Erik ten Hag has sent a Manchester United transfer hint to Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Erik ten Hag’s need for a striker this summer comes as news to no-one but it is the most important transfer of his Manchester United reign so far.

His task is made even more difficult by the lack of clarity over how the takeover process will conclude, meaning he has no idea how much he will have to spend in the transfer window.

While a forward is the primary goal, it is by no means the only one. A new midfielder is also required, preferably of a younger age. It is likely that United will see more outgoings than incomings this summer.

The Manchester Evening News understands that five players are set to be released by United, including Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe. But several more are set to be transfer listed.

United are open to allowing Anthony Martial to leave while club captain Harry Maguire is one player who Ten Hag could show the door. Any defensive reinforcements are only likely to come in if a defender leaves – or vice versa – as United try to navigate Financial Fair Play regulations.

The club are understood to be in talks with Bayer Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong. The 22-year-old has nine goals and 10 assists this season, mainly as a wing-back. His forward play as a defender is something United are missing.

By entering negotiations with Frimpong, Ten Hag is sending a message to current right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Diogo Dalot played every game he was available for before the World Cup, but has since lost his place to the resurgent Wan-Bissaka.
