Man United boss Erik ten Hag ‘wants’ second new forward after signing Rasmus Hojlund

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag wants the club to sign two new forwards this summer.

According to Manchester Evening News, Ten Hag wants an out-and-out striker and a forward who can play across the front three.

United have been heavily linked with a move for Denmark star Rasmus Hojlund. 

They are ready to launch a £50 million bid for the 20-year-old.

The Red Devils are interested in signing Harry Kane but know that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy would not want to sell the star striker to a direct Premier League rival.

Man Utd must sell to buy a second forward 

A few players do not have a future under Ten Hag. Alex Telles, Eric Baily and Anthony Elanga are the favourites to leave Old Trafford.

Harry Maguire, Dean Henderson, Anthony Martial, Fred and Donny van de Beek could also move out. However, United are yet to offload any of them.

The Red Devils have been very poor in recent history when it comes to selling players. They cannot repeat that mistake in this window.

United are working on a limited transfer budget. If they want to go beyond that threshold, they have to sell players to raise funds.

Mason Mount has made a switch to the Theatre of Dreams. Andre Onana looks set to be the second signing of the summer.

Once the Inter Milan goalkeeper officially joins United, they will switch their focus to Rasmus Hojlund.

If Ten Hag wants more arrivals after that, the Red Devils need outgoings. Without doing that, we do not see United making any more big-money signings.
