Erik ten Hag believes Manchester United need to add to their striking options in January to ensure they have enough cover for the busy second half of the campaign.

Manchester United has revealed that the club desperately needs a striker in the team after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford.

The former Ajax manager believes that the fixtures ahead is hectic and insists players needs to come in.

With a fixture rush coming as clubs make up for lost time after the World Cup, the United boss is keen to bolster his numbers.

“I think we have a squad, we have players who are matching our criteria,” Ten Hag said. “But all the games are coming.

“It’s a tough competition, in all the leagues, we want to be also in all the leagues and keep playing in all the leagues and in the cups as well.

“So we need players and we need numbers to cover. So we need good players, not just the numbers, we need quality players to cover. And also we need competition and we need to know also that we can make tactical choices.

“So we are looking for the right player for our squad, but it has to match our sporting criteria, definitely, but also some financial criteria.

“In the offensive department, we need players coming from the bench to have an impact on the game – whether you need a goal, or save when you are leading, you can go for counter-attacks or, at least, keep the win on your side.”
