Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has provided an update on the future of two of his players, Jonny Evans and Raphael Varane. Despite rumors of their potential departures, Ten Hag insists that no decisions have been made regarding their futures. This includes discussions about new contracts, with Ten Hag stating, “We haven’t made the decision yet.” Furthermore, Ten Hag commented on the ambition of the club’s incoming INEOS hierarchy, particularly highlighting reported plans to build a new venue to rival notable stadiums such as Wembley, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and the Emirates Stadium.
While acknowledging the ambition, Ten Hag emphasized that his focus lies on managing the team and rebuilding the squad rather than dealing with stadium and facility matters. In their upcoming match against Aston Villa, Manchester United will aim to narrow the gap on the fourth-placed side. However, they face this challenge with an injury list that has been compounded by Lisandro Martinez’s knee injury, which is expected to sideline the center-back for up to two months following the previous weekend’s victory over West Ham.
