Erik ten Hag applies pressure on Jim Ratcliffe with Man Utd review affecting transfers – Mirror Online

A review is currently underway regarding the decision of whether Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS will continue with Ten Hag as the manager, more than two weeks after the end of the season. Despite Ten Hag currently being on vacation, frustration is mounting within the club due to the lack of a finalized transfer strategy. The club has overspent on players during Ten Hag’s tenure, with the £86 million spent on Antony being the most prominent recruitment failure under the Dutchman, reflecting a wider issue at the club.

Though transfer priorities have not yet been determined, it is believed that acquiring a new centre-half is high on the club’s wishlist. Ten Hag had anticipated that a decision about the managerial position would be made shortly after the end of the season, but this has not been the case. Despite the unexpected success of delivering the FA Cup, the Dutchman has issued a clear challenge in response to reports of his potential sacking in Manchester by stating “If they don’t want me any more, I go somewhere else and win trophies, that’s what I’ve done my whole career.”

Ten Hag is aware that Manchester United and their management have been in discussions with potential replacements. In addition to making a managerial decision, Ratcliffe and his associates are focused on upgrading United’s training ground, which has received criticism for being subpar, and getting the best out of the currently underperforming squad. Pre-season training for United is scheduled to commence at the beginning of July.
