At the press conference at Manchester United, Erik ten Hag is very firm about 2 things: Cristiano Ronaldo is in his plans and he will stay. And after Antony and Martin Dúbravka, Manchester United are ready in the transfer market.
Despite the much speculation surrounding a trade deal with FC Barcelona’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Sergiño Dest, such a deal will not go through if you are to believe the ManUtd coach. He did not want to say much about Antony: according to him, the papers have not yet been signed and therefore nothing official yet. “The clubs are out, but he still has to sign first,” he said.
He said of Cristiano Ronaldo: “We need a broad pool of high quality players to stay consistent.” Along with the statement that ManUtd is ready after the transfers of Antony and Dúbravka, he makes it clear that Cristiano Ronaldo is not going anywhere until at least January.
