Erik ten Hag has had a summer full of rumours and star signings, no doubt the board are confident in what the manager can bring to the Red Devils, it has been an act of trust for a team playing in the Europa League to invest £225 million in signings, with no star moves to get players who would add to an ambitious project like this manager.

When the club lost 4-0 to Brentford in what was the second game of the season, and with it, the second Premier League defeat of the season, they decided to make last-minute moves, the team went into a deep pressure crisis and spent almost £150 million on the signings of Brazilians Casemiro and Antony, both of whom came to the club for that amount, one as a 22-year-old Ajax prospect, the other as an experienced midfielder who won the Champions League.

Before having signed the midfielder who is also a great defender, Casemiro, the club had its sights set on another player, before the interest in the Real Madrid player, there was a lot of interest in another player, the Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who shared a dressing room with Erik ten Hag in that Ajax team that made all the fans of the Dutch team dream. The player did not want to listen to the offer because it was a team that would play in the Europa League.

Although the player is full of dressing room problems in Barcelona, they have reduced his salary, in addition to no longer have many minutes, it seems that he will begin to educate proposals, the problem is that it would join the rival of the Red Devils, the team of Jurgen Klopp is waiting to be able to contact this Dutch player who will leave Barcelona, and seek replacement for him to play that will leave Arthur Melo.

It will be a battle between the two most winning teams in England, they will seek to keep one of the best signings, the player is no longer comfortable in Xavi's team, is considering the possibility of signing in any of these two teams that would offer him a leading role, the disadvantage is that Man Utd does not play the Champions League and that will help to decide for the team of Anfield.
