EPL: Ten Hag ‘signs four-year deal’ to become Man Utd new manager


Ajax coach, Erik ten Hag, has agreed a deal in principle with Manchester United to become their new permanent manager, The Athletic reports.

The 52-year-old emerged as United’s No.1 target to replace interim boss Ralf Rangnick, following an interview with senior officials at the club last month.

Ten Hag, however, held some reservations about taking over at Old Trafford and demanded a number of assurances before committing to the rebuilding project that he will now oversee.

The Dutchman has now verbally agreed a four-year deal, but no official announcement will be made before the Dutch Cup final on April 17, when Ajax face PSV Eindhoven.

Ten Hag is said to have requested full control over the composition of his backroom staff.

The likes of Rene Meulensteen and Steve McClaren, who both assisted legendary United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, have been linked with possible returns, as well as treble-winning defender Jaap Stam.
