‘Man United can still bring in much-needed new signings’ – Sporting Life

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag said he was confident the club could bring in some much-needed signings before the transfer window closes early next month and also insisted he does not want to leave Marcus Rashford.

While United were able to strengthen some areas of the squad in the transfer window which ends on September 1st, fans were frustrated that the club were unable to sign another striker and central midfielder.

Trouble arose this week after the club reportedly made an offer for 33-year-old Bologna striker Marko Arnautovic, a move former defender Gary Neville called “desperate” but Ten Hag is confident he will soon will get enough more work.

“We have to,” Ten Hag told a press conference on Friday to look ahead to their trip to Brentford when asked if he was confident the right players could be signed.

“I am convinced that we will have (a better squad). I’m satisfied, I think we work very well together, I can’t tell you about individuals, I can’t talk about players who are under contract with other clubs.”

Rashford, who has struggled for form at United in recent years, has been linked in French media with a move to Ligue 1 champions Paris St Germain but according to his manager he is going nowhere.

“He’s a really important player,” added Ten Hag. “You’ve seen from the first day I’ve been here, I’m really happy with him, I don’t want to lose him, he’s definitely in our plans at Manchester United.”

In a hurry to come to terms with their opening-day home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion, Ten Hag remained keen to see if Cristiano Ronaldo, last season’s top scorer, will be fit for Brentford while unveiling French striker Anthony Martial and Sweden defender Victor Lindelof are made.

“He (Ronaldo) had a good week of training,” said Ten Hag. “He had two half-games and for the starting XI we’ll see tomorrow. My decision, I keep it.”
