Manchester United respond sternly to Erik ten Hag’s transfer window concern



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have seemingly responded to Erik ten Hag’s concerns surrounding the transfer window amid doubts about his future.

The fate of Erik ten Hag at Manchester United is still up in the air. The club has yet to determine whether he will remain as manager beyond this summer. Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOS team are conducting a “season review” of ten Hag’s performance, and no decision has been made so far.

As part of this evaluation, potential replacements are being assessed in case Ten Hag leaves. Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino, Roberto de Zerbi, and Gareth Southgate have among the names commonly suggested as possible successors, although the likelihood of these names being appointed has diminished.

United have not made much progress regarding transfers, with the club seemingly yet to take decisive action to secure any signings for the coming summer.

So far, the club have only confirmed that first-team players Raphaël Varane and Anthony Martial will depart when their contracts expire at the end of the month.

According to The Telegraph, Ten Hag is concerned that if United intend on keeping him, then the club is already in danger of falling behind in this summer’s transfer market, which will impact their prospects next season.

The report further explains that although Ten Hag met with INEOS before he went on holiday after the FA Cup final to discuss potential signings and sales—with a large number of players available for transfer—it is thought that no clear transfer plan was settled on.

However, The Guardian has now detailed United’s stern response to the worry that Ten Hag and club fans currently hold.

It is reported that United are still confident that they can have a successful transfer window despite the lack of clarity surrounding Ten Hag and his future.

This confidence comes from the structure Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOS team have implemented over the last six months.

Jason Wilcox is the club’s new technical director and has been leading the recruitment department while they wait for new football director Dan Ashworth to arrive, while Omar Berrada will start as the club’s new CEO next month.

United are said to feel that once Berrada arrives after his gardening leave with Manchester City expires, he “will further bolster their ability to operate in the window”. He is due to start on July 13th, six weeks before the transfer window shuts.
