Erik ten Hag ‘agrees to join’ Manchester United
Erik ten Hag has verbally agreed to join Manchester United after the club offered him a three-year contract.
The Athletic reports that the Ajax boss’ proposed deal will include the option for an additional year.
United officials will meet with their Dutch counterparts in the coming days to formalise ten Hag’s release, with a compensation fee understood to be in the region of £1.7million.
How Man United could line up under Ten Hag
Ten Hag emerged as United’s preferred candidate from a four-man shortlist, with Mauricio Pochettino, Julen Lopetegui and Luis Enrique also under strong consideration for the role.
English press were prevented from attending the Ajax manager’s press conference at the weekend in a bid to prevent questions about the Old Trafford job.
But a clearly unsettled Ten Hag was still probed on the state of play by the gathered media. “I want to talk about the game,” he said after an important 2-1 victory over Sparta Rotterdam. “I am not reacting to rumours… [ask me] questions about the game or I am going inside.”
Current interim manager Ralf Rangnick is set to take on a consultancy role at the club in the summer, having overseen the first-team squad since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked at the end of November.
