Erik ten Hag drops major Manchester United hint for January transfer window



| Last Updated:


Erik ten Hag is aiming to turn Manchester United’s fortunes around following an uninspiring start to his second season in charge at Old Trafford.

The Reds have stumbled into the 2023/24 campaign and are looking likley to exit the Champions League at the group stage.

Whilst performances have lacked in the Premier League, the Old Trafford side are in a decent league position, just three points outside of the top four.

Yet, they must begin to replicate displays like the one against Chelsea on a consistent basis if they are to move into those top positions in the division.

In order to do that, further transfers are needed and there were suggestions that United could make moves in the January transfer window.

However, when asked by the United We Stand fanzine if the club will be bringing in any new players next month, Ten Hag played down the prospect.

“I don’t think so,” he stated. “And if so, the approach from United should be that if you can improve your team, then you should do. What we expect from every player coming to Carrington every day is for them to give their maximum, to give their best.

“As a club, you have to look for improvements, so if you can find better and it’s realistic financially and with financial fair play, I think the club has to go with it.

“But realistically, in relation to the market, most of the time you don’t attract the best players in the winter. The top, top players will not leave their clubs in the winter. It’s players who are disappointed, injured or just not the right fit or whatever.”
