Erik ten Hag expects Manchester United to use the summer transfer window to strengthen his team. The Dutch manager is enjoying a good first season in charge at Old Trafford as he managed to end the club’s six-year trophy drought by winning the Carabao Cup. Next year United will be back in the Champions League again and Ten Hag hopes to strengthen his squad to keep competing.
When asked about the club’s transfer plans, Ten Hag said: “I think we need to strengthen the team and more positions. Also the depth in the squad. But don’t think about that in this moment. It’s not about that. So far, we have had a great season so keep going, keep improving, keep progressing and the team is doing so well and I think it is enjoyable to be part of this team. We have to keep it going. We have good players, a great team, a great year but it is only success if we keep going.”
At this point it is unclear if United will be able to spend money on the summer market as the club is in the middle of a possible take-over. Several parties have shown interest in the Premier League giants but no decisions have been made. While it is expected that the take-over will be completed before the summer, it could be possible that United’s budget will be limited in the summer transfer window.
