United chiefs pushed the boat out to allow Ten Hag to sign Casemiro and Antony following defeats in the first two Prem games.
Four wins later and United enter Sunday's derby at Manchester City in fifth place after six matches.
But it's claimed Ten Hag would like to go for more in the transfer market than club bosses want.
And Ten Hag recently said: “We have many meetings - we have to improve the structures in and around the club and we will also look to the window in January or next summer already."
But United have publicly insisted spending on players will be LESS in the next transfer window than the last one.
