- Erik ten Hag has struggled to bring in the players he wants at Old Trafford
- Manchester United have made just three new signings so far this window
- Frustrations have risen following back-to-back Premier League defeats
- United suffered a miserable 4-0 defeat at Brentford which leaves them bottom
Erik ten Hag is furious with how Manchester United have conducted their summer transfer business.
It has been a disastrous start to the Dutchman’s reign at the club both on and off the pitch. They are bottom of the Premier League after losing their first two games of the season, while Ten Hag have struggled to bring in the players they want.
The Mirror have reported that Ten Hag and his advisers are furious at how he has been let down in the transfer market, as well as the saga surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the club, which has proved an unwanted distraction.

United have been able to sign full-back Tyrell Malacia, midfielder Christian Eriksen and centre-back Lisandro Martinez, but the club have struggled to land other targets.
Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong has been their main target this summer, although the Dutch international could miss out on Premier League rivals Chelsea.
Ten Hag are believed to have been promised the club would bring in five new players this summer, but time is running out before the transfer window closes on September 1.

The saga surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford has been an unwelcome distraction
United have now been linked with Stuttgart’s Austrian striker Sasa Kalajdzic, although he is well down the Ten Hag’s list of targets, according to The Mirror.
The 25-year-old has scored 24 goals and provided 10 assists in his 55 games for the German side.
Ronaldo’s future at the club has been a distraction after expressing his desire to leave earlier this summer.
The Portuguese superstar wanted out of Old Trafford after failing to qualify for the Champions League, but is likely to stay, with a lack of viable clubs able – or willing – to sign him.
Ronaldo made his first start of the season on Saturday against Brentford after missing most of pre-season.

United produced a woeful display as they were comfortably thrashed 4-0 by Brentford, leaving them bottom of the table for the first time since 1992.
He has been linked with other United players who have not been welcomed by the fans.
Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic move was met with fan backlash, while fans have also expressed concern over the signing of Adrien Rabiot from Juventus.
United hope to seal a £15m deal for Rabiot, but the move has stalled over wage negotiations.
United’s season could get worse before it gets better as they play Liverpool at Old Trafford on August 22.
Frustration at the club’s lack of signings has led to further backlash from fans against the Glazers, with further protests against the American owners expected before they play Jurgen Klopp’s side.
