Man Utd manager ten Hag changes striker plans after Darwin Nunez failure

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has changed his transfer approach following Darwin Nunez's move to Liverpool.

Ten Hag was keen on signing Nunez from Benfica before the Uruguayan agreed a £64m switch to Anfield.

The 22-year-old was viewed as a long-term replacement for veteran striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

But with like-for-like replacements now hard to come by, ten Hag is changing his plans.

ESPN reports that the Dutchman now wants to sign a 'versatile' forward who can play across the front line.

Ajax winger Antony is a target for United, but the Premier League club are unwilling to meet their £68m price-tag.

The Red Devils are closing in on the signing of Frenkie De Jong, while Christian Eriksen may also join a free transfer.
