Manchester United have been fairly active in the transfer market this summer so far.
They have signed Christian Eriksen on a free, Lisandro Martinez from Ajax and Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord.
However, Manchester United still desperately need another central midfielder, some cover on the flanks and, if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves, another striker.
But with just over two weeks of the window to go, United do not appear to be close to signing anyone else.
Despite this, when discussing transfers recently, Ten Hag remained clam and expressed confidence he would have the squad he needs come the end of the transfer window:
“When Manchester United is not performing, not winning, that’s normal,” Ten Hag said when asked if the concern on fans’ message boards was shared inside United.
“I would be more in panic when there wasn’t panic because we have to win. That is the demand. Still, I would say panic isn’t the right word. It’s more like, ‘come on, we have to act’. We have to think bright and do the right things.”
He added: “Once again it would be my preference (if) we could be starting the process earlier, that’s quite clear but at the end of the day the season is long and you have to get in the right players,” he added.
“It’s really complicated but I think we are really happy with what we have done until now.”
On having the squad he needs by the time the window shuts, he added: “We have to. I am convinced we will have.”
