Manchester United staff struggling to press ahead with transfer plans

Manchester United have yet to appoint their new manager, with Ralf Rangnick’s duration as interim boss coming to an end at the end of the season.

In a recent column, I wrote about how there are growing concerns over United’s search for a new manager. It becomes an even bigger problem when United can’t plan ahead for next season…

According to the Telegraph, United’s search for a new manager is expected to gather pace over the next few weeks, with Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino dividing opinion among staff.

There is also mentions for Thomas Tuchel, Luis Enrique and Julen Lopetegui — making it a five-man shortlist.

However, the report states that staff are struggling to press ahead with summer transfer plans and they’re concerned about the impact of such delays with so many key decisions on hold.

How can United make decisions, like offering players new contracts, without knowing who will be in charge next season and beyond?

It’s next to impossible and it shows that excuses are already being made for next term. 

Does football director John Murtough not know what the club needs?

  1. Exactly with a new manager not decided, how would Manchester United plan for the next season.
    Players would surely need to know who the manager would be leading them in order to sign for the club.
    Just hope that this despondency do not hurt the club’s ambition for return to the glory trail and glory days in the next one or two seasons.

  2. strettynews were literally the biggest cheer leaders for OGS along with paddock.

    you lot really shouldnt be commenting on the clueless nature of the people who run united – appointing ole and sticking with him is literally a sign of just how clueless these people are – yet you published numerous pieces not only defending ole but also gaslighting people who criticised his management.

    ole’s tenure has set united back years -, and the so called fans who cheered as united got embarrassed week after week under him can own a little bit of that.
