With Erik ten Hag’s side lacking options up front, especially in the case of a Ronaldo departure, the youngster could be given every chance to succeed in the coming years.

Necessary Improvements

Going into pre-season, it was clear to most that the 13-time Premier League winners would need to improve a lot to compete with the top clubs in England.

Completing the signing of De Jong and Sesko would go a long way to easing fan’s fears and giving Ten Hag a fighting chance of competing for Champions League football in his first term in Manchester. Whether those in charge of transfers choose to meet the price tags or not remains to be seen.
