Manchester United are apparently on the verge of signing Erik ten Hag as coach for the coming season.
According to a report by ESPNwhich cites sources in England and the Netherlands, ten Hag and Manchester United bosses are said to have agreed that the Dutchman will take over as manager at the English giants in the new season.
According to this, Hag is now ready to leave Ajax Amsterdam at the end of the season. He would succeed Ralf Rangnick, who took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on an interim basis in the autumn and is set to be available as an adviser going forward.
Also Thomas Tuchel and Julian Nagelsmann on the list
ManUnited has had some talks with the 52-year-old ten Hag in recent weeks. In addition to the former FC Bayern U23 coach, Mauricio Pochettino (Paris Saint-Germain), Luis Enrique (Spain) and Julen Lopetegui (Seville FC) were also on the club’s wish list.
According to ESPN, Thomas Tuchel and Julian Nagelsmann, who were also on the radar of the club bosses, were not contacted because an agreement seemed hopeless.
While there were apparently some advocates for Pochettino at the club, CEO Joel Glazer, who was ultimately allowed to make the decision, spoke out in favor of ten Hag.
