Transfer: Why Man Utd spent over £220m on new players – Ten Hag
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has defended their record summer transfer spending.
According to the Dutchman, it is the only way they can compete for a place in the top four this season.
Ten Hag has overseen an outlay of more than £220million, which is the most the club has ever spent in a single window.
Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, Antony and Martin Dubravka have all arrived at Old Trafford this summer.
If you want to compete at the top, you don’t have a choice.

“We have the ambition, especially in the long term, to play for trophies." We had to do this, I think.
“Last season, the benchmark was only five transfers above £60m and I don’t know how many now,” Ten Hag told a news conference on Wednesday.
