It’s been no secret for some time now, that Ajax coach Eric Ten Hag will be in the hot seat at Manchester United next season, and that is set to be official very soon with an announcement in the pipeline.
United sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November and Ralf Rangnick has been keeping the fort ever since, but the German is now ready to go upstairs as chancellor at the end of the season.
After considering several candidates, including Mauricio Pochettino, United decided Tin Hag was the man to lead them forward, a decision the club needed to make sure they got it right.
Manchester United have contracts and papers ready for Eric ten Hag, having reached a full agreement with the Dutchman last Monday and all that remains is to get the green light from Ajax to sign them.

Once that is complete, an official announcement should come soon according to Fabrizio Romano and it will be the start of a new era at Old Trafford, which United fans hope will bring some change.
Manchester FC have been in disarray lately and look set to miss next season’s Champions League unless Tottenham and Arsenal get away with it between now and the end of the season.
The club hierarchy made bad decision after bad decision, and after spending most of anyone’s money in the Premier League, they are still miles behind the top two spots in the table.
Man United need to get this next managerial appointment right, this guy needs to put the paper through the cracks as best he can until everything is settled behind the scenes because the club is not going anywhere until that is fixed.
The Red Devils hope Tin Hag is that man, if not, who knows where Manchester FC go from there.
