Man Utd boss Ten Hag tells ‘confidants’ the one player he wants to sign this summer as Liverpool pull out

According to reports, Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag wants to bring in England midfielder Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund.

Ten Hag will be hoping that the Glazers or a different Red Devils ownership group will give him the money he needs to bolster his team during the summer transfer window.

In addition to Martin Dubravka, who has since returned to Newcastle, Man Utd acquired Lisandro Martinez, Antony, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, and Tyrell Malacia. A similar investment would undoubtedly satisfy the Dutchman.

Even if the American owners stay, there shouldn’t be a shortage of money because the Glazers reportedly have access to a “company credit card” with a £300 million limit.

Ten Hag reportedly told confidants that if he could sign any player in the world, it would be the England midfielder, according to the Manchester Evening News. Ten Hag reportedly had a great admiration for Bellingham during the World Cup.

After watching Bellingham play for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga and Champions League, as well as at the World Cup, Ten Hag “sees immense potential” in him.

The manager of Manchester United stated that he “would endorse a second United pitch to Bellingham,” who they attempted to sign from Birmingham City before he decided to join Dortmund in 2020.

Following Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure from the team in 2013 and his retirement from football management, Ten Hag “feels can create history” by helping Man Utd win their first Premier League championship.

For obvious reasons, Manchester United is prioritizing a striker this summer, with expectations that they will spend at least £100 million on a new striker of the caliber of Harry Kane of Tottenham, Victor Osimhen of Napoli, or Randal Kolo Muani of Eintracht Frankfurt.

Although The MEN suggests that Manchester United are interested in signing Bellingham, they acknowledge that Man City and Real Madrid “have to be favorites ahead of United for Bellingham’s signature.”

Prior to Tuesday’s reports that they had withdrawn from a deal to sign Bellingham, Liverpool was also in the running to sign the England international.

The Times reported that Liverpool decided that using “a huge chunk of this summer’s funds to one player is no longer regarded by the club as the best strategy” due to Bellingham’s rising acquisition costs.

According to reports, Jurgen Klopp helped make the decision to scrap their plans to sign Bellingham in favor of a team “rebuild.”
