Erik Ten Hag agrees three-year deal to become Man United manager with an announcement planned next week.

Erik ten Hag has agreed to a three-year deal to become Manchester United’s next manager, with the deal being “99 percent” finalised.

After the Dutch Cup final on Sunday, the 52-year-old will be announced as the new manager at Old Trafford next week.

The contract will include a fourth-year option, which will be favored by United. 

The only thing that appears to be missing are the final signatures, which are thought to be a formality.

According to sources close to the negotiations, the paperwork for the move is already being processed, and “all is now agreed,” they stated firmly.

Following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November, United have chosen Ten Hag as their first-choice manager, ahead of Mauricio Pochettino, who had been the clear favourite.

Last week, Ten Hag’s personal conditions were promptly agreed upon, while the framework under which he will work at the club is still being worked out.

Ten Hag has never demanded complete control over transfers, having never had it at any of the clubs he has coached, and he is content working alongside a director of football, contrary to popular belief.

Contrary to suggestion s Ten Hag has never demanded full control on transfers, having never had that at any of the clubs he has coached, and he is comfortable working with a director of football.

Ten Hag does want to have a significant say in signings and departures which is not a problem at United who granted all their previous managers the right to veto any deal. Sources have been angered by reports that he is demanding more than this.

Ten Hag has also been keen for United to outline how they see the club operating once he arrives and this is likely to include the role offered to Ralf Rangnick, who will step down as interim managerat the end of the season.
