Manchester United target Erik Ten Hag tells Ajax he wants to leave at end of the season

Erik Ten Hag has reportedly told Ajax he wants to leave at the end of the season amid links with Manchester United.

The Mail reported that: “Ajax are understood to be aware of Ten Hag’s intention to leave the club at the end of the season following recent internal talks.”

It is also claimed the Ajax boss is working hard on his English and ‘has his heart set on Manchester United’.

He is also keen to bring assistant Mitchell van der Gaag with him to Old Trafford.

This is a significant development because Ten Hag’s objectives were previously unknown.

Although several managers have been mentioned in connection with the post, the Dutchman is the manager most desired by United supporters.

Mauricio Pochettino is the United board’s favorite, according to The Athletic, and some of United’s players are interested in the Argentine, according to The Telegraph.

According to the Mail, new chief executive Richard Arnold wants the new permanent manager to be named as soon as the season is over.

According to a report from ESPN earlier today, Carlo Ancelotti is being evaluated as a backup option if United fails to land both.

Erik Ten Hag has been Ajax manager since 2017, winning two titles and two cups, and is looking to add to that tally this season.

He has won praise for the way he has rebuilt the squad after losing key players and also playing attacking football.

This season, his Ajax side has scored 71 league goals and conceded only seven.

There will be a few twists and turns left in the United Manager’s pursuit yet, for sure. 

But hearing of Ten Hag’s intentions is a huge boost.
