Ajax expect Manchester United to make Erik ten Hag their next manager, according to talkSPORT sources.
The Dutch giants are anticipating a formal offer from United to pay the £1.7 compensation requited to release Ten Hag from his contract.
Along with Mauricio Pochettino, the Dutchman was regarded as one of the favourites to succeed interim boss Ralf Rangnick, and he now looks to have beaten the former Tottenham boss to the Red Devils job.
Ten Hag was interviewed for the Old Trafford job last month.
Paris Saint-Germain’s disappointing Champions League exit, having been 2-0 ahead against Real Madrid, is said to have not helped Pochettino’s cause.
Luis Enrique and Sevilla’s Julen Lopetegui were also reportedly considered, whilst Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel and Bayern Munich’s Julian Nagelsmann were also ruled out.
It was reported, after his interview, that Ten Hag impressed Man United chiefs with his vision and philosophy, something which helped Ajax to a Champions League semi-final in 2019.
He will be hoping to repeat that feat if he takes over at Man United, but reaching the final four of the continent’s biggest club competition is something they’ve not done since 2011.
