Erik Ten Hag’s first season as a Man United manager was quite successful with the team winning its first trophy (the EFL Cup) since 2017. The Red Devils will participate again in the Champions League after finishing in the top four of the Premier League.
But what the future holds for the Glazers and the fans? Despite some great performances, the roster needs improvement, meaning that there will be money well in the summer transfer window. Man United is already in a transformative period, as the bosses are ready to sell the club for the great amount of nearly £7 billion. They decided to leave behind £500 million for head coach Erik Ten Hag to invest in new players.
Bolstering the team’s option means that there are some new, but also many well-known targets. In the second category belongs Freddie de Jong, a top midfielder whom they had previously tried to acquire last summer, when he decided not to leave Spain and Barcelona. Man United would have to spend over £80 million to seal the deal, as he is one of the most prolific players in Xavi’s roster, always providing for his teammates.
Ronald Araujo transformed into one of the best defenders in the world under Xavi, making the fee that Barcelona paid to Boston River back in 2019 look like a pittance these days. His value has already reached the top level in the transfer market, as Barcelona could ask for almost 100 million pounds. The Uruguayan could walk for nothing in the summer because his new contract with Barca is still not being arranged, United reportedly hope to sign him for free.
All these speculations mean that there will be a busy summer for the club. Man United has the chance to lure some of the best players in the world, adding some valuable pieces to what Ten Hag has in mind for a proper team.
