Erik Ten Hag is set to be confirm as the next manager of Manchester United after a source insists agreement has been reached.

Ajax Manager Erik Ten Hag is set to be confirm as the next manager of Manchester United according to BBC a source in Netherland confirmed this.

The Manchester United board say no deal has been done yet but the source insists an agreement is in place.

The Dutch will replace current interim manager Ralf Rangnick who has been in charge of the team since the departure of Ole Gunner Solskjaer.

Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was also in the piture and was once a leading candidate for the Old Trafford job.

Official confirmation of Ten Hag’s appointment is not expected before Ajax’s Dutch Cup final against PSV Eindhoven on Sunday.

Ajax lead the Dutch league by four points from PSV as they aim to win their third Dutch league title under Ten Hag.

Ajax had a disappointing Champions League campaign following their defeat to Befinca.

It will bring a sense of certainty to a club whose season is full of issues Rangnick struggles with a mounting number of problems if Ten Hag is appointed.

Amid numerous suggestions of splits in the dressing room, United now seem unlikely to secure a place in next season’s Champions League after a run of one win in seven games in all competitions, their worst sequence of results since 2019.

With many big-name players either out of contract, such as Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard, or facing uncertain futures, like Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford, it promises to be a summer of upheaval at Old Trafford.

It has been felt Ten Hag’s management style is more suited to the structures put in place at United, which include John Murtough as football director.

Ten Hag will become the fifth permanent manager at Old Trafford since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.
