Erik ten Hag reviews Man Utd’s 1-0 win against Wolves

Manchester United’s Premier League season got off to a winning start against Wolves on Monday night, but the display left more questions than answers.

Indeed, Erik ten Hag’s work in the summer transfer market is clearly not done, with pundits left noting the lack of defensive midfielder as the visitors regularly cut United to shreds going forward. But firstly, he needs to let players to go amid FFP restrictions.

This is proving easier said than done though. Harry Maguire’s £30 million move to West Ham is set to fall through, with the centre back seemingly keen to stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford.

We round-up all the latest transfer news coming out of the club in the last 24 hours….

United chief explains Greenwood investigation

Manchester United’s chief operating officer Collette Roche has confirmed the club “now just need to make a decision” on Mason Greenwood’s future.

United begun an internal investigation regarding Greenwood’s future but are yet to make a call. The England forward still has two years left on his contract, whilst the club have an option of a further 12 months.

“We’ve done a really detailed and thorough internal investigation and we’ve asked as many people as we can around what happened and try to understand it beyond the original investigation done by the police,” Roche told The Athletic. “You’d expect us to engage with people who were relevant in terms of stakeholder groups. And now we just need to make the decision. That decision is firmly a decision that’s on us.”

Bailly denied big money move

United centre back Eric Bailly has been left in out in the cold following reports that Manchester City have accepted a bid from Al-Nassr for Aymeric Laporte.

The Ivory Coast international is free to leave Old Trafford after spending last season on loan at Marseille. He was seemingly lined up to be the next high-profile star to join the Saudi Pro League - but that move has now been scuppered by Al-Nassr’s interest in Laporte.

Get the United home shirt for 23/34

United’s Adidas home shirt is made up of the same colour of the city’s iconic red rose and features a black collar. The collar also features a dash of both red and white, giving it a slick and modernised look.

Prices start from £55


According to The Athletic, the Saudi outfit have had a bid accepted for the 29-year-old, who featured just 12 times for the treble winners last season. Laporte is believed to be open to the idea of switching to the Middle East, which is bad news for Bailly.

Gary Neville has urged United manger Erik ten Hag to make two more signings before next month’s transfer deadline expires at 11pm on September 1.

Responding to a post on social medai that asked him to rate United’s summer window, he responded: “I’d say currently a solid 6.5 out of 10. We don’t know fully how the three signings are doing to do so it could shift up or down. I wanted a proven striker with Hojland and another MDF. Let’s see what happens.”

Neville’s comments follow him encouraging the club to move for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat on Sky Sports. He’s not outlined what other forward he thinks United should now move for though.
