Ten Hag: Man Utd denied striker signing by PSR

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag says he wanted to sign a striker in the winter transfer window but was unable to due to the Premier League's Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

United did not make any signings in January despite forward Anthony Martial undergoing groin surgery. 

Ten Hag said: "It's not a secret, I wanted a striker because with the injury to Martial we don't really have a backup. It was not possible because we had to match the FFP (financial fair play) rules.

"To make space for FFP you have to sell players, good players. I don't think that's how you build a team."

On the alternative options to play up front, Ten Hag said: "We have Omari (Forson), we have Amad Diallo. 

"We have Rashford who can play there. But I think for the rest, all the positions are occupied. We have to be a little bit creative, it’s up to the No.9 position."
