Romano says Ten Hag to Manchester United 'set to be completed'

Manchester United are ‘set to complete’ a contract agreement with incoming manager Erik ten Hag, says journalist Fabrizio Romano.

United had made progress with Ten Hag, only for it to be put on hold ahead of the KNVB Cup final which was played yesterday.

The Guardian report an announcement will be made official by Manchester United ‘in the coming days’.

Ten Hag will also get the ‘final say’ on transfers, a key negotiating point.

Ajax still have their league title bid to complete, with five matches remaining. They currently hold a five point lead.

Manchester United meanwhile are fighting to try and get into the top four, and have a crucial run of games against Liverpool, Arsenal, and Chelsea in the next three matches.

Ten Hag’s arrival now looks a formality at this point, which will allow preparations for next season to get underway, including work to try and set up potential transfers early.

Mitchell van der Gaag is set to become his assistant, following Ten Hag from Ajax. He is a very highly rated defensive mind, who will be a big help. Discussions are ongoing whether Steve McClaren may join them.
