Manchester United are continuing to be linked with Ajax boss Erik ten Hag as they explore their managerial options. Ralf Rangnick isn’t expected to be given the Old Trafford job at the current moment in time, with the Red Devils instead looking elsewhere. And it’s the Ajax boss who seems to have leapfrogged Mauricio Pochettino when it comes to being the Red Devils’ No 1 choice to take over.
Manchester United were linked with both Ten Hag and Pochettino in the immediate aftermath of their decision to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earlier in the season.
However, with both men working at Ajax and Paris Saint-Germain respectively, they then opted to hire Rangnick on an interim basis instead.
The 63-year-old has done well enough at Old Trafford but, with the club still too inconsistent, their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League hang in the balance.
United have recently made contact with Ten Hag as they explore the possibility of the 52-year-old taking over, having been at Ajax since 2017.
However, Dutch journalist Mike Verweij thinks United may struggle to secure his signature.
Verweij claims Ten Hag had ‘more or less agreed’ with Marc Overmars that he could leave Ajax this summer – but the departure of the former has now complicated matters.
