To this end, the Red Devils are firmly in contention for three more trophies this season, including the FA Cup and the Europa League title.

However, reports claim ten Hag is still keen to further strengthen his squad in the upcoming transfer window, to allow him to challenge for more trophies next season.

Who does ten Hag want?

According to the Manchester Evening News, ten Hag is keen to reinforce the midfield and striking departments in the summer.

The publication reports the United boss wants to go for Barcelona midfielder, Frenkie de Jong for the second time, having failed to secure his signature last summer.

Borussia Dortmund ace, Jude Bellingham is also said to be top on the transfer wishlist alongside Tottenham talisman, Harry Kane and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen.

The tactician has also earmarked Benfica's Goncalo Ramos and Ajax's Mohammed Kudus as summer targets.

A potential move for these players will no doubt occasion exits from Old Trafford, with United said to be willing to listen to offers for Harry Maguire, Alex Telles, and Anthony Martial.

Man United sign Welsh star

Sports Brief also reported on Man United signing Gabriele Biancheri, the highly-rated Welsh teenage sensation.

He will move to Old Trafford on scholar terms before he signs for the club as a professional in September.

The 16-year-old was expected to make the switch in January but was unfortunately delayed by FIFA red tape.
