Manchester United want five new signings plus slow transfer business explained

Erik ten Hag

United targeting five summer signings

New Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is targeting at least five signings before the transfer window closes.

The Streetot Media understands United are making progress in discussions over a fee for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, with the Catalan club insistent that De Jong be sold despite his preference to stay.

Ten Hag earmarked Jurrien Timber as his prime defensive target and wants to sign Timber’s Ajax teammate, Antony, as well as Christian Eriksen, out of contract at Brentford next week.

Why United have not made any signings yet

With 10 days remaining in June, United have still not bought or sold anyone. Liverpool, the benchmark for market manoeuvrings, have already concluded their business for incomings and are about to shift their sole significant outgoing in Sadio Mane.

United are not the only top-six Premier League club yet to strengthen their squad but after a “f—–g nightmare” of a season, in the words of chief executive Richard Arnold, their squad rebuild is not so much operating at a glacial pace as the glacier has not started to drift.

With no Champions League football to offer and no trophy since 2017, the club’s pull in the market is low and they are restricted to more specific profiles to target.
