Man United’s ‘number one goal’ in midfield and ‘dream’ striker signing: Ten Hag planning big changes

The appointment of Erik ten Hag as Ralf Rangnick’s successor points to a long-term plan, with players to be bought with a specific style of play in mind rather than just accumulating names because they sound good.

This means a lot of exits are expected to take place at Manchester United, with Paul Pogba’s and Edinson Cavani’s contracts expiring and players like Anthony Martial set to look for new clubs.

Calciomercato look at the situation going forward, and with no Champions League football on offer, it’s stated ‘salaries will be cut by 25% for the entire squad’.

Missing out of European’s elite competition could also ‘hinder the arrival of some great players Ten Hag’s list’, because while ‘the history of Manchester United remains, the guarantee of being a protagonist at the highest levels of world football’ isn’t there.

Therefore, ‘it will not be easy for the club to convince players like Sergej Milinković-Savić of Lazio – the number one goal in midfield for the Red Devils’ to join, since he dreams of playing Champions League football.

It’s also stated ‘there will be big changes in attack’, where ‘the dream is called Darwin Nuñez’.

Manchester City’s signing of Erling Haaland could help Manchester United here, ‘as there is now less competition for the Uruguayan’.

Calciomercato also state we must not forget Antony, ‘a Brazilian from Ajax that the Dutch manager has trained and one he could take with him to make his new home feel a little more like home’.
