Erik ten Hag has already begun his preparations for the next transfer window.
According to sources at Football Insider, the Dutchman will ask for three ‘marquee stars’ in the summer to bolster his squad for the 2023/2024 campaign.
Given the current situation in terms of a potential takeover, the manager may have significant financial backing if the transfer of ownership is completed.
Ten Hag acquired five permanent signings last summer, all of which have been pivotal to the resurgence he has orchestrated at Old Trafford, especially the likes of Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez.
The Dutchman clearly has the best eye for what talent he needs at his disposal.
A prolific striker should be the priority
At the end of the season, a striker should be top of the boss’ list. Anthony Martial is simply too unreliable with his ongoing injury issues, and a clinical No.9 is needed if the Reds want to continue to compete at the highest level.
