Manchester United to release the big bucks in January

Manchester United director of football John Murtough says money will be available for January.

The Red Devils have made six signings this summer under Erik ten Hag, bringing in Antony, Casemiro, Martin Dubravka, Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez. Meanwhile, 28 players have left the club, 12 of them on loan.

Speaking on a call to discuss Man United’s financial performance on Thursday, Murtough explained that while Ten Hag will continue to receive support from the club, he will have less money to dish out in January.

“Over the summer we have made a significant investment in the first team with the permanent addition of five starters, including a balance of experienced international players and emerging young talent,” he said. .

“We’ve also seen a higher number of departures than usual, and that’s been an equally important part of refreshing the team after the disappointing 2021/22 season.

“We will continue to support Erik by ensuring he has players with the quality and character needed to succeed, while ensuring that the investment remains in line with our commitment to financial sustainability.”

“Overall, we are ahead of our recruiting plans as envisioned at the start of the summer, and we do not anticipate the same level of activity in future windows. As always, our planning is focused on the summer window.
