Transfer deadline: Man Utd board blocked Ten Hag from signing Chelsea star

Manchester United board reportedly prohibited manager Erik ten Hag’s plans to sign Chelsea forward Hakim Ziyech during the summer transfer window.

Man United spent a massive £214million during the summer window as Ten Hag set about transforming the squad.

The loan signing of Martin Dubravka on deadline day completed Man United’s business following the arrivals of Antony, Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, and Tyrell Malacia.

However, according to the Manchester Evening News (MEN), one player whom Ten Hag was not allowed to bring to Old Trafford was Ziyech.

However, it is claimed that Ziyech was only a ‘back-up option’, most likely to Antony.

Antony’s £84million transfer to Man United from Ajax was completed on deadline day to make him the second most expensive signing in the club’s history behind Paul Pogba.

Meanwhile, Ten Hag coached Ziyech during their time at Ajax.
