Manchester United are expected to be active in the transfer market over January with a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo believed to be Erik ten Hag’s top target. Cody Gakpo, Goncalo Ramos and Joao Felix have all been among the names most heavily linked with the situation expected to develop rapidly over the coming days.
United are currently four points off the coveted Champions League qualification spots and Ten Hag is likely to be encouraged by their game in hand on Newcastle and Tottenham ahead of them. Work in the Premier League will get back underway against Nottingham Forest on December 27 following the six-week break for the World Cup.
The Red Devils have already been back in competitive action with a 2-0 Carabao Cup win over Burnley on Wednesday. Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes both impressed but there is undoubtedly still room for Ten Hag to bolster his ranks.
