Friday 22 July 2022 06:30

Erik ten Hag says he has been impressed by what he's seen from four of his attackers on tour, but the Manchester United manager insists the Reds are continuing to look at additional options in the transer market.

Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho have all been among the goals during Tour 2022, while Bruno Fernandes has caught the eye behind them.

Ten Hag was asked about his plans for the young midfield pair in Friday's press conference.

Asked about the quartet in his pre-match press conference ahead of United's final match in Australia, against Aston Villa on Saturday, Ten Hag said: "You see they connect really good together and I think when you see that, you are lucky as a manager.

"The team is lucky. We have a threat, we have weapons. We have to improve that every day and develop that further."
The manager is looking forward to linking up with new signings Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez when the team arrive back in Manchester next week and he insisted the Reds are still on the look-out for other players who can improve the squad.

"You need more options, that is clear," he declared. "It's vital if you want to get success, the season is really long but we have time to fill that in."
