Manchester United were linked with several quality attackers in the summer transfer window and in the end, Ten Hag managed to sign his favorite, Antony.
Fabrizio Romano has recently revealed that a number of players were offered to the Red Devils, who were desperate to strengthen the offense last month.
The renowned Italian journalist said on his Youtube channel.
“Carrasco was offered to Manchester United – only on a permanent deal, not on loan – Man United wanted to focus on something different.”
“Christian Pulisic was discussed between Man United and Chelsea but in that case, Man United decided to try for a loan and Chelsea had no intention to accept a loan deal.“
Pulisic, who earns around £158,000 a week (The Sun), mainly warmed the bench under Thomas Tuchel and this term, so far, he has only started one game in the Premier League.
Will things change under new manager, Graham Potter? We shall see.
On the other hand, as per a report covered by Marca last month, Atletico had no intensions to sell Carrasco and Man Utd threatened to activate the £52million clause in his contract.
In the current campaign, the Belgian international has started three games in the La Liga under Diego Simeone and scored one goal, which he scored in the 4-1 victory over Celta Vigo at the weekend.
In the end, Man United secured the signing of Antony from Ajax. The Brazilian international was highly impressive in his debut as he scored against league leaders Arsenal to help Ten Hag’s team earn all three points.
