In order to continue the club’s new hire spree, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has highlighted three areas of his team that he wants to boost this summer.
On Sunday, Newcastle United defeated Manchester United, moving the Magpies above Ten Hag’s group and into third place in the standings.
With only one point in their past nine games, United’s chances of finishing in the top four are suddenly in jeopardy.
By winning the Europa League, they may advance to the Champions League, and United must qualify to attract their top targets.
To refresh his team, Ten Hag seeks a top-tier centre striker, a talented midfielder, and a new right back.
United’s top attacking target is Harry Kane, 29, but Spurs want more than £100 million for the England captain, and Daniel Levy is known for being a tough negotiator. However, Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen is a different target and, at five years younger than Kane, may provide greater value.
Although Dutchman Frenkie de Jong has made it plain he is content at Barcelona, he is also the midfielder United would most like to sign.
Jude Bellingham is another excellent target, but Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Liverpool are also vying for the Englishman, who has an excitingly bright future ahead of him, as he’s only 19 years old.
Due to the full-back’s injury struggles at the beginning of the year, Diogo Dalot’s performance has suffered. Given Dalot’s performance, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has seen a surprising reversal at the club and may now be the first choice.
However, the Athletic reports that United would think about selling the former Crystal Palace star to pursue a right-back who is more attack-minded.
