Ten Hag has been keen to advance with his summer transfer plans as they look to build on their top four finish and Carabao Cup win next season.

One of the names on his shopping list is West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice, however, United will face competition from Manchester City and Chelsea as well as Arsenal, who are the favourites to secure his signature following the takeover delay.

The Sun reported that the Dutchman is becoming annoyed by the Glazers’ reluctance to spend any significant money until the uncertainty of the club’s ownership has been resolved.

A source told the publication;

“Eric ten Hag is unhappy that his plans to sign a contract with Declan Rice are being disrupted due to the Manchester United takeover saga.

“The Red Devils boss thinks West Ham skipper Rice would be the perfect addition and he was desperate to make an offer.

“Ten Haga’s expenses are limited while the Glazers decide whether to sell or stay put, especially since United has not yet got rid of the expensive deadwood in their team.”

United have several other targets in their mind and could also allegedly be looking for a new goalkeeper, with several reports suggesting that David De Gea will leave the club.

Jordan Pickford is one name mentioned while Manchester United are also on the hunt for a striker. Rasmus Hojlund and Victor Osimhen are the names remaining on the club’s wish list for a striker as Harry Kane has been struck off.

Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani and Sir Jim Ratcliffe have been the two prominent bidders to complete a takeover at Old Trafford.

But despite reports suggesting Sheikh Jassim is edging closer to winning the battle, there’s been radio silence on the subject.

The Times reported that it is unlikely that the takeover will be completed before the start of the new 2023-24 season.
