Despite a challenging start to the Premier League campaign, where they faced losses to Tottenham and Arsenal, Ten Hag aims to secure another major trophy for the club.
While Manchester United secured narrow victories against Wolves and Nottingham Forest, they currently trail champions Manchester City by six points in the title race. However, there is ample time left in the season for the Red Devils to reverse their fortunes. Their upcoming Premier League fixture against Brighton at Old Trafford is followed by an exciting trip to face Bayern Munich.
Here’s the latest news from Manchester United:
Transfer Decision: Manchester United has decided against signing free agent Anwar El Ghazi, despite earlier speculations. El Ghazi, formerly of Aston Villa and Everton, became available after parting ways with PSV Eindhoven. Manager Ten Hag has chosen to place his trust in young wingers Facundo Pellistri and Alejandro Garnacho, both eager to establish themselves in the squad. It’s unlikely that Manchester United will make another signing until the next transfer window opens in January.
Lisandro Martinez’s Fitness: There is positive news regarding Lisandro Martinez’s fitness. The 25-year-old Argentine international, who was substituted during the 3-1 defeat to Arsenal, provided an optimistic update on his condition ahead of Argentina’s World Cup qualifier against Bolivia. Martinez is a vital figure for Manchester United, known for his partnership with Raphael Varane in central defense, a preference over Harry Maguire by Ten Hag.
Martinez expressed readiness for the upcoming challenges, sharing his confidence on Instagram.
Despite the early setbacks in the Premier League, Manchester United remains determined to contend for top honors under the leadership of Erik ten Hag.
