Erik ten Hag has identified an eight-man core for Manchester United, while a trio of players is also under consideration.
We anticipate a large number of players leaving Old Trafford during the summer transfer window.
While we have had a really challenging campaign after going five years without winning a trophy, we will not be saying goodbye to every player, as some supporters may argue should happen on social media in the coming weeks.
Erik ten Hag will need time to get to know his new team, but rumors suggest that he is already making preparations for his arrival at Old Trafford this summer.
In an article published by The Telegraph, Ten Hag will attempt to’revitalize’ Harry Maguire’s career by looking into why he appears more at ease playing for England than for Manchester United.
It is also believed that he will give Marcus Rashford the opportunity to thrive under his guidance, despite rising speculation that the club and player would be better off if they parted company.
According to the source, as Ten Hag evaluates Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, and Marcus Rashford, he has already settled on a core of ‘approximately eight players’ in whom he would place his trust and around whom he will create his new team. He also agrees with Ralf Rangnick’s opinion that United require up to ten new players, which he will not be able to obtain as long as the Glazers retain ownership of the team.
Taking a step back from the story for a moment, I believe that every player in the club should be evaluated when Ten Hag takes over as head coach ahead of next season.
If some of the players in his apparent ‘eight-man core’ fail to impress, he may take a quick look and make some snap decisions.
