Ten Hag Issues Transfer Ultimatum to Man Utd, £100m Deal Deadline Given to Boost Title Charge

According to a report, Erik ten Hag has told Manchester United when he wants the club to sign a new striker, amid links with several goal scorers.

Wout Weghorst, on loan from Burnley, is Manchester United’s current center-forward. With Anthony Martial out injured and Marcus Rashford preferentially operating on the left flank, Weghorst has started the majority of Manchester United’s recent games.

Ten Hag has been impressed by the 30-year-work old’s ethic and link-up play. His goal scoring record, on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired.

Weghorst has only scored twice in 18 appearances for Manchester United. While these figures may improve after the international break, it is clear that Ten Hag requires a more prolific attacker to lead his forward line next season.

Ten Hag places a high value on Tottenham talisman Harry Kane. Spurs will finish the season without a trophy for the second year in a row, and they are also looking for a new manager after sacking Antonio Conte.

Kane could leave Tottenham if the club fails to show enough ambition in replacing Conte. And if this happens, Manchester United will be ready to make a huge £100 million bid – but it remains to be seen whether this will be enough to convince Daniel Levy to sell.

Victor Osimhen of Napoli is another in-form striker who will cost Manchester United around £100 million. He has admitted that he wants to play in the Premier League, but Manchester United will have to work hard to persuade Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis to let him go.

If deals for those two players do not materialize, Benfica’s Goncalo Ramos could be targeted instead. According to the Portuguese press, he is’very disappointed’ with Benfica for taking so long to finalize his new contract. And this could give Manchester United a huge boost in their pursuit of him.

Update on the Manchester United takeover and striker plans

ESPN has published a report on the Manchester United takeover situation, which includes some interesting information about Ten Hag’s transfer plans.

It begins by stating that the revised bids from Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani total around £4.5 billion. This is less than the Glazer family’s £6 billion valuation. However, there is still hope that the ownership change will take place.

Staff at Manchester United have been told to expect ‘clarity’ on the situation by the end of the season.

Ten Hag, in particular, will be watching the takeover race with bated breath. He has told club officials that he wants a “top-class striker” to arrive at Old Trafford before the club’s pre-season tour of the United States begins in July.

Ten Hag believes that this will give the new attacker enough time to settle in at Manchester United and form a good partnership with Rashford and Bruno Fernandes.

This will give Manchester United the best chance of competing for the Premier League title next season against the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City.

However, spending around £100 million on a single player is a major decision that will not be made until the ownership situation is resolved. Ten Hag will be desperate for the Glazers to sell Manchester United as soon as possible so that he can begin his summer transfer plans.
