With Erik ten Hag at the helm of things, Manchester United has been on a winning spree this season. Erik’s reign has started excellently here as the team has claimed a 14th home win recently. There is an upcoming Leeds United game, a team that is currently without a manager. Hence, here too Manchester United is coming in as a favorite. They hope to gain points that will put them on a level with Manchester City. Indeed, United has been performing well, even better than forecasts under Erik. They slumped home to the sixth position last season. But now Ten Hag has big improvements in his plans and hopes to get the team to close gaps on top sides.
It is hoped that United will also be eligible to play in the Champions League if they continue with their current performance levels. It will also create a greater appeal among international talents for the team when the summer signings come up. They have spent modestly during the January transfer window and hence, they can afford to go big to strengthen the squad further. It is reported that they would be looking at big-money arrivals. Among them would be a striker from the big leagues, a midfielder, and a right-back player.
To generate funds for the forthcoming summer signings the club is looking to sell six big star players. One of them is Anthony Martial who has been with the club since 2015. It appears that Ten Hag has moved him down in the order of things after he has taken over. Also, players such as Marcus Rashford, Anthony Elanga, Jadon Sancho, and Hag can part with Martial and look at offers for him this summer. United is also pursuing a striker for the central position which will consolidate Martial’s position.
