Ten Hag refused to discuss individual targets but is adamant he is on the same page as the club with regard to potential signings.
And, asked by BBC Sport whether he expected to have a stronger and more rounded squad when the transfer window closes on 1 September than he has now, he said: “We have to. I am convinced we will have.”
That may not appease some fans, who feel their club is being left further behind by the rest of England’s top clubs.
But Ten Hag is adamant a sense of panic outside Old Trafford is not being felt by those within the club.
“When Manchester United is not performing and not winning, that’s normal,” he said. “I would be more in panic when there wasn’t panic because we have to win. That is the demand.
“Still, panic isn’t the right word. It’s more like, ‘come on, we have to act’. We have to think bright and do the right things.”

PSG want him as a forward to come and strengthen the attacking line. He is the player they want, but I don’t think they will let him go and I think he will be happy to stay at Manchester United.
It was interesting from PSG to move to someone like him. It is not strange because he is talented but he has been out of form for 18 months and would need to relaunch his career.
It could be partly the agent game, but PSG asked the agent to come and meet them. They met, they discussed positions and contracts, which means there was a positive response from the Rashford entourage. We also know Rashford and Kylian Mbappe are quite good friends.
