Erik ten Hag is already in line for a new Manchester United contract regardless of who takes over the club.

That is according to a report by the Mirror, who claim that the club want to reward the Dutchman for his work since taking over.

Ten Hag signed a three-year contract last summer, with the option to extend for another year until 2026.

The report says he earns £9 million a year, and it seems he is in line for a pay bump after winning the EFL Cup and transforming the club.

Erik ten Hag in line for new Manchester United contract

The report states that both takeover bidders who have gone public with their interest want the manager to pen a new deal.

Representatives of Sheikh Jassim and an Inoes delegation including Sir Jim Ratcliffe have both had talks with United this week.

It seems another round of bidding is set to get underway, now that they have had access to more information about United.

But whoever takes over, Ten Hag extending his deal is a priority which underlines his standing at the club and the quality of the work he has done in his first season.

Ratcliffe was at Carrington yesterday and Ten Hag mentioned at his press conference that he had met the British businessman briefly.

There are other contracts which are also outstanding at United, including Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, David de Gea, Fred and Diogo Dalot.

The club has triggered extensions on some of those, but talks remain to be concluded over long term contracts to tie them down.

The ‘incredible‘ Ten Hag is the most important person at the club right now though and if he does sign a new deal, it will go down incredibly well with the fans.
