Manchester United’s back to back Premier League wins haven’t deterred Erik ten Hag’s desire to bring in more players before the close of the window.
The Red Devils recorded a 1-0 win over Southampton, ending their dreadful form away from home. Akin to their Liverpool victory, gathering all three points wasn’t an easy affair for Ten Hag’s men, who defended well, but struggled to maintain possession all afternoon.
David de Gea did make a couple of good saves, but his lack of quality on the ball forced United to yet again play long and contest for second balls rather than keeping the possession of the ball and building from the back.
Incidentally, hours after the match, Fabrizio Romano has reported that United have agreed personal terms with Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.
The Dutch boss is keen on bringing a new shot-stopper to challenge his current No 1, leading to United opening talks with Newcastle for a loan move of their second choice goalkeeper.
It is thought that United want to loan Dubravka and include a £5m buy option in the deal. But the Magpies have asked for a permanent transfer. The 33-year-old is keen to join Ten Hag’s side, and is hoping for the move to materialise.
