Erik ten Hag reveals Manchester United's January transfer plans in new interview, fans won't be impressed

Erik ten Hag has revealed his plans for Manchester United for the January transfer window.

Man United have been linked with several players ahead of the transfer window reopening in January.

Reports claim the club are looking at strikers to offer 'support' to Rasmus Hojlund, who has yet to open his Premier League goal account.

Man United have also been strongly linked with a centre-back, with Benfica's Antonio Silva thought to be on their radar.

Ten Hag is also believed to be eyeing a midfielder.

But, according to the man himself, it's unlikely the Red Devils will make any new signings during the January transfer window.

Asked by the United We Stand fanzine if he plans to draft in any new players next month, he revealed: "I don’t think so - and if so, the approach from United should be that if you can improve your team, then you should do.

"What we expect from every player coming to Carrington every day is for them to give their maximum, to give their best."

The Dutchman added: "As a club, you have to look for improvements, so if you can find better and it’s realistic financially and with financial fair play, I think the club has to go with it. But realistically, in relation to the market, most of the time you don’t attract the best players in the winter.

"The top, top players will not leave their clubs in the winter. It’s players who are disappointed, injured or just not the right fit or whatever."

Quizzed on how many players he feels he's short of to have a side that could win the Premier League title, Ten Hag replied: "We have to develop and progress this team. In reality, we go to the next summer window and there will be new players coming in."

Man United currently occupy seventh place in the table, with 24 points on the board.

They've already lost six league games this season and are five points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa.

Ten Hag's team resume their league campaign tonight against Chelsea.
