Manchester United could hand Erik ten Hag a ‘transfer war chest’ to sign three Premier League players, as Trevor Sinclair has told the club to sell Jadon Sancho
Erik ten Hag is reportedly drawing up a list of targets from three Premier League rivals ahead of taking the Manchester United manager’s job this summer.
The Ajax boss is expected to take up the reins at Old Trafford at the end of the season, where he faces the monumental task of revitalising the Red Devils’ fortunes on the pitch. An overhaul of the playing squad is expected, and Ten Hag reportedly already knows the names of three players he wants the club to sign for him.
It means the United starting XI could look very different come next season. And former England international Trevor Sinclair has told United to sell Jadon Sancho this summer as he’s “not quick enough”.
Here are Mirror Football’s latest Manchester United headlines.
United told to sell Sancho
Manchester United have been told to cut their losses with Jadon Sancho as the winger “isn’t quick enough”.
The former Borussia Dortmund ace arrived at Old Trafford last summer in a £70million deal but has struggled to make an impact at the club. And according to former England international Trevor Sinclair, Sancho is struggling as he can’t “beat a player” as he’s “not quick enough”.
And the former Manchester City forward has told United chiefs they need to get their recruitment right if the next permanent boss at Old Trafford is to be successful.
Three players targeted
Erik ten Hag will reportedly target three stars from Premier League rivals once he begins his Manchester United rebuilding.
The Dutchman is set to arrive at Old Trafford this summer, with reports suggesting he will be handed a ‘transfer war chest’ to reshape the United playing squad. Ten Hag wants to add a striker and two ready-made midfielders accustomed to pressing when he arrives at the club at the end of the season.
How United could line up under Ten Hag
United’s starting XI could look very different under Erik ten Hag next season.
As well as the three players named above, speculation that Ten Hag is set to be appointed United manager has led to a number of names being linked with the club. Several players could follow the Dutchman from Ajax, with Jurrien Timber, Noussair Mazraoui and Antony reportedly of interest to United.
While a new striker and a number of other squad changes are also expected to drastically change United’s first-choice line-up.
