Things are looking up for Manchester United at the minute after a series of wins after the World Cup – but they still haven’t got the money to sign Jude Bellingham or Kylian Mbappe.

Erik ten Hag’s side have won every game they have played in since returning from the World Cup break and are looking ahead to a strong second half of the season.

The club are still looking for a few signings to strengthen ahead of the second part of the campaign but aren’t in the best financial position to make major transfers.

Fan approach Ten Hag with transfer ideas

Ten Hag was in his car when he was approached by a few Manchester United fans for autographs, to which he obliged and stopped his car.

One fan asked, “Erik, do you think you’re going to sign Jude Bellingham…or Mbappe?” to which the Dutch head coach replied, “I want to.”

Another fan then added “Why don’t you get both?” and then Ten Hag jokingly said, “Have you got some pennies for me?” implying that Manchester United didn’t have the financial strength to pull the deals off.

The fan was then appreciative of Ten Hag’s work, saying, “You keep doing what you’re doing and we’ll put in the pennies,” to which the coach shared a smile.

Mbappe and Bellingham are two of the world’s best young players and will be expensive to sign for any club, as evident by the prices thrown for the English midfielder.

Bellingham is linked with a move away in the summer transfer window with the likes of Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea linked along with Manchester United, and he will cost upwards of €120 million.
