Declan Rice wanted

Manchester United will look to improve their squad significantly during the summer transfer window and manager Erik Ten Hag will reportedly be handed a considerable transfer budget at the end of the season.

According to a report from the Guardian, the Red Devils are keen on signing the West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.

Apparently the 25-year-old is high on the Dutch manager’s transfer wishlist this summer.

Rice has developed into one of the best defensive midfielders around Europe and he would be a massive upgrade on the likes of Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic.

The England international will be looking to play regular European football and it remains to be seen whether Manchester United can provide him with the platform next year.

Van de Beek set for another chance

The arrival of Ten Hag could resurrect the career of Dutch international midfielder Donny van de Beek.

According to a report from the Sun, the 25-year-old midfielder is set to be handed a chance to revive his Manchester United career by his former boss.

Ten Hag has worked with the Dutch midfielder during their time together at Ajax and van de Beek was a key player for the 52-year-old before moving to England.

The midfielder is currently on loan at Everton and he’s likely to get an opportunity to turn things around at Old Trafford next season.

McLaren request refused

Manchester United have confirmed the appointment of Erik Ten Hag as the new manager and the 52-year-old is set to take over at the end of the season.

However, the Red Devils have refused his request to bring in the former Manchester United assistant manager SteveMcLaren back to the club.

Apparently, the 52-year-old manager wanted to bring Sir Alex Ferguson’s former assistant back to Old Trafford as a part of his coaching team.

It will be interesting to see how Ten Hag reacts to the developments now and whether he can convince the Red Devils to alter their stance and appoint McLaren as a member of his coaching team next season.

The former England boss knows the club well and he could play a key role in revitalising the squad next season.
