Sports

Erik Ten Hag has agreed on talking terms to become the new manager of Manchester United from next season.

According to CNN, the Ajax manager is likely to sign a four-year deal at Old Trafford anytime soon.

Ajax will be playing against PSV Eindhoven this Sunday in a Dutch Cup final according to British media.

Any official confirmation of the deal with the 52-year-old gaffer will probably be after Sunday’s game.

When CNN got in touch with Ten Hag’s representatives, SEG, Ajax and Manchester United, they were not available for comments.

Former manager of Paris Saint-Germain, Mauricio Pochettino, had also been linked to taking over from Ralf Rangnick at the end season.

Rangnick took over as an interim manager after the sack of Ole Gunnar Solskjær in November last year.

Ten Hag’s five-year stay at Ajax helped in boosting his reputation.

Presently, he is referred to as one of the most inspiring football managers in Europe.

He got the job to lead Ajax in the Dutch league in the 2017-18 season.

Since then, he won the Dutch league titles in 2019 and 2021.

Presently, Ajax is occupying the 1st position in the Dutch league, four points ahead of PSV Eindhoven.

Besides, he defeated Real Madrid in 2019 in the round-of-16 of the Champions League.

He later lost to Pochettino’s Tottenham in the tension-soaked semi-final.

Manchester United is presently in the seventh position of the Premier League table with 51 points and seven games to go.

It is not sure if United will qualify for the Champions League next season.
