Manchester United spent around £229million in strengthening the squad during the summer transfer window as the club seeked to back Erik ten Hag in his first transfer window as Manchester United boss.

Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, Antony and Martin Dubravka were all signed by the club this summer.

After spending £229million on new signings in the summer, Manchester United chief John Murtough has announced the club does not “anticipate the same level of activity in future windows”. In other words, it is likely the purse strings will be tightened for the foreseeable future.

According to The Athletic, Manchester United boss Ten Hag was essentially given two summer budgets in one go to make the additions he needed to steer United back into the Champions League.
