Manchester United are having a quiet window to this point with only Wout Weghorst arriving on loan from Burnely. Nonetheless, with an unlikely title tilt now on the horizon following a shocking comeback victory over neighbours Man City, Erik ten Hag might just be given some extra funds to mount a challenge.
Even with little movement this month, United are still working hard behind the scenes drawing up a shortlist of players to go after in the subsequent six months. Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen have been mentioned as blockbuster targets but Ten Hag also wants to overcome the Dutch market and snap up a few of the younger players within the region.
In accordance with reports, he has told scouts to keep watch over over a dozen young Dutch players with Jurrien Timber and 4 others of particular interest to Ten Hag. Youth will be the way forward for United as it is also emerged they’ve been taking ‘discreet’ scouting trips to ascertain in on Real Betis teenager Luiz Henrique.
United owners the Glazers are reluctant to spend big in January but loans and bargain deals are still a reputable option. Marcus Thuram, whose deal runs out in the summertime, is one the club could goal this month with Chelsea also eyeing him up and Borussia Monchengladbach open to cashing in on him.
