Things have to turn around for Manchester United during the second half of the season, and if Erik Ten Hag was unable to do that with the players he had during the first six months, he might be able to do so with some reinforecements.
According to different reports, the Red Devils have identified three players that could add depth to their squad while also filling some positions where Ten Hag needs more options for the second half of the season. These reports claim that the English side is willing to spend over €200M to hire new players, all of which have been marquee footballers for their teams in the FIFA World Cup.
The first of those signings would be a Portuguese player: Gonçalo Ramos. The current Benfica ace would join the Red Devils if the club can come up with the €120M price tag slapped on the player by the Primeira Liga side. Ramos, as he did for Portugal, would come to Old Trafford to replace his compatriot, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The second signing of this lot would be that of Dutch ace Cody Gakpo, who had a scintillating run for the Netherlands during the first stage of the tournament, where he bagged three goals for Louis Van Gaal's side. A couple of weeks ago, PSV's bosses admitted that they would consider any bids for the player that went over €80M, so that may be a good hint for Manchester United execs to begin with.
Last, but not least, Manchester United would be keen on adding some proven Premier League talent, as they would be willing to lure Christian Pulisic to Old Trafford. The American player has been sidelined by both Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter, which means that the Blues might be open to deal with any suitors for the player. The only issue here would be to see these Premier League teams making businesses right in the middle of the season.
So, there you have it. It seems that the Red Devils are ready to splash cash in order to get back to the top four. Nevertheless, only time will tell if the teams they want to negotiate with are willing to agree terms with the most successful Premier League team in history.
