Erik ten Hag has agreed to become the next manager of Manchester United, according to reports. The Ajax boss has been battling with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino, Luis Enrique and Julen Lopetegui to take over from Ralf Rangnick at Old Trafford. Yet, now, it seems the 52-year-old is set for the biggest job of his career. 

Manchester United, according to The Athletic, have struck a verbal agreement with Ten Hag that will see him become their new boss.

The 52-year-old is poised to take over from Rangnick, who is poised to move upstairs as a consultant come the end of the campaign.

It’s stated that United will finalise Ten Hag’s coaching staff in due course, while an official announcement won’t be made just yet out of respect to Ajax.

The Dutch giants are due to face PSV Eindhoven in the Dutch Cup final this weekend.

And United don’t want to risk rocking the boat and damaging their hopes of bringing Ten Hag to the club this summer.
