United Ten Hag

Erik Ten Hag believes Manchester United needs more signings in the transfer window before the season begins next month. Ten Hag is pressurizing the United board into getting more signatures. United have signed 3 players so far including the likes of Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord, Christian Eriksen as a free agent, and Lisandro Martinez from Ajax.

So far only Malacia has been able to join the first team while Eriksen and Martinez has joined the team at Old Trafford. United are still on the run for Frenkie De Jong and have rekindled their interest in Ajax forward Antony.

Ten Hag on players coming in

Erik Ten Hag spoke ahead of the game against Aston Villa about the transfers coming in. Ten Hag still believes United needs a couple more signings to be competitive in the upcoming season.

“We signed Eriksen for the midfield department, so we are really happy with that,” Ten Hag told reporters. “And yes, I am really happy also with our performances of our midfield department and offensive department at this moment.

But I also know about this season – we talk about it in Bangkok and Melbourne – it’s a lot of games, the World Cup, so we need more options where you have a good team, and it’s not only about the team, you need a good squad to get the right results at the end of the season.

So we have to strengthen the squad even more and we are looking around but we also need the right players. There is a reason in a number of games you need more options in offence, clear. I think it’s vital if you want to get success, the season is really long but we still also have time to fill that in.

Back in Manchester Eriksen, Martinez will join in, we have more options, I think they can quite quickly integrate into the team.”
