Fabrizio Romano says Man United boss Erik ten Hag has been “lying” about transfer plans

Posted by

Transfer news expert Fabrizio Romano has spoken on his YouTube channel about Erik ten Hag’s slightly misleading claims about Manchester United’s plans for January.

The Dutch tactician has spoken publicly about what Man Utd could be looking for this January, but has played down the idea of the Red Devils being busy making new signings to strengthen the squad.

Romano, however, insists that Ten Hag is kind of “lying” about the situation, as it’s actually quite likely that the club will be busy this winter, though the plans will likely come together more once Sir Jim Ratcliffe can finalise the purchase of his 25% stake, while there would then likely be changes to the board…

Still, as Romano says in the video above, United have held internal discussions about striker targets, while they could also be in the market for a new defender.

MUFC fans will certainly hope there are some new faces brought in this January as this current squad has really struggled and changes will be needed if they are to stand a realistic chance of qualifying for the Champions League.

  1. Hopefully the board as silly and incompetent as they are don’t give TenHag a blue penny although hes very ultra Pennywise, for in an ideal soccer sane world he should not be a EPL . coach ever, I mean united on in tatters yet he wants to sign Kevin Phillips who’s useless at city, now how degrading is it to sign any player irrespective of class, from Liverpool or city, and to crown it ilall it’s a player that doesn’t make the grade at city, has united lost all respect for class and history to beg and plea for scraps from city, oh how degrading, yet the board will buy Kevin Phillips just to please TenHag.OMG. what has happened to united yet despite it all Fergie fancies TenHag to stay on for very long

  2. In less than two years I have finally given up on ten Hag and probably 10 or 12 players, either old or new. The manager seems to be clueless about who he has and where they fit on the pitch. I see a basically tired team both physically and mentally from over work in practice, lack of recovery time from games and uncaring attitudes. Injuries abound from too much conditioning and running at practice along with bad attitudes. The manager decisions game after game is a puzzlement to us fans both that starting lineups and in game timing of substitutes. Quite frankly ten Hag has to go and several players have to be sold. Sir James has to virtually start from scratch combining both the current players deemed worthy of the red shirt and those in the wings in the academy. Then look to the transfer market. It was supposed to be a three year building project for ten Hag but making the top four last season has created a disaster of expectations and over confidence that spending too much on new players was the wise way to go. Lavish amounts of money spent on players leads to big egos and difficulty building cohesive, goal driven system on the field. I don’t foresee any other option than to expect more pain for us fans.

  3. ETH look like someone who doesn’t know his players as he is not the one who bought them for me he is not the type of manager MUFC need with him MUFC is nowhere good
