Erik ten Hag demands three new signings with Man Utd transfer budget revealed

Erik ten Hag is demanding three new signings from Manchester United’s hierarchy and wants the new arrivals at Old Trafford before the start of the club’s pre-season tour in July.

After a post-season review which has been conducted since the surprise win over Manchester City in the FA Cup final on May 25, United have now decided to keep Ten Hag in place as manager for a third season.

United had considered replacing Ten Hag and spoke to several candidates including Thomas Tuchel, who held talks with Sir Jim Ratcliffe in Monaco last week.

Mauricio Pochettino, who left Chelsea by mutual consent at the end of last month, was also approached.

United are now set to offer Ten Hag a new contract with his current deal set to expire next year.

Ten Hag now faces the prospect of working under a new hierarchy with Jason Wilcox brought in as technical director, while Dan Ashworth, who has been placed on gardening leave by Newcastle United, is wanted by Ratcliffe as United’s sporting director.
