Bavaria Bound: Four Players Erik Ten Hag Could Bring to Bayern Munich – Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is reportedly being targeted by Bayern Munich. He will definitely need additional players if he joins the German giants next summer.

Tuchel is certain to part ways with Bayern at the end of this season. The German coach left earlier than his contract which was due to run until 2025.

A number of coaches’ names are on Bayern’s target list. However, Xabi Alonso and Ralf Rangnick have rejected the offer to train at the Allianz Arena.

Now Bayern is reportedly targeting Ten Hag to replace Tuchel. According to Sky Germany, the Die Roten camp has held talks with representatives of the former Ajax Amsterdam coach.

There is no guarantee that Manchester United will part ways with Ten Hag at the end of this season. However, Ten Hag could immediately take over Bayern if the opportunity was open.

Ten Hag definitely needs additional ammunition if he is trusted to coach at Bayern. Therefore, he might be able to recruit a number of players to the German club.

Here are four players that Erik Ten Hag might recruit if he takes over at Bayern Munich.

Kobbie Mainoo would be Erik Ten Hag’s dream signing. The Dutch coach has turned the teenager into a star at Manchester United this season.

Ten Hag firmly believes in Mainoo’s potential. He included the young midfielder in the senior squad and was able to show quite good performance on the field.

However, Manchester United is unlikely to let Mainoo leave this summer. He is under contract at Old Trafford until 2030.

Alejandro Garnacho is another young Manchester United star who has developed under the guidance of Erik Ten Hag this season. He has established himself as a key player for the Red Devils.

This winger from Argentina has scored nine goals and five assists in all competitions. Garncho’s contract at Old Trafford still runs until 2028.

Manchester United are reportedly willing to sell most of their squad this summer. However, it is not easy to get Garnacho out of the Red Devils.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong over the past few years. However, the Red Devils were never able to complete his recruitment.

De Jong is reportedly not interested in moving to England. However, the story might be different if Erik Ten Hag tries to sign De Jong at Bayern Munich next season.

De Jong and Ten Hag once worked together at Ajax Amsterdam. The midfielder played a big role in taking the Dutch giants to the Champions League semi-finals in 2019.

Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong is emerging as one of Europe’s hottest talents. He has helped Xabi Alonso’s team win their first Bundesliga title.

Thanks to his good performance, Frimpong is reportedly admired by Manchester United. Erik Ten Hag is said to be a big fan of the Manchester City academy product.

However, a move to Bayern Munich seems to make more sense for Frimpong. He already lives in Germany and does not need to move to another country if he decides to change clubs.
