Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag confirms signing Cristiano Ronaldo’s replacement in January transfer window

Erik ten Hag is beginning to turn the tides for Manchester United after a difficult start to the ongoing Premier League season, thanks to a 3-0 win against Nottingham Forest at the restart following the World Cup and also the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, who was a constant source of despair for the United manager.

Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo’s reunion did not go as planned, with the  Theatre of Dreams being turned into captivity for the legendary footballer, thankfully the settlement finally came to a conclusion and there will be no more saga for a long time.

Ten Hag previously stated that they can play f****** beautiful football. On a rainy, cold Manchester night, United demonstrated how to develop a gorgeous football game, and it was a treat to watch them play slick football.

Anthony Martial scored a beautiful goal after Rashford brought the opening, and both players were so influential on the pitch, however, injury is what United fans fear the most about the former record signing, Martial.

The man in charge is already familiar with that issue, and the departure of Ronaldo induces another vulnerability in the central striker position, with less backup, potentially leading to an impactful winter signing, as indicated by the manager during the post-match show.

There are few options that United could exploit as another reunion with Barcelona player Memphis Depay is undoubtedly on the cards.

Ten Hag took over as manager of the Devils at the start of the new season and struggled in his first two games, while Ronaldo was looking for new destinations and refusing multiple invitations from the new boss, eventually pushing the five-time Ballon D’or winner out of manager’s favor causing huge chaos prior to the World Cup.

With Ronaldo gone, it is expected that the United boss will be motivating his boys after the ruthless performance, which was very much needed indeed for Rashford and his teammates to boost their confidence.

A marquee signing could change Manchester United’s destiny, and Erik Ten Hag is determined to bring in a proper number nine who can fit into his system.
