Manchester United set to sign new two-year contract with Erik Ten Hag after conclusion of end-of-season review – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United are reportedly close to signing manager Erik ten Hag to a new two-year contract to stay with the club.

After more than two weeks of waiting while the club carried out an end-of-season review, the news everyone had been waiting for finally arrived on Tuesday evening.

The Athletic's David Ornstein revealed that Ten Hag will remain as coach of the Red Devils after months of speculation over his future.

In some cases it looked like United and the Dutchman were parting ways, not least because Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS were said to have held talks with other managers.

Conversations were held with representatives of tacticians like Thomas Tuchel, Kieran McKenna, Mauricio Pochettino, Marco Silva, Gareth Southgate and Thomas Frank.

As well as confirming that Ten Hag will remain in charge of United, Ornstein also noted that the 54-year-old manager is in the running for a new contract at Old Trafford.

The telegraph have now provided an update on this and indicated how long the new Ten Hag terms will last.

“Erik ten Hag will likely be offered a two-year contract extension to his current deal at Manchester United.”

“A preliminary discussion has taken place with United, suggesting they have not reached details on the length of a deal. There is a wait, but it will take another two years.

“Ten Hag arrived on a three-year contract in 2022, which included United holding an option to extend for a further 12 months, meaning his contract expires on June 30, 2025. But it is expected to be replaced by a two-year deal. additional months, which means he will have three years remaining from the end of this month.

Jason Burt further explains that a new deal for Ten Hag is a direct result of Ratcliffe's decision that he wants the United boss to stay in the Old Trafford dugout.

It now remains to be seen whether Ten Hag's official role will be redefined in his new contract. At the moment he holds the title of manager, but INEOS appears to favor a head coach, who would primarily focus on coaching the team while leaving other aspects of the team, such as recruitment, to others.
