​Man Utd manager ten Hag focusing on forward signing after De Jong, Malacia deals

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is moving swiftly through his transfer targets.

The Dutch coach is hoping to reunite with his old Ajax star Frenkie de Jong, if United can secure the midfielder from Barcelona.

United are also closing in on a deal for Dutch left-back Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord.

According to The Mirror, the Premier League will now turn their attention to the forward positions, as they look to add competition for the right-wing and central striker positions.

Ajax's Brazilian winger Antony is a target for the Red Devils, but the Dutch club want up to £70 million for his signature.

United are not willing to pay much more than £40 million for Antony.
