Ajax manager Erik ten Hag is currently ‘leading the race’ to be appointed the next Man United permanent manager in the summer, claims The Times.
The Dutchman is seen as the strongest candidate to take reigns of the squad from Ralf Rangnick next season.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino remains in the reckoning to get the job, but is seemingly behind Ten Hag in the pecking order.
Man United’s new CEO Richard Arnold will play a role in appointing Rangnick’s successor, while Ed Woodward is also reportedly going to play a part in the process.
Ten Hag has no intentions to leave Ajax before the end of the season but could be enticed to take up United’s offer in the summer.
