Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United side will have a new look ahead of the upcoming 2022/2023 season, as he implements a new style, signing players to fit his system.

The most recent campaign was a disaster for United, who missed out on Champions League football and got nowhere near a trophy, while their former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked halfway through the season.

Perhaps the biggest departure is Paul Pogba, who spent six years in Manchester, and left to join Juventus on a free transfer. United paid Juventus a then-world record fee back in 2016, who has left United to join Juventus on a free transfer for the second time in his career.

Out of the eight departures, United have received money for just one, but would have heavily reduced the wage bill.

Here is the full list of the Manchester United departures, including the transfer fee that the club received:

  • Andreas Pereira - Fulham - £8.5 million
  • Paul Pogba - Juventus - Free transfer
  • Jesse Lingard - Nottingham Forest - Free transfer
  • Nemanja Matic - Roma - Free transfer
  • Dean Henderson - Nottingham Forest - Loan
  • Edinson Cavani - Released
  • Juan Mata - Released
  • Lee Grant - Retired

The Red Devils have wasted little time signing new players to push them into Champions League contention, and to fit ten Haag’s system.

He signed Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord, who is a left-back, who ten Haag will know well from his time in the Eredivisie.

He also snapped up Lisandro Martinez for just over £50 million, with ten Haag also familiar with the 5”9 centre back as he was his manager for a number of years.

A key problem at United was creativity, which should no longer be an issue after the signing of Christian Eriksen.
