Erik ten Hag ready to take major transfer gamble in bid to implement philosophy at Man United

The Manchester Evening News claims that Ten Hag is prioritizing signing Frankie de Jong, a midfielder for Barcelona, as his main objective.

Christian Eriksen is also mentioned in the report, but it seems the management is not currently considering adding an all-defensive player in front of the back four.

After United’s dismal defensive performance last season, where players like Harry Maguire looked bad in part because of the lack of support from the midfield in front of them, this feels like a rather hazardous move.

Scott McTominay and Fred, for example, don’t appear to be strong enough to form a partnership, and the seasoned Nemanja Matic has already left Old Trafford on a free transfer.

If Ten Hag is unable to successfully execute his playing style, this could backfire and leave MUFC lacking in that area of the field.

It would have been wise for Man Utd to have given Yves Bissouma, who recently moved to Tottenham and didn’t do so for outrageous money, more thought.
