Manchester United have already made a big decision for the transfer window


A new start. This summer, Manchester United decided to enter a new era by handing over the first-team helm to Erik ten Hag. To satisfy him, the residents of Old Trafford bent over backwards by spending around 260 million euros on the summer transfer market. Six recruits claimed by the Dutch technician have therefore arrived. Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Antony or even Christian Eriksen have notably landed with the Mancunians.

Man Utd have a plan

After ups and downs, the English team is gradually beginning to find its rhythm, as evidenced by the good performance achieved last night against Tottenham. A meeting marked by the new stroke of blood of Cristiano Ronaldo. The 37-year-old star, upset at not having come into play, returned to the locker room before the end of the match. CR7, who has just been sanctioned by his club, explained this Thursday with his coach. But his future seems to be written very far from Manchester.

And obviously, the English are not counting on him and should not oppose a departure this winter. It is still necessary that the former Real Madrid receives an interesting offer. Whatever, Manchester United has already planned everything for the next transfer window. This was explained by John Murtough, director of football, in the columns of the Telegram. “Ultimately, we achieved a record level of investment, reflecting market conditions, but also our commitment to supporting the manager”.

No splurge this winter

He then added: “We have always said that remodeling the squad will take more than a transfer window and we are already working with Erik on the next steps in this process, focusing on next summer and beyond. But it’s important to recognize that investment must always be sustainable, meaning that what we spend on players must be backed by long-term revenue. We finished the summer slightly ahead of what we expected, in terms of the number of players signed. We therefore do not expect the same level of activity during the next windows, even if we will continue to strengthen.”.

After splashing millions of euros in 2022, the British club don’t plan to splurge this winter. Erik ten Hag is already aware and seems to agree with its leaders, as John Murtough reminded us. “Every decision regarding the arrival or departure of a player has been agreed by both the manager and the club leaders. This is a crucial principle that we will always hold to.”. In the event of the departure of CR7, the situation could perhaps change. As we know, Ten Hag has long demanded an additional offensive player last summer. But to listen to Murtough, MU will only be active in the summer of 2023. Not before.
