Erik ten Hag ‘has identified a core of eight players he can trust at Man United’ and ‘will look for three signings’ to start off his reign… including a centre-back to make Harry Maguire more comfortable
Incoming Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has reportedly identified a core group of eight players he can trust when he takes the reigns at Old Trafford.
Ten Hag will leave Dutch giants Ajax for United at the end of the season and faces a mammoth rebuilding task in returning the club to their former glories.
The Telegraph reports that Ten Hag also wants to sign a left-sided centre-back to make Harry Maguire more comfortable and to help the centre-back recapture his England form for United.

Maguire is currently injured and might not play again for United this season, but has endured a torrid campaign so far.
It promises to be a summer of upheaval at Old Trafford with a string of first team players out of contract in the summer, including Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani.
Interim manager Ralf Rangnick reportedly believes United need as many as 10 new players in the upcoming transfer window, including two new strikers.
