Ten Hag dealt blow on first day with Man Utd ‘only willing to give him £100m’

Erik ten Hag might not have as much money as expected to rebuild Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

United have been linked with a whole host of new stars before the transfer window has officially opened. But after new CEO Richard Arnold admitted the club had “burned through cash” over the past decade, Ten Hag might be restricted in the market.

According to The Sun, Ten Hag, before any sales, might only have £100million to play around with this summer. And that could play against United's lengthy shopping list – with several big-money moves on the table for United.

United's main target for the summer is believed to be Frenkie de Jong – and the Red Devils have reportedly agreed a £68million deal with Barcelona.

De Jong played under Ten Hag at Ajax, and the Red Devils have lined up another move for another one of Ten Hag's former players in the form of Brazilian winger Antony, but Ajax are demanding £69million.

United would need to sell to finance both of the moves, and Anthony Martial and Eric Bailly are expected to be on the chopping block.

United have spent heavily in recent windows with limited success.

Paul Pogba cost United £89million in 2016, and he will leave on a free this summer, Harry Maguire cost £80million, and Romelu Lukaku saw the Red Devils part ways with £51million.

Arnold was filmed saying: "We’ve f***ing burned through cash. We spent a billion pounds on players, we spent more than anyone in Europe. I am not thrilled with where we are, it doesn’t sit easy and we’ve got to get this sorted."
