Erik ten Hag looks set to completely overhaul Manchester United’s squad this summer with a spending spree, partly financed by several players being show the Old Trafford exit door.
According to several reports the soon to be appointed United Head Coach, will oversee an exodus at the club and the signing of a host of new players as the Reds look to rebuild following a disappointing campaign.
United are set to lose several out of contract players in the summer, with potentially, Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata all coming to the end of their deals. There’s also the possibility that Anthony Martial, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Dean Henderson also end up leaving too.
With the Reds linked with several strikers, defenders and midfielders, it’s likely Ten Hag sees many of the players who leave replaced.
The Mail reports:
Up to 10 players are expected to leave Old Trafford including striker Edinson Cavani, midfielder Paul Pogba and goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
It will leave plenty of scope for the Dutchman, but failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League could reduce their targets and budget.
The report then goes on to note:
With a replacement needed for Edinson Cavani — and possibly Cristiano Ronaldo — it is thought United could make a move for Tottenham’s Harry Kane or Darwin Nunez of Benfica.
The midfield options are believed to include Declan Rice (West Ham), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds), Ruben Neves (Wolves), Yves Bissouma (Brighton), Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio) and Aurelien Tchouameni (Monaco).
It looks like there could be a very big summer on the horizon for United, but with Manchester City and Liverpool both flying high at the minute, it’s going to take more than one transfer window for Ten Hag to close the gap that’s been widening all season.
