Man Utd: Confirmed signings and departures in the summer transfer window (2022)


Manchester United were in dire need of a rebuild under Erik ten Hag this summer following a sixth-placed finish and six new arrivals have come through the door.

Ten Hag succeeded former interim manager Ralf Rangnick in late April and had spoken on numerous occasions about signing the “right player”.

United’s first signing under Ten Hag was Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia, who arrived at Old Trafford for £13.5 million.

The young Dutch defender had impressed in the Eredivisie, coming up against Ten Hag’s former side Ajax on numerous occasions.

Malacia has signed a four-year contract.

Free agent Christian Eriksen was the next one to come through the Old Trafford door.

The Dane rejected Brentford for Manchester United despite playing for the Bees in the second half of last season.

The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has signed a three-year deal at United.

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong was the Red Devils’ top target but the Dutchman was determined to stay at the Nou Camp.

United kicked off the campaign with two demoralizing defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford.

The pressure was on for a new midfielder to come through the door but nobody envisioned United signing five-time UEFA Champions League winner Casemiro.

The Brazilian arrived from Real Madrid for £65 million, signing a four-year contract.

Ten Hag’s side also secured a deal for Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, with the Slovakian joining on a season-long loan.

He is expected to rival David De Gea and his loan could become permanent for £5 million at the end of the season.

However, the biggest transfer of Manchester United’s window is the £85.5 million deal to sign Ajax winger Antony.

The Brazilian has been reunited with Ten Hag and has signed a five-year contract.
