Ten Hag identifies 8 Man Utd players he will build his team around
According to the UK Telegraph, incoming Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has already picked eight players with whom he will work closely once he joins the Premier League.
Some huge names and first-team regulars at Old Trafford have failed to perform on a consistent basis, prompting some fans to clamor for their dismissal or sale.
Ten Hag, on the other hand, will be more patient and is hoping to resurrect some dormant careers.
United captain Harry Maguire has been chastised this season for his poor form, but Ten Hag is curious as to why Maguire's form for his country is so much better than his club's.
To get the best out of Maguire, another center defender might be brought in.
Marcus Rashford is also under Ten Hag’s microscope after the most disappointing individual season of his career.
Ten Hag will be mulling over Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s performances and chances of a future at the club. The former Crystal Palace right-back appears to have lost his place as first-choice to Diogo Dalot.
Plenty of the current first team will not be around by the time Ten Hag arrives, with the likes of Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, and Edinson Cavani all expected to depart following the expiration of their respective contracts.
