Manchester United suffered a shocking defeat at the weekend against Aston Villa and without Fernandes, the lack of creativity was evident for Ten Hag’s men.
The Red Devils need a creative central midfielder, they have not replaced record signing, Paul Pogba as yet and the latest reports are intriguing.
Florian Plettenberg has confirmed that Jude Bellingham is Man Utd’s priority target and they expect him to cost around 150 million euros (£131million).
The famous journalist claims that the Old Trafford outfit have observed the England international a lot and Ten Hag wants to secure his signing.
However, it is stated that chances of luring the 19-year-old midfielder are low due to FFP rules and the presence of big clubs like Liverpool and Manchester City.
At the moment, the Red Devils do not have a single central midfielder who can regularly score and create goals. Signing someone like Bellingham will solve that dilemma.
The Dortmund starlet directly contributed in twenty goals last term and this time around, he has already directly contributed in over ten goals for the German Bundesliga side.
In the current midfield, Eriksen is yet to find the net and the likes of Casemiro, Fred and McTominay have scored one goal each under Erik ten Hag.
We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming months and will keep you updated.
