United have made four signings so far this summer, spending almost £180million in the process. A fifth arrival is almost certain, as a new goalkeeper will come in once Dean Henderson’s move to Crystal Palace is complete.
Ten Hag knows he will likely have to sell before he can make any more permanent signings. He could therefore look to sign players on loan, with a left-back high on his agenda following the injury to Luke Shaw.
Donny van de Beek and Eric Bailly are among those who could leave, while reports over Harry Maguire‘s future have surfaced again. But clubs are in a race against time to complete deals, with the window shutting at 11pm on Friday.
