RB Leipzig is preparing to convince Manchester United target Erik ten Hag to take charge of the German club.
Manchester United are reported to be appointing Tin Hag as their manager, according to ESPN, via Sports Illustrated.
Now, a Dutch newspaper de Telegraaf They report that RB Leipzig is looking to hijack the move. Ten Hag is said to be considering a RB Leipzig offer, possibly due to his unwillingness to press for a job like Manchester United.
The German club is said to be happy to pay the £1.6m release clause to get his man.
The English press is often difficult, especially when running a club of this size. Moving to Manchester from a club like Ajax is a big step considering the level of the Eredivisie.
The Premier League is significantly more difficult, and we have seen many players struggle when coming from the Netherlands.
Moving to Leipzig as a springboard to England could be a smart move from Ten Hag.
We’ve seen the likes of Jürgen Klopp, Ralph Hessenhuttl and Ralph Rangnick establish themselves in Germany, prior to promotion to the Premier League.
