(Football news) Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag believes that the Glazers selling the club will be a good thing as it will bring in more investment. The American owners announced that they were considering selling the club last month as they “explore strategic alternatives”. The Dutchman said he was informed about the plan by chief executive Richard Arnold but has reiterated that he has not spoken to the Glazer family.

“There will be more investment possible which is good,” said Ten Hag. “We spoke about the culture we want, we spoke about objectives, goals and the culture and he confirmed it won’t change. It will be even better because more money will become available for this project. There’s a change in circumstances when you compare [the Premier League] with five or 10 years ago.

“The competition is much tougher. Newcastle are coming, even West Ham, maybe not now in the table but they have huge investment. Spurs definitely and I don’t need to talk about City and Liverpool or Chelsea. You can quickly count seven or eight clubs that can compete in this league. It’s also about strategy, not just money. But it’s clear that when you don’t have the right players and quality players you will not be successful and achieve the targets you set.”

The Glazer family bought Manchester United for £790m ($1.34bn) in 2005 and there have been many protests against their ownership since then. According to the results revealed last week, the Glazers didn’t pay themselves a dividend but it has been revealed that the club owe £300m in unpaid transfer fees on various recent deals. A possible takeover will not just bring in some much needed funds to bolster the transfers but also improve some much needed infrastructure, especially for Old Trafford and Carrington training ground.
