Erik ten Hag has conceded that Man United are unlikely to make any January additions.
Man United boss Erik ten Hag gives a hint on club’s transfer plans in the January transfer window. He has admitted that it is unlikely the club will be making any signings during the winter transfer window.
The 20-time Premier League winners lost 10 of their 21 matches across all competitions this season before beating Chelsea 2-1 in the previous game. They moved to 6th in the top-flight table.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe may take shares at Man United as the British billionaire will set to purchase 25% of the club.
The Dutchman has conceded that Man United are unlikely to make any addition in winter due to the difficulty of signing the right players in the middle of a season.
Ten Hag spoke to the United We Stand fanzine, as reported by Andy Mitten for The Athletic, “I don’t think so – and if so, the approach from United should be that if you can improve your team, then you should do. What we expect from every player coming to Carrington every day is for them to give their maximum, to give their best.
“As a club, you have to look for improvements, so if you can find better and it’s realistic financially and with financial fair play, I think the club has to go with it. But realistically, in relation to the market, most of the time you don’t attract the best players in the winter.
“The top, top players will not leave their clubs in the winter. It’s players who are disappointed, injured or just not the right fit or whatever.
“We have to develop and progress this team. In reality, we go to the next summer window and there will be new players coming in.”
