Manchester United brought in a total of five players in the previous transfer window and all have been successful so far. However, there is still much work to be done on the squad, with holes still remaining.

There is a clear style that is associated with Erik Ten Hag teams, which includes players who are comfortable in possession and good at keeping the ball.

That goes for the goalkeepers, too, and there are some doubts for some over whether or not current first choice David De Gea fits that mould.
