Erik Ten Hag "Challenges" Jose Mourinho To A Fight; World Cup Midfielder Is The Grand Prize

Even though United's midfield is stronger than it has been in years thanks to the additions of Casemiro and Eriksen in the summer, there is speculation that Ten Hag is still looking to strengthen it. Ten Hag is looking for a technically gifted midfielder who can play possession football. Notably, Frankie de Jong is this type of midfielder; we all know how hard United tried but failed to sign the Dutchman.They instead signed Casemiro, but there's no denying that Casemiro and De Jong are two very different types of midfielders.

According to We All Follow United, Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic is gradually becoming Ten Hag's preferred midfield target. Sasa has impressed in the Qatar World Cup, setting up a battle between Ten Hag and Mourinho for his signature. To land the 26-year-old, United may only have Mourinho as a threat, as Torino may be forced to sell him on the cheap next year due to his contract expiring in 2024.

Do you believe Sasa will crown Ten Hag's United midfield rebuild? His Serie A highlights below may assist you in making your decision.
