Ajax chief Eric ten Hague faces tough task to restore Manchester United to former glory when he takes power in summer

Eric the Hague is facing the collapse of the midfield as he hits a wall in a bid to strengthen his new one Manchester United detachment.

Ten Hague has identified a host of summer goals as it prepares to embark on its big renovation job at Old Trafford. The Dutchman will take office in June when he will replace the interim chief Ralf Rangnick and wants to get started when it comes to finding new talent.

Nemanja Matić has confirmed that he will leave United together with Jesse Lingard and Juan Mato, while Paul Pogba is also heading for the exit and wants to ensure a return to Juventus.

But as he was the first to report Daily Star, The Hague’s plans to bring in reinforcements have been left in chaos – with three of its targets all rejecting the potential to switch to fallen giants this summer. Ten Hague has put people like Jude Bellingham, Calvin Phillips and Declan Rice on its search list, but it looks like it will miss them all.

Borussia Dortmund told United to forget to lure English ace Bellingham to Old Trafford because the German club is not ready to sell him after leaving Erling Haaland to Manchester City this summer. Leeds star Phillips, meanwhile, has no intention of joining United’s bitter rivals over the hatred that exists between the two clubs. And to make matters worse, Rice hinted that he would stay Western ham next season and there is no interest in going to United until the club is in Champions League.

Ten Hague is also a fan of Lazio’s Sergej Milinković-Savić, but the Italian club told United that he is not for sale. That means Ten The Hague is back to square one in its attempts to gather new talent in the middle as it begins to reveal the cost of United’s failure to secure Champions League qualifiers.

One player who could play under Ten Hague is former Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek, currently on loan at Everton, who will reunite with his old boss. Van de Beek has found limited opportunities under the former United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and interim successor to Rangnick, but former United defender Jaap Stam reckons he will be welcome back in his arms over the summer.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham is one of the midfielders associated with the transfer to Manchester United

“I think Donny is a good player,” Stam told United’s website. “We saw him in the Netherlands and when he was at United he didn’t always have a chance to play. I don’t know why, for some reason, it’s hard to say from the outside that this is it, but as far as I understand and know, for a player to produce and work well, he has to have other players around him who can produce it and bring it to a certain level. it is then easier to strengthen oneself.

“If you decide with the players who are already there and who you will keep at the club and who you will bring: is it perfectly in line with how you want to play on the left, right, middle, forward? Have that ideal partnership, basically, work well and achieve results.

“It could be possible that Donny, when he returns, will play next season, but for him it is very important who he will play with in the midfield, for example, if he will play there. It is for him, but it is also for 10 or 15 other players, maybe the same situation. ”
