And, in the summer transfer window of 2019, United again spent big with Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James all recruited.
Though they were more frugal in 2020 due to the pandemic, the Norwegian also received lavish backing last summer.
United forked out £73m on Jadon Sancho, bringing a four-year transfer saga to an end in the process, while Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo also touched down.
Now, it’ll be interesting to see what United decide with Ten Hag as they approach one of the biggest summers in recent history.
Antony, Declan Rice and Manuel Akanji are some of the players being linked amid uncertainty over their Ajax, West Ham and Dortmund futures.
And United are also likely to lose some of their big names, too, with Pogba, Bailly, Donny van de Beek, Dean Henderson, Edinson Cavani and Nemanja Matic all linked with moves away.
