Erik ten Hag reminds MU boss to spend money on shopping
Captain MU clearly, he needs new additions to improve the squad better and better.
MU needs reinforcements in the winter transfer, especially on the attack line after the early liquidation of Ronaldo’s contract in November.
Because the season has to be off for more than a month because of the 2022 World Cup, now the European “big boys” have to race with a tight schedule, in need of a squad with depth.
“We are always looking for (new) ways to motivate the players,” he told MEN. Because good is not good enough.
Moreover, in an organization, we have to push each other and when there is an opportunity to compete for the top position, you always have to be ready for it.
But my main focus right now is to get a better MU squad, which can improve the team’s strength.”
Arsenal are about to reach an agreement to sign Joao Felix
According to Spanish transfer expert, Fernando Kallas, Arsenal close to reaching an agreement to sign Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid.
This person said, the relationship between the Portuguese striker and head coach Diego Simeone cannot be improved and Felix wants to leave this January.
MU was also interested in wanting to borrow Joao Felix for the rest of the season, but was diverted because they did not agree with the fee Atletico demanded and had to pay the player’s full salary.
But Arsenal are different due to more pressing needs, as Gabriel Jesus could be sidelined for another three months following knee surgery. Coach Arteta needs a player like Joao Felix to cater for the busy remainder of the season.
Chelsea has not yet regretted 2 times to miss Haaland
British press said, Chelsea twice tried to sign Erling Haaland before the Norwegian striker joined Man City.
The first time was when Frank Lampard was at Chelsea and Haaland was playing for Salzburg, as the former midfielder himself revealed: “I tried to bring him to Chelsea but it didn’t happen”.
Then in the summer of 2021, Chelsea approached Haaland again because of their impressive performance in Dortmund shirt.
They identified him as the top target but in the end still could not convince this striker. The result of Chelsea bringing Lukaku back for £ 97.5 million and how it failed is clear to everyone.
Haaland is currently running rampant in the Premier League, but is in the shirt of Man City with 21 goals, more than Chelsea’s goals (20 goals). The Blues can’t help but regret because if they got the Norwegian striker, the team would probably be different at the moment – ranked 10th and 19 points behind Arsenal after 17 games played.
