Dan Ashworth’s first move as Director at Manchester United will please Erik ten Hag – Mirror Online

The arrival of the sporting director has ushered in a new football hierarchy at the club, including Ashworth, Jason Wilcox, and new CEO Omar Berrada. They are poised to make significant changes at Old Trafford under Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s overhaul since his investment.

This transformation may have initially caused some concern for Ten Hag, but the Dutchman will likely be reassured by the club’s plans. United’s pursuit of Antony has faced criticism, given the Brazilian’s previous struggles in the north west.

However, the 54-year-old will likely feel justified in his team’s interest in Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt, with whom he has previously worked at Ajax. United’s focus this summer will be on priority positions – center-back, midfielder, and striker – despite having only a £50 million budget to start with, due to profit and sustainability rules.

Despite signing Rasmus Hojlund last summer, the club’s desire to recruit a new forward to ease the burden on the Denmark international is no secret. There is an ambition to increase the transfer budget by up to £200 million, which would involve sales of seven players.

Notably, Varane, Martial, and Williams have already left the club this summer, though their departures did not significantly increase the club’s funds, as they left on free transfers.
