Manchester United handed major blow for winter transfer window

Manchester United are not expected to make any major signings in January.


Manchester United had a fairly active summer transfer window that saw them sign five players.

At the back the Red Devils brought in Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia, whilst Christian Eriksen and Casemiro have bolstered what was a very weak midfield.

Further forward, meanwhile, Erik ten Hag sought the services of former player Antony, who has signed from Ajax for a mammoth fee.

The majority of those signings have already bedded in nicely. Antony scored on his debut vs Arsenal, whilst Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia have improved United’s backline a great deal.

Christian Eriksen, meanwhile, has already proven he is still at the top of the game, producing some moments of brilliance on several occasions already this campaign.

However, Erik ten Hag looks to be keen on strengthening his squad further in the January window:

“We have many meetings — we have to improve the structures in and around the club,” Ten Hag said. “And we will also look to the window in January or next summer already.”

But judging by a report from The Athletic on Monday, Ten Hag may have to wait until the summer of 2023 to see any more major changes made to his squad:

“United had a net spend of more than £200million this summer, almost double the original projections when Ten Hag took charge, and therefore funds are expected to be very tight when the winter market opens. Owner Joel Glazer, chief executive Richard Arnold and football director John Murtough are focused firmly on summer 2023 as the next opportunity to significantly add to Ten Hag’s squad.”
