In addition to playing a key role in negotiating players’ contracts, SEG also reportedly provides informal advice on the transfer market. The report even states that Ten Hag’s son Nigel works as an analyst for the agency. SEG handled Manchester United’s transfers during the summer window when the Red Devils spent around £178 million on four new players – Rasmus Højlund, Mason Mount, Andre Onan and Altay Bayindir. In addition, midfielder Sofiane Amrabat was acquired on loan in the summer transfer window.
SEG’s recent moves to Manchester United include the acquisition of Danish striker Rasmus Højlund, the completion of Sofiane Amrabat’s loan deal from Fiorentina and the departure of midfielder Zidane Iqbal to Dutch club Utrecht. According to the Daily Mail, sources within Manchester United have said it is not unusual for clubs to have close ties with one particular agency.
Despite spending big in the summer transfer window, MonkGester United have yet to boast an impressive performance this season. In five Premier League matches, they have picked up just two wins. Erik ten Hag’s side are 13th in the Premier League standings with just six points. Manchester United suffered a 1-3 defeat to Brighton in their last match.
This season Manchester United have suffered three defeats in their first five Premier League games for the first time since 1989-90. There are things from the team and individuals that need to step up. Sometimes there are bad periods, difficult periods, and you have to accept and deal with that. At the moment we are not coping too well, but we can do what we showed last year. We can’t blame anyone else, we have to perform better and be more determined, more resilient, Ten Hag was quoted as saying by AP news agency ahead of his team’s Champions League match. 147
