Seven Manchester United Players Who Have To Impress Erik Ten Hag Or Be Expelled From The Squad

Spread the love

Erik Ten Hag has major decisions to make before the end of the season.

The Dutch manager has changed the fortune of the club, as they are looking forward to winning the Treble.

Manchester United

Manchester United have already won the Carabao Cup and are currently in the semi-finals of the FA Cup and the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

With new owners coming in before the end of next season, Ten Hag may get enough cash to rebuild his team next season.

There are players who failed to impress the manager, and Ten Hag looks ready to cut down on the cost of wages.

However, they can change the manager’s mind with 12 more matches to go
in the Premier League.

These are the seven players who must impress the manager or face expulsion from the team.


Anthony Martial

Manchester United

The French striker has not had the same amount of success as Marcus Rashford under Erik Ten Hag.

Martial remains the main reason why Manchester United signed Wout Weghorst from Turkey (Beşiktaş J.K.).

His injury crisis had been a limiting factor to his success, and his contract ends in 2024.

The club will love to cash in on him and get a better striker who won’t spend time with the medical staff.


Scott McTominay

Manchester United

The Scotland-born midfielder had fallen down the pecking order as Ten Hag had preferred to use Marcel Sabitzer, Casemiro, Fred, and Christian Eriksen.

In countless matches, Ten Hag had shown no trust in a Scottish player and was substituted after the first half due to poor passes and inability to move back to help his team.

McTominay had lost his attacking ability, and a move away from Manchester United is very realistic.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe is a major admirer of the midfielder, and he spent a huge amount in the transfer window.


Wout Weghorst

The Dutch striker has not been a striker that is capable of scoring a lot of goals. He is the kind of player who lacks pace and strength.

The striker had only scored two goals since he joined Manchester United and has been used countless times in the midfield.

He was brought in to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, but he hasn’t even been on the Portuguese international level for Manchester United.

There are higher chances that the player may move back to Burnley to join Vincent Kompany.


Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United

Ten Hag does not consider the English-Congolese defender as the right back ahead of Diogo Dalot.

The Defender hasn’t been the best when it comes to attacking, but his defending ability is exceptional.

Wan-Bissaka’s contract runs out next year, and he may be moving back to Crystal Palace.


David de Gea

The Spanish goalkeeper is one of the greatest in the history of the Premier League.

De Gea is the goalkeeper with the highest number of clean sheets at Manchester United.

De Gea has a lucrative deal worth £375,000 a week and will have to lower his wages if he is looking for a contract extension.

The goalkeeper has always been poor when it comes to delivering passes from the back.

These may be one of the reason why Ten Hag may look for De Gea long time replacement.

Harry Maguire

Manchester United

The defender has not played enough games under Ten Hag, as the manager has preferred to use Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane in most matches.

Maguire had only played in domestic cups. The manager had also preferred to start Luke Shaw in the center, even when Magire is completely fit.

The 30-year-old England defender is running out of patience and may move to another top club in Europe.

There are rumors that Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan are looking forward to signing the English defender.


Marcel Sabitzer

The Austrian midfielder was signed from Bayern Munich on loan until the end of the season.

He was signed as a result of Eriksen’s injury in the Carabao Cup against Reading.

Manchester United may decide not to sign the player on a permanent deal, with Eriksen coming back before the end of the season.
