Man Utd takeover news: Ten Hag takes huge action as Sheikh Jassim left the Glazers disappointed

Express Sports keeps you up to date with all the latest news surrounding the Manchester United takeover.

Erik ten Hag has been handed a major transfer boost after the Glazers confirmed they will be increasing his transfer budget to £170million, according to reports. The Dutchman originally only had £120m to work with and spent almost half of that on Mason Mount.

With United in desperate need of a new goalkeeper and a No 9, there were concerns that Ten Hag wouldn’t be able to bring in both of his top targets; Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund for just £65m. But with an extra £50m slapped onto the budget, he now has the financial firepower to get the deals done.

United and Inter Milan have agreed a £47.2m for Onana and are now on the verge of signing the goalkeeper. Meanwhile, a price hike from Atalanta for Hojlund from £34m to £51m will no longer be a problem for Ten Hag.

United had offered at least three players in a part exchange deal for Hojlund but will now be able to pay the fee in full should they wish to.
