Erik ten Hag warns against the takeover of Manchester United, citing Chelsea’s difficulties as an indication.

According to manager Erik ten Hag, Manchester United should use Chelsea’s troubles as a lesson before taking control.

Todd Boehly took over Chelsea last summer, and in just two transfer windows, the club has spent more than £600 million.

The Blues, who are now in 12th position, have had a terrible season and will undoubtedly finish with the fewest points ever scored in a Premier League season.

Ten Hag’s United team will play Chelsea at Old Trafford on Thursday. “You have to do the right things,” Ten Hag advised.

The Glazer family stated in November that they were “exploring strategic alternatives” and were thinking about selling United.

The two primary buyers of the Old Trafford club are Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s Ineos Group and Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani.

“You can have money, but you have to do it and spend it smartly and you need to have a strategy behind it – otherwise the money doesn’t work,” the Dutchman Ten Hag continued.

“At this time, the finest players, managers, and financial resources are all concentrated in the UK. This results in a fantastic competition that is also challenging and difficult.

“I believe the Premier League has a lot more really strong teams,”


According to data from March, United owed £969.6 million in total debt, including gross debt, bank borrowings, and unpaid transfer fees and related obligations.

According to Transfermarkt data, United has spent a total of 405 million euros ($352.24 million) during the last three seasons.

These signings featured players like forward Jadon Sancho and midfielder Donny van de Beek, who have underperformed since leaving Ajax and Borussia Dortmund, respectively.

Ten Hag’s team needs one point from their next two games to guarantee a spot in the Champions League for the upcoming campaign. “I think we are in a good direction, but we can also learn from this season,” he continued.

“After the season, we must assess that and draw the appropriate conclusions for the future, and that is exactly what we will do.”
