Incoming Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is convinced by the potential of the club's young players.

The 52-year-old believes that alongside new signings, the core of young talent at the club provide a fantastic opportunity for improvement.

The Mirror says Ten Hag believes Anthony Elanga, Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho hold the key to a revival for United.

The belief from the Dutchman may not come as a surprise when looking at his track record at Ajax.

Ten Hag oversaw the development of European stars Frenkie de Jong and Mattijs de Ligt, bringing in over £150million for the Dutch champions from their sales.

The Dutchman, who secured his third Eredivisie title with a 5-0 win over Heerenveen, also believes the squad he is leaving in Holland has set the club up for a prosperous future.

He said: “There is a massive amount of capital on the pitch. Ajax will sell players for at least another 100 million Euros this summer.''

However, the new boss still believes recruitment is required if the Red Devils are to look to contend in England again.
