MANCHESTER UNITED could have a new look after the January window if they make some shrewd additions.
Erik ten Hag has warned United will not “burn money” but he could try and capture a couple of targets he missed out on in the summer.

One of those is Frenkie de Jong, who turned down the opportunity to move to Old Trafford in the previous transfer window.
Barcelona accepted a £71.5million bid for the midfielder but he was determined to stay in Catalonia.
However reports now claim the Dutchman is open to a switch to United following the club’s resurgent form under his former manager, Erik ten Hag.
De Jong, 25, could slot into the Red Devils midfield alongside Casemiro, who has impressed since his summer arrival from Real Madrid.
And United could have a fresh attack if two January targets join before the window closes.
United like the look of Atletico Madrid striker Joao Felix and have been monitoring his situation since the summer.
Arsenal and Chelsea are also interested in signing the 23-year-old but Atletico are looking to recoup the £113m they spent on him in 2019.
The LaLiga giants could be open to a loan move but would reportedly demand a fee of at least £8m, with United also having to cover the Portugal star’s wages.
