Right-back, midfielder and forward on Manchester United agenda for upcoming transfer windows
Manchester United have decided to pursue a right-back, midfielder and forward in the upcoming transfer windows. The Red Devils are set to target the three positions as they enter the second phase of their rebuild in January, according to Manchester Evening News (h/t Express).
Erik ten Hag was appointed United manager at the end of last season. The recent transfer window saw six arrivals at Old Trafford. However, the hierarchy are already in talks with the manager about future additions.
The Red Devils are aware they need to continue to make intelligent signings to compete with the top sides. While the team have found form in recent weeks, there is still a long way to go.
United looking to add more to the squad
Ten Hag has two options currently for the right-back spot. Diogo Dalot has been the preferred option this season. This has left Aaron Wan-Bissaka with little game time. And the former Crystal Palace star’s future is uncertain at the club.
In the middle of the park, the additions of Christian Eriksen and Casemiro have evidently helped the squad. The Danish national has wasted no time settling in Manchester.
On the other hand, the Brazilian was one of the best players in Spain before his move to England However, both the players are in their 30s. And adding another player to the engine room is not ruled out.
During the summer, the club made some shrewd additions to the squad. The likes of Tyrell Malacia, Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez and Antony have made an immediate impact at United.
