under contract at other clubs. We have to. I am convinced we will have [a better squad].
It’s a task to ensure that this team would improve by the end of the window comes true by August 31. The humiliating loss to Brentford must have made the United hierarchy take notice and act faster. If by the time September rolls around, he still doesn’t have what he wants, it will be interesting to see how he goes on about the rest of the season.
