Manchester United have received a major boost in their bid to make Erik ten Hag permanent manager this summer. Ajax believe Ten Hag ‘will leave’ the club at the end of the season, and a recent decision has emphasised that stance.
United’s search for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s permanent successor is underway, and the club hope to announce their choice by the end of April.
Football director John Murtough is spearheading the search and wants to identify the perfect candidate before the end of the season so they can be entirely involved in planning for the 2022/23 campaign.
Ten Hag and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino have been widely touted as United’s two leading contenders.
But the Red Devils seemingly have an open goal if they want Ten Hag to enter the Old Trafford hot seat in July.
According to reputable Dutch journalist Mike Vermeij, the Ajax hierarchy expect Ten Hag to depart this summer.
On Sunday, Ajax announced that Klaas-Jan Huntelaar had joined the club’s technical staff following director of football Marc Overmars’ exit.
Huntelaar will be working alongside Ten Hag and technical manager Gerry Hamstra in Amsterdam.
However, Ten Hag didn’t have much say in his appointment. He was only informed of it, which is a huge indicator that Ajax see their future without him in their ranks.
