Erik ten Hag was anticipated to dramatically restructure Manchester United’s team when he joined from Ajax this summer, but only three acquisitions have been completed thus far.
Christian Eriksen joined on a free transfer, Tyrell Malacia joined on loan from Feyenoord, and Lisandro Martinez followed Ten Hag to Old Trafford.
Casemiro, the Real Madrid and Brazil player, will join the club in the coming days after United reached an agreement with the Spanish giants.
Still, United’s spending this summer has been minimal, but that may be set to change as the Glazer family loosens their purse strings, according to sources.
According to The Times, United’s embattled owner has approved a late flurry of high-priced bids for players the club is interested in. The astonishing event came just weeks after United haggled with Barcelona for over £11 million.
As per the report, Ajax winger Antony is one of the players United have now set their sights on amid their newly inherited spending power.
These suggestions were corroborated by journalist Tom McDermott, who says that one agent revealed that the Glazer family has ‘relaxed’ the transfer budget in recent weeks. The pursuit of Marko Arnautovic being abandoned in favor of moves for Casemiro and Antony are named as examples of the fresh stance.
There’s no way back for the Glazer family with the United fans – the relationship is broken to the point of no salvation and a flurry of transfers before Monday’s planned protests is not going to ease the impact against Liverpool.
The campaign to force United’s owners out of the club has gathered traction, and it can only be concluded that the Glazer family is attempting to compensate by appeasing supporters.
In reality, the cash injection given to Ten Hag would most likely be written off as debt by the club in order to boost the club’s stock market valuation ahead of a prospective sale.
It must be emphasized that supporters’ attitudes about the Glazer family will not shift despite increased investment in the team.
