Erik Ten Hag’s appointment as the new Manchester United manager is in its final stages, according to several sources. The Dutchman has accepted the offer made by the English club, and Ajax are aware that he is planning to move to the Premier League at the end of the season.
The manager was unconvinced with the offer that Manchester United had made earlier. But now that they have accepted his demands of making major decisions together with him, he is ready to make the switch and work on a long-term project at the club.
Manchester United in final stages of hiring Erik Ten Hag
Ajax have a release clause worth €2 million in Erik Ten Hag’s contract – and that is not expected to be a problem for Manchester United. The details of backroom staff is now to be discussed to finalise the release of the coach.
Nothing has been signed between the two parties just yet, and no announcement is expected from the club this week. However, the Premier League giants are working to complete the deal as soon as possible. They will wait to announce his arrival since the season is not yet over.
Ten Hag will have to remain focused on the task at hand with Ajax. His side has a KNVB Cup final against rivals PSV Eindhoven this weekend. They are also leading the race for the Eredivisie title, and are hopeful of staying at the top of the table until the end of the season.
