Manchester United are supposedly ready to announce Ajax manager Erik ten Hag as their new head coach as early as next week.
Manchester United are reportedly close to announcing Erik ten Hag as their next head coach as soon as next week.
The Dutchman has emerged as the frontrunner to succeed Ralf Rangnick at Old Trafford, and he is said to have already held meetings with the club’s hierarchy.
There was a short fear that United may lose out on Ten Hag, who is said to desire 100 percent engagement in the transfer market and is admired by both RB Leipzig and United.
However, Football Insider believes that Man United are in a strong position to activate Ten Hag’s £1.7 million release clause in his Ajax contract, and that the 52-year-arrival old’s may be announced following his side’s KNVB-Beker match against PSV Eindhoven on Sunday.
In a recent news conference, Ten Hag fiercely refused to discuss the Man United position, but according to the source, he is now prepared to accept the Red Devils’ offer.
Ten Hag has won 156 of Ajax’s 209 games in all competitions, and his team currently leads the Eredivisie table by four points over PSV Eindhoven.
