Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag have sent a brutal takeover warning to Manchester United hierachy amidst the ongoing takeover process, MySportDab reports.
Erik Ten Hag has largely been silent on the takeover process at Manchester United but has favoured an option that will make more funds available for the club to recruit target signings and beef up the squad.
Speaking ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League tie against Chelsea today, Erik Ten Hag sent a warning to the club’s hierachy on the takeover process.
When asked whether Manchester United can derail backward as their domestic rivals, Chelsea if the takeover funds is not spent well, he said;
“Absolutely, yes. When there is no strategy behind it, or the right strategy, money doesn’t work.
”In this moment, let’s say there is a centralisation of good players, of the best managers, also of the money, it is all here in the UK. That makes a great competition, but also a tough and a hard competition.
”You have to do the right things. You can have money but you have to spend it in a smart way. Also, you need a strategy behind it because, otherwise, the money doesn’t work.”
In frank and candid tone, Erik Ten Hag called for a thrift and smart spending after the takeover process as the bidders close in on the club’s takeover.
Todd Boehly splashed a whooping £600m on new signings at Chelsea in August and January transfer window after he took over the club but they are struggling on the bottom half of the Premier League table.
Manchester United will tackle Chelsea tonight and needs just a point to seal a place in Champions League football next season.
Erik Ten Hag has recorded immense progress with the team but is hoping to sign more players in the summer to further strengthen the club.
However, the club’s transfer activities could be impacted by the takeover process with the Dutch tactician expecting enough funds to finance his move for prolific England and Tottenham goal-poacher Harry Kane and Napoli talisman Victor Osimhen.
Ten Hag is also plotting a summer move for Mason Mount with reports saying the club is ready to launch a £55m bid for the Chelsea star.
Juventus star Adrien Rabiot and Napoli defender Kim Min Jae are also on the club’s radar.
