Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes have also expressed their concerns with the situation
So far this summer United have brought in Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen and Tyrell Malacia.
However, further reinforcements are evidently required, especially in midfield, which has been a problem area for United for a considerable amount of time.
Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong has been heavily linked with United but a deal has yet to come to fruition.
Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw are also part of the group that have spoken to the club
Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot has emerged as a target for ten Hag’s side.
United have lost a host of players, including Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.
The next task for United sees them host Liverpool, and another defeat would only add to the feelings of discontent surrounding the club.
