Following Manchester United’s qualification for next season’s Champions League, Erik ten Hag has demanded quality reinforcements ahead of the summer transfer window.

Ten Hag stated that the club needs to bring in “better players” in order to have a realistic chance of winning major titles in the upcoming season. United qualified for the Champions League with a 4-1 victory over Chelsea in their penultimate final Premier League encounter.

This victory lifted them to third position, which might be only their fourth top-three finish in the last decade if they defeat Fulham on Sunday.

Ten Hag, on the other hand, emphasised the necessity of strengthening the squad during the summer transfer window, and he is anxious to add a striker, a midfielder, and at least one defender to the group. Ten Hag acknowledged the difficulty of the Premier League competition, particularly with Manchester City playing fantastic football, when discussing the team’s ambitions.

While recognising the team’s positive direction and progress, he maintains they still work to do.

“It’s difficult to say in this moment, you have to see now how you come out of the transfer window but if I see now we need more. But I don’t have so much patience, that is one of my mistakes,” he told reporters after beating Chelsea.

“We want to win every game but also, as I just tried to explain, it’s tough here, there are really good teams, especially this season. Manchester City are playing really outstanding football. We have a way to go, we are in the right direction, we have work to do, so a work in progress.

“I think in this league, that’s a good base to be in the top four but, yeah, we want to compete for the title. Now we are far away, so we have a lot of work to do, we’ve made progress with this team, with this squad but we need better players if we want to compete for the highest.”

Manchester United will welcome Fulham to Old Trafford on Sunday in their final league game of the 2022/23 season.
