Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag targeting MORE transfers but must wait until next summer after ‘overspending’ in £200m spree | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED overspent in the transfer window but manager Erik ten Hag is already targeting more signings, according to reports.
The club splashed the cash in the summer purchasing players that totalled £200million.
And Ten Hag is keen to continue his re-build after seeing positives in performances and results in recent weeks.
The Dutchman recently said: "We have many meetings — we have to improve the structures in and around the club,
"And we will also look to the window in January or next summer already."
However his buying may have to wait beyond the winter window as United's net spend is double what was originally projected, claim The Athletic.

The next sizeable budget for Man Utd is reportedly set to be in the summer of 2023.
It is suggested that owner Joel Glazer, chief executive Richard Arnold and director John Murtough are focused on next year's window as the next chance to bolster the team.
Ten Hag was backed heavily in the summer bringing in players he knew such as Antony and Lisandro Martinez.
He also signed Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Martin Dubravka – while the club ended up retaining Cristiano Ronaldo.

Reports also claim the late £85million capture of the ex-Ajax star Antony was sanctioned by Ten Hag who chose to spend heavily on him rather than try to add a right-back and a winger.
Man Utd are already being linked with potential targets for the future with Leicester's Youri Tielemans someone the club is reportedly interested in.
They could also try again to convince Frenkie de Jong to join the Red Devils after chasing him all summer.
