Despite Ten Hag’s skepticism of the Man Utd player, a crucial contract provision has been confirmed.

A Manchester United player who went out on loan over the summer has said he will return to Old Trafford next season, but he will have a tough time convincing Erik ten Hag to change his mind.

In the last days of the summer transfer window, the Red Devils experienced a minor left-back position problem.

Luke Shaw suffered a muscular injury that might keep him out for as long as two months. Tyrell Malacia was also in the treatment area, thus Ten Hag had no reliable alternatives.

Additionally, Brandon Williams was permitted to sign a loan agreement with Ipswich Town, leaving Alvaro Fernandez as Ten Hag’s lone left-back specialist.

The United manager was urged by Robbie Savage to give Fernandez a chance. The 2020 Real Madrid youth recruit from Spain impressed while on loan at Preston North End.

But Ten Hag and Manchester United decided to go after a more seasoned player with a loan bid for Tottenham’s.

Fernandez affirms the return to Old Trafford.

However, Fernandez acknowledged that a crucial provision in his loan agreement is absent when he spoke during his formal debut at Granada on Thursday.

Loans frequently include an option or obligation to purchase something. The left-back, however, said that Man Utd categorically refused to incorporate one despite Granada’s best efforts to do so.

Fernandez affirmed, “Manchester United rejected it and no deal was achieved.

Though Ten Hag’s initial lack of confidence implies he still has some way to go before becoming a firmly established member of the first squad, this choice suggests Man Utd do believe Fernandez has a future at Old Trafford.
