Manchester United transfer news, live! Latest reports, rumors, updates

  Manchester United transfer news, live! Latest reports, rumors, updates Manchester United transfer news is always a busy industry in the summer months and this summer will see it at full volume under new manager Erik ten Hag. Again, not great vibes around Ronaldo right now. That said, the report states that ETH could hand Ronaldo the captaincy and wants him to lead a new era at Old Trafford. We have no doubt that Ronaldo will end up in MLS one day, and probably in Miami, but right now it seems like he will remain in Manchester.

The 2022/23 Premier League season will be pivotal both for new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag and the Red Devils as a team.

Having arrived from Ajax in the close-season off the back of winning the Dutch title, Ten Hag is the man who has now been tasked with reviving the fortunes of one of English football's fallen giants.

For so long the dominant force in the Premier League era under the great Sir Alex Ferguson, United have been overshadowed by their Manchester rivals City in recent years.

While Pep Guardiola's side have flourished, and head into the new season looking to complete a title three-peat, United have consistently underwhelmed.

4 challengers look to break Man City-Liverpool stranglehold

  4 challengers look to break Man City-Liverpool stranglehold LONDON (AP) — Maybe the Premier League's “Big Six” should actually be renamed the “Big Two.” Manchester City and Liverpool have finished as England's top two teams in three of the last four years, the exception coming in the 2020-21 season when an injury crisis in defense saw Liverpool only seal a top-four spot on the final day. It has created the highest-quality rivalry ever seen in English soccer, given the points totals the teams push each other to achieve every season.

Last season they finished sixth, a mammoth 35 points behind City and 13 off Tottenham in fourth place and a guaranteed UEFA Champions League spot. Wantaway Cristiano Ronaldo, for one, was far from impressed.

Ten Hag knows that his job likely depends on improving that this campaign. Here are some of the key dates in the English top-flight calendar for United and their new man in charge.

When is Erik Ten Hag's first Man Utd game in the Premier League?

Erik ten Hag will have an immediate chance to show his side's progress in their first game of the new Premier League season.

United will take on Brighton — a team who thrashed the Red Devils 4-0 in May — on Sunday, August 7.

With Haaland, Man City again the team to beat in England

  With Haaland, Man City again the team to beat in England Let's get the bad news out of the way for Manchester City: As it stands, this will be the seventh and final season of Pep Guardiola’s trophy-filled time at the club. Seeing the back of a coach who has taken English soccer to new levels of excellency in his longer-than-expected time at City will be a relief to the rest of the Premier League. Now for all the good news. City returns for the new Premier League season, which starts on Friday, as the reigning champion, the team to beat once again and having been reinforced by the signing of one of the world’s best players.

The former Ajax boss then takes his side to Brentford six days later, which presents a winnable first away fixture against one of the teams considered at risk of relegation during the 2022/23 Premier League season.

United lost 5-0 at home to Liverpool in 2021/22, and Ten Hag will lead his side against a fellow 'Big Six' team for the first time when Jurgen Klopp's men visit Old Trafford on August 22.

United host Arsenal in September and travel to Manchester City and Chelsea in October.

Man Utd Premier League schedule 2022/23

In addition to the near month-long break for the FIFA World Cup (Nov. 14-Dec. 18), there will be two FIFA international breaks: Sept. 19-27, 2022 and March 20-28, 2023.

A total of 16 Premier League matchdays will be played before the FIFA World Cup break, and the remaining 22 following the World Cup.

Man United’s ten Hag: Ronaldo’s Early Friendly Exit ‘Unacceptable’

View the original article to see embedded media. If it wasn’t clear before that Cristiano Ronaldo wants out at Manchester United, his early exit during Sunday’s friendly added to the speculation.

Erik ten Hag on Manchester United loss, Ronaldo’s fitness and future

  Erik ten Hag on Manchester United loss, Ronaldo’s fitness and future "It's a real disappointment and we have to deal with it," Ten Hag said. "I knew it wouldn't be easy. It takes time. We don't have time. We have to win."“Definitely a setback,” Ten Hag said after the loss, which stood as 2-0 at the break.

Erik Ten Hag record vs. the Premier League 'Big Six'

Ten Hag has faced three teams in the Premier League 'Big Six' already during his managerial career, establishing a respectable record while overseeing Ajax in two epic contests with top English teams.

Perhaps the most memorable was Ajax's remarkable 2018/19 UEFA Champions League semifinal against Tottenham, when his team impressively won 1-0 in London in the first leg, only to be knocked out in astonishing style.

Ajax built a 3-0 aggregate lead in the second leg in Amsterdam to put themselves firmly on course for a final against Liverpool before Lucas Moura's second-half hat-trick, completed in the 96th minute, gave Spurs victory on away goals.

An extraordinary group-stage game at Chelsea the following season saw Ajax go 4-1 ahead before the hosts earned a 4-4 draw, helped by Daley Blind and Joel Veltman's second-half dismissals within two minutes of each other.

Only an 86th-minute Michy Batshuayi goal had given Chelsea victory at the Johan Cruijff ArenA, and Ajax twice lost 1-0 to Liverpool in the group stage of the 2020/21 season.

  Brentford vs Manchester United, live! Score, updates, how to watch, stream Brentford vs Manchester United should be a brilliant game in west London on Saturday as the pressure is, once again, cranking up on the Red Devils. STREAM LIVE BRENTFORD v MANCHESTER UNITED Erik ten Hag lost his first Premier League game in charge of United, as the 2-1 defeat at home to Brighton laid bare all of the issues the Dutch coach is trying to solve. United were all over the place defensively, had little creativity in midfield and lacked cutting edge up top. That is a lot to try and sort out whilst at the same time trying to usher in a new possession-based style and sign new players to fit that system.
