Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, revealed that Alejandro Garnacho’s standout performances this season have forced him to adjust his transfer strategy for the club. The Argentine Under-20 player, who was a crucial part of last year’s FA Youth Cup winning team, offers versatility on the left wing and consistently poses a danger to defenders with his attacking runs.
The manager was questioned by the media about his search for a new midfielder in the summer, to which he explained his constant consideration of the future while acknowledging that circumstances in football can shift rapidly.
”I think our summer plans, we have an idea on the long term,” he said. “You will also look two-three windows ahead and so we have that long-term plan.
“But also, you have to revisit that plan every time because of developments. For instance, who could have expected this development with Garnacho? And so this changes your approach to the window.”
With this statement, perhaps ten Hag is alluding to the fact that United were looking to add a winger/attacker to their squad but now might shift their focus to other targets especially considering the form of Rashford, emergence of Garnacho and the return of Jadon Sancho.
A center forward remains the number 1 priority for United as Anthony Martial has once again struggled with injuries this season. They have been linked with Harry Kane but Spurs will do all they can to keep their record goalscorer at their club.
