Manchester United have capped their transfer budget for Erik ten Hag at £120million, according to reports. And while the Dutchman would like three signings, it’s claimed he’s ready to accept just three.

The Red Devils have interest in Frenkie de Jong, while Lisandro Martinez and Antony have also been linked.

Having lost Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Lee Grant, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Edinson Cavani on free transfers, the Red Devils are determined to improve their squad.

They’re apparently ready to submit a second bid for De Jong, with Barcelona previously turning down their opening offer which was worth in the region of £52million.

And, now, the Mirror say the club are working on a maximum budget of £120m this summer.

Previously, the Red Devils have spent more than that. Especially under Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But with no Champions League football awaiting this term, given they finished sixth in the table under Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick last time out, they’re now hampered.

Ideally, Ten Hag would sign two full-backs, a centre-back, a defensive-midfielder, a creative midfielder and a striker.

But with funds tight, it’s claimed United are now accepting they have to prioritise certain areas of their squad.

And a centre-back, striker and midfielder are now the priorities for the Red Devils as they seek a significantly improved campaign next season.

 

United are said to be targeting ‘less high-profile players who are hungry for the chance to prove themselves’.

 

That’s in stark contrast to previous years, when they’ve gone for Galacticos such as Paul Pogba, Angel Di Maria, Alexis Sanchez and Radamel Falcao.

 

De Jong is their main target, though United and Barcelona are said to be £10m apart on their valuations for the midfielder.

United had been in the mix to recruit Darwin Nunez, admiring the striker who scored 34 goals across all competitions for Benfica last term.

Yet he’s now joined Liverpool instead after the Red Devils deemed his price tag to be too high.

United supremo Richard Arnold recently told fans at a local pub that the ‘money was there’ to be spent on new players.

But the club still seem to be operating on a tight budget and won’t overpay, something they’ve done far too willingly in the past.
