Manchester United reach agreement in principle for Erik ten Hag to become new boss

Manchester United have reached an agreement in principle for Erik ten Hag to become their new coach

Manchester United are looking to finalize the appointment of a permanent manager.

Ralf Rangnick, who is expected to move to a consultant position at the end of the season, has been in temporary charge of the club since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked earlier this season.

The German has achieved little success at Old Trafford so far, as he oversaw their exit from the FA Cup and the Champions League at the hands of Middlesbrough and Atletico Madrid, in addition to removing the Red Devils from the top four, to sixth place.

Despite this, it now appears that United have finally settled on a replacement. Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain and Eric ten Hag of Ajax are the two names who have been strongly associated with this role.

And now, according to The Athletic, Manchester United have agreed a deal in principle with the duo: “Manchester United have reached an agreement in principle with Eric ten Hag to become their next permanent manager.”

It is believed to be a verbal agreement and Ten Hag is expected to join in a contract lasting up to four years.

Moreover, it is added that Ajax is aware of the situation and still needs to reach an agreement with United, although there will be no written agreement or announcement until after they meet Ajax Eindhoven in the Dutch Cup final on April 17.
