Sky Sports’ Melissa Reddy provides an update on the matter, reporting that while Manchester United appear keen to insist that they are still discussing multiple candidates for the job, preparations for a “formal announcement” of Ten Hag as their next permanent manager have already begun.
In the Sky footage below, Reddy discusses this as well as Ralf Rangnick’s likely future role after his time as temporary manager ends this summer…
United fans will undoubtedly hope that something is announced as soon as possible, with Ten Hag appearing like an interesting choice, even if he appears to be getting in ahead of some more known and experienced individuals.
The Dutchman has never managed in the Premier Division and may find it a significant step up from the Eredivisie, where his Ajax side has been dominant, although in a less competitive league.
🗣️ “In terms of getting something over the line soon which United wanted to do, it made the most sense.”
