As per Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News, a tier-two source, Erik ten Hag is not done with transfers in the summer window right now.
After bringing in Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, and Lisandro Martinez, the Dutch boss is reportedly eyeing three more signings.
Ten Hag wants another midfielder and a forward – presumably Frenkie de Jong and Antony. However, Barcelona’s refusal to pay De Jong’s €17 million wages has complicated the deal further.
Frenkie himself is believed to be keen on staying at Barca even if it means taking a wage cut and playing as a center-back. With Jules Kounde the latest player to be signed by Barcelona though, it remains to be seen where De Jong stands.

As for Antony, he wants to join United but Ajax are unwilling to let him go for anything less than €100 million.
Meanwhile, Ten Hag would also like to recruit a back-up goalkeeper following loan moves for Dean Henderson, Matej Kovar and Nathan Bishop.
Luckhurst doesn’t mention if Ten Hag has back-ups in mind if deals for Antony and De Jong do not work out before the window slams shut.
