It’s reported that Erik ten Hag is extremely upset with the Glazer family, the club’s owners, due to a decision they’ve made that could impact the upcoming season.
The fate of Manchester United remains uncertain, given the yet-to-be-resolved ownership status of the club. The Mirror’s David McDonnell reports that the United proprietors have currently stalled any potential expenditure until the Premier League club’s sale is finalized.

This decision has reportedly incensed Erik ten Hag, who would prefer to secure new players before the pre-season commences. Such a strategy ensures the squad is well-prepared and coordinated ahead of the new season. However, this delay has already set United at a disadvantage, with competitors like Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Newcastle having either signed or being on the brink of securing new recruits.
Man United have been associated with several high-profile stars this summer, with Mason Mount, Andre Onana, Axel Disasi, and Harry Kane amongst their prime targets.
The ongoing transfer window is paramount for the Red Devils as they strive to build on Ten Hag’s impressive work from the previous season. The Dutch coach’s vision is to shape a squad competent enough to vie for the Premier League title.
Despite this, circumstances are far from ideal for the boss, who is justifiably incensed with his club’s ownership.
