Manchester United ‘Agree’ First Transfer As Erik Ten Hag Stance Emerges


The season’s conclusion is unknown for Manchester United.

If the Red Devils can defeat Manchester City in the FA Cup final, they may still succeed, but they must guarantee their spot in Europe for the upcoming season. Although last weekend’s Premier League tie with Burnley was disappointing, United is still expected to place sixth. By the last month of 2023–2024, their lead over Newcastle is down to just one point.

Away from the field, the summer is already firmly in focus. Old Trafford is about to undergo a major makeover as Sir Jim Ratcliffe forms a new footballing hierarchy to work during the transfer window.

Those already at the club will be focused on Crystal Palace however. Both coaching staff and players will be looking to prove their value.

First Departure Confirmed:

Few players aren’t expected to be traded in the summer, so it appears United may have already signed their first contract. Alvaro Fernandez Carreras, a young defender, left the team on loan in January, and this move is now set to be permanent.

According to reports originating from Portugal, Benfica is prepared to exercise the option included in the loan deal for the 21-year-old. They claim to have already agreed on a £5.1 million price.

After leaving Real Madrid for United in 2020, the Spanish left-back spent time on loan at Preston and Granada after failing to make an appearance for the first squad. In order to expedite the defender’s transfer to Benfica, the Red Devils ended his tenure at Granada.

The Portuguese giants have seen their loanee come in and out of the starting XI in recent months but have been willing to part with the modest fee. Carreras featured in Benfica’s weekend win over Braga as he helped inspire a comeback from a goal behind to earn a 3-1 victory.

Erik ten Hag stance:

Despite the uncertainty surrounding his job at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, is hesitant to return to Ajax. The Dutch manager has been linked to a return to his old team, Ajax, as revealed by Mirror Football last month.

After a challenging second season, many United supporters remain doubtful about Ten Hag’s ability to lead the team to success. The 54-year-old coach’s job is being evaluated in light of Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s arrival and the club’s personnel changes in the football department.

Despite the prospect of being relieved of his duties come the summer, Ajax are aware Ten Hag would be reluctant to walk out on his current role to ensure a return. For the moment they continue to monitor his situation in case he becomes available.
