Erik ten Hag hints at January transfers with Manchester United boss insisting ‘we are always looking for better’ as Champions League race heats up

Erik ten Hag has said Manchester United will “go on strike” and bring in new signings in January if opportunities arise.

The Red Devils suffered a setback before the winter transfer window even started with long-term target Cody Gakpo opting to join rivals Liverpool earlier in the week.

But Man United are currently in a better position to finish in the Champions League places than Liverpool, with their victory at Wolves putting them in fourth place while the Reds are sixth.

And Ten Hag suggested there could be new additions to Old Trafford once the window opens.

But the Dutchman was keen to stress that there was still a lot to play for in the race for the coveted top four.

Asked if Man United will bring in new signings, Ten Hag told talkSPORT after the 1-0 win at Molineaux: “I think we always have to do better in the organization of the club.

“So we will always look for better and if there are opportunities we will strike.”

As Manchester United finished fourth, Ten Hag added: “I’m happy with that but it’s a long way to go. We want to be in a position, maybe even better, in May.
