Four areas where Erik ten Hag is looking to strengthen at Manchester United
An insight into Erik ten Hag’s summer transfer plans for Manchester United has been provided.
Erik ten Hag will take over at Manchester United next week. Ten Hag will remain in London after arriving by private jet on Wednesday after Ajax finish the season and he watched United’s final game of the season at Crystal Palace on Sunday from the stands.
The Dutchman will meet the players for the first time when he officially takes over on Monday.
For the first few months of his reign, Ten Hag will be tasked with no better task than aligning Manchester United’s fragmented, ego-filled squad.

Now, as mentioned above, an in-depth look at the areas Ten Hag is aiming to strengthen was made available this weekend.
The Telegraph reports that Ten Hag is keen for United to make their move as quickly as possible to allow time for new recruits to join the army.
They added that the recruitment of strikers and midfielders is a priority, but Ten Hag also wants a quality centre-back and a right-back, with the club expanding its offer for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Given that Manchester United will have only Cristiano Ronaldo and Anthony Martial as centre-back options next term – that is if Martial stays, which looks unlikely – the Red Devils are required to sign one another striker this summer.
A proper 6 is also essential for at least the two most recent campaigns. If one does not arrive this summer, whoever walks through the door at Old Trafford will be seen by fans as another failed summer.
