Ten Hag given 120 million pound budget to revitalise Manchester United

Erik ten Hag is reportedly set to be given more than 120 million pounds to spend on revitalising the Manchester United squad in the summer transfer window ahead of next season.

The 52-year-old was confirmed as United's new manager on Thursday and will take over from the interim manager Ralf Rangnick at the end of this season.

The Times have reported that the club's hierarchy are set to grant Ten Hag this transfer budget, which will be increased if they are able to sell players in the upcoming transfer window.

Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Edinson Cavani are set to leave for free, whilst the club are ready to listen to offers for the likes of Eric Bailly, Anthony Martial, Phil Jones and Andreas Pereira.

Manchester United transfer targets

Ten Hag has already held meetings with United's recruitment team, and they have identified various targets.

United are keeping tabs on Antony, the Ajax winger, who could be available for around 55m pounds this summer.

The Old Trafford club are also aiming to strengthen in central defence, and both Ajax's Lisandro Martinez and Juventus' Matthijs de Ligt have been linked.

Central midfield is a priority area to improve, and whilst the club have been put off by the 150m pound asking price for West Ham United's Declan Rice, Leeds United's Kalvin Phillips is seen as a potential alternative.

Ten Hag will hope the signings will give the squad a much-needed boost, as it is one that contains a great deal of talent.

Bruno Fernandes, Raphael Varane and David de Gea are viewed as the cornerstone of the new side, whilst Jadon Sancho is expected to develop into a world-class winger over the course of the upcoming seasons.

Just as the case was with Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer, Ten Hag will be able to veto all potential signings, as will the club's recruitment department.
