Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag has key reason for pursuing both Eriksen and De Jong transfers | Football | Sport


Removing De Jong’s salary from the wage bill would allow them to acquire some of their key targets. Xavi guided Barca to a second-placed finish after a dreadful start to the campaign under Ronald Koeman. 

In many ways, Ten Hag will hope to replicate Xavi’s Barca work when he welcomes his United squad back to pre-season. An excellent transfer window will help the 52-year-old propel the Old Trafford side back among the Premier League’s elite clubs. 

Ten Hag is also believed to want to restock his attacking options having noticed that his side relied too heavily on a 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo for attacking output last term. Ajax winger Antony apparently has been targeted.
