Ten Hag pushing Man Utd to release January funds

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is pushing the board to release more funds for the January market.

The club splashed the cash in the summer purchasing players that totalled £200million.

And Ten Hag is keen to continue his re-build after seeing positives in performances and results in recent weeks.

The Dutchman recently said: “We have many meetings — we have to improve the structures in and around the club.

“And we will also look to the window in January or next summer already.”

However his buying may have to wait beyond the winter window as United’s net spend is double what was originally projected, claim The Athletic.

The next sizeable budget for Man Utd is reportedly set to be in the summer of 2023.

It is suggested that owner Joel Glazer, chief executive Richard Arnold and director John Murtough are focused on next year’s window as the next chance to bolster the team.
