Manchester United recall several of their loan players during the January transfer window.
Erik ten Hag is anticipated to fine-tune his defense and attack in the coming weeks following a strong start to the season.
Despite finishing outside of Champions League qualification, they have had a successful couple of months with victories over Liverpool and Arsenal.
The manager will almost certainly be looking at a handful of players who might join the club during the January transfer window.
He also has a couple of good options in the Championship who are currently on loan from Man United and can be recalled in January.
The Manchester Evening News is reporting that the club is considering terminating some of the players’ current loan deals.
Ethan Laird, Hannibal Mejbri, and Amad are all excelling in the league with United holding a recall option that can be activated once the transfer window opens.
Aaron Wan Bissaka is poised to leave the club after failing to impress Ten Hag despite being injured for the duration of the season.
Crystal Palace appears to be the most likely club for the right-back to join on loan after leaving the London club in 2019.
According to the site, United is concerned that it may impair the development of the young players, but the necessity to restructure the first-team group is more pressing.
Laird is currently on loan with Queens Park Rangers, where he has started 17 Championship games.
The English right-back played an important part in Ten Hag’s first pre-season at United contributing to more minutes than Wan Bissaka.
QPR’s performances did decline before the World Cup, but the team is still just outside of the playoff positions.
With Cristiano Ronaldo‘s departure, Amad would be the major option to recall if the club wanted to reinforce its attacking options.
United fans will recall the Ivorian international’s crucial goal against AC Milan in the Europa League a few seasons ago.
It is not ruled out that the club may spend money on a new attacking option in the January transfer window.
