Manchester United make January transfer decision

Manchester United enjoyed a tremendous summer transfer window. The start might have been slow but ultimately, the Red Devils ended up with names like Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, Antony, Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia and Martin Dubravka, currently on loan from Newcastle United. That is an impressive window to say the least and nobody can argue that Erik ten Hag has not been backed.

After splashing out in the summer though, the club would not be expected to do the same at the start of the year, and that is completely understandable to be honest.

As reported by The Athletic (via Mirror), Manchester United are unwilling to spend further in January after overseeing a greater spend than anticipated this summer.

Manchester United had lost to Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford early on in the season and it was believed that they needed urgent additions. With alarms ringing at Old Trafford, the club did what they needed to do and splashed out late on to strengthen the squad. The situation seems to be in control at the moment though, as the Red Devils have recorded four straight wins in the Premier League and are back in the top four race.

Manchester United have made January transfer decision

Unless Manchester United find themselves in trouble at the start of the year, it would be a surprise to see them make significant additions to this squad in January.

And to be honest, at this point of time, they do have a solid enough squad to challenge for a top four spot. The only area that seems to be a bit of a concern is striker, especially if Cristiano Ronaldo ends up leaving, after losing his place in the starting XI to Marcus Rashford.

Other than that, there are no holes in Manchester United’s squad at this point of time and Ten Hag has been backed by the club.
