According to rumors, Erik ten Hag wants Manchester United to add three more players beyond Casemiro before the transfer window closes on September 1. The board is currently engaged in a massive hurry to complete as many deals as possible before the transfer window ends in less than two weeks, which the Dutch tactician will see.

Following United's demoralizing 4-0 loss to Brentford, the club is now reportedly working around the clock on a number of transactions.

With the Brazilian scheduled to undergo surgery, Casemiro appears to be the fourth player to join with the team.

Given that Casemiro is scheduled to get a physical this weekend, the Brazilian appears to be the fourth signing to come through the door.

He will cost the Red Devils about £51 million plus £8.5 million in add-ons, and once he moves to Old Trafford, he will become one of the team's highest earners.

The Independent claims that Ten Hag still wants a second central midfielder, a striker, and a right back when the 30-year-old comes, indicating that United are not content with that.

Frenkie de Jong of Barcelona had been pursued by United, but the transaction now appears unlikely to go through.

The fact that De Jong is still negotiating a potential wage cut hasn't prevented United from dreaming big as they wait for further information on his future.

If De Jong were to leave Catalonia, it's thought that Chelsea would be his top choice, although United do have other targets in mind, notably Sergej Milinkovic-Savic of Lazio.

For United, navigating a crowded market to find a new striker has not been simple.

The team made an offer for Marko Arnautovic before abandoning the move.

Sasa Kalajdzic of Stuttgart and Alvaro Morata, who was offered to the team, have also been taken into consideration as possibilities.

Additionally, Sergino Dest, a right defender for Barcelona, is apparently a target for United.

As talks between the two clubs over a potential loan or permanent deal continue, Aaron Wan-Bissaka may return to Crystal Palace.

Massive United offer of £67 million for Brazilian winger Antony was turned down by Ajax.

Ajax promptly rejected the offer when it was made to the Dutch powerhouses through intermediaries because they do not want to sell.

Earlier in the transfer window, they sold Lisandro Martinez to United, and Sebastien Haller, Noussair Mazraoui, Ryan Gravenberch, and Nicolas Tagliafico have all since left for greener pastures.

In the upcoming months, there may also be exits at United, with Eric Bailly perhaps one of them.
