2 min read

Ajax boss ten Hag is favourite United job and has already started to make plans for his Old Trafford backroom staff.

Erik ten Hag has sounded out Robin van Persie about returning to Manchester United as part of his backroom staff.

Ten Hag is already putting plans in place should United appoint him manager in the summer. 

And he wants to take Van Persie back to Old Trafford with him.

The Ajax boss started informal talks with the former Dutch striker, who scored 26 goals and won the Golden Boot when United last won the title under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013. 

RVP is currently taking his coaching badges and working with the Under-16s team in Feyenoord’s Academy.

But Ten Hag believes the Dutchman’s knowledge of United would be invaluable if the Reds decide to take him from Ajax at the end of the season.

Van Persie is tempted by the prospect of working in the Premier League again. 

United believed they would have to pay just under £5million as compensation for the final 12 months of Ten Hag’s contract once they lodged an official approach. 

But Mirror Sport revealed that Ten Hag inserted a get-out clause in the deal he signed a year ago – and that it can be triggered for just €2million (£1.68million).

United have now spoken to Ajax boss Ten Hag, Pochettino and Spain boss Luis Enrique They are yet to table contractual terms to any of the candidates.
