Erik ten Hag, the coach of Manchester United, has expressed his desire to strengthen the team’s lineup with new stars in order to compete for the Premier League title next season.
Despite their recent 4-1 victory over Chelsea, the Red Devils are still 17 points behind Manchester City, who currently lead the league.
Ten Hag is focused on catching up and competing with City in the upcoming season, and believes that signing quality players is key to achieving this goal.
“We have laid a solid foundation, but we must continue to progress and strive for excellence,” he stated in a press conference. “However, we have a long way to go and we will need to work hard and bring in talented players if we want to challenge for the top spot.”
According to British media reports, Erik ten Hag has presented a list of five players to the team’s management, with a combined value of £365 million.
He is of the opinion that signing these players will bring about a significant transformation in the team.
Among the five players on Ten Hag’s list are Tottenham’s striker Harry Kane, Chelsea’s midfielder Mason Mount, West Ham captain Declan Rice, Napoli defender Kim Min-jae, and Bayer Leverkusen’s right-back Jeremie Frimpong.
