LONDON (AFP) – Erik ten Hag insists Manchester United will be attractive to potential star signings in the close-season despite the uncertainty over the club’s ownership.
Ten Hag revealed on Friday he sometimes found it difficult to convince players to join United in his first transfer window after taking charge at Old Trafford last year.
The United manager is expected to be active in the close season transfer market, with a goalscorer to take the pressure off Marcus Rashford one of his main priorities.
With the Glazer family yet to name a preferred bidder among those hoping to buy United from the Americans, there are many questions to be answered about the club’s long term future.
However, Ten Hag believes he has a clear vision to sell to prospective players after winning the League Cup, United’s first trophy for six years, reaching the FA Cup final and lifting them into the Premier League’s top four with four games left.
“I see a big difference in comparison with last year. There were a lot of reservations last year when I spoke with players,” Ten Hag said.
