    United’s transfer window clouds Ten Hag’s prospects

    MANCHESTER (AFP) – Erik ten Hag’s first competitive game as manager tomorrow should herald a fresh start for Manchester United, but familiar failings behind the scenes have made the Dutchman’s difficult job an almost impossible one.

    Ten Hag’s predecessor Ralf Rangnick signed off from his miserable caretaker spell last season by stating the United squad needed “open heart surgery” and up to 10 new players after labouring to a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.

    So far, only three new faces have arrived at Old Trafford – Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia and Christian Eriksen.

    The United squad is arguably weaker than last season with Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata having left for free, while goalkeeper Dean Henderson has joined Nottingham Forest on loan.
