Erik Ten Hag and Manchester United have had a busy few days, what with the start of pre-season, the signing of André Onana, the possible reinforcements that could be added, the sale of the club which is still stalled and the budget problem that the team must address as a priority, as it could cause many problems for the club's plans. 

All this together with the fact that the Glazers have done nothing to improve the club and have also been unable to make a decision on the new owner, this undoubtedly ends up affecting the team and although they are focused on preparing for the next game of their tour, unconsciously these types of issues can affect them on the pitch. 

This also has a great influence on the new reinforcements, who could see the situation of the club and better go to other destinations, as in the case of Dutch defender Jurrien Timber, for whom the club was very interested in signing since the season, but for one reason or another the transfer could never be completed, until the news came out that the player would have preferred Arsenal and that the Gunners were always his first choice. 

Undoubtedly, this is one more indication of why the fans want the Glazers to leave, because surely if Sheikh Jassim, had already been the owner of the team, the project and the vision that the Qatari has would have been a kind of help for Timber to have chosen Old Trafford as his main destination, but unfortunately for the team things did not work out and they lost another great player.

The central defender would have been on the radar of Manchester United and several European clubs, however, the inability to sign him led Arsenal to jump the gun, offering Ajax 42 million and taking the player once and for all.
