Details of Ten Hag’s new Manchester United contract emerge

Erik ten Hag is reportedly on the verge of agreeing a new two-year contract with Manchester United around £27 million, Newspremises has gathered.

Ten Hag, whose future at Old Trafford was in a dim light at the end of last season was given the green light to continue as United boss earlier this month, and has agreed in principle to the new contract extension.

The new contract will keep the Dutch tactician who had one year left on his existing £9 million-a-year contract at Old Trafford, at United until 2027.

According to The Mirror, the former Ajax boss and his agents are close to finalizing fresh terms of the new contract, which should be confirmed this week.

The new deal will include a shake-up of United’s coaching staff, with former striker Ruud van Nistelrooy set to return to the club as part of Ten Hag’s backroom team.

Van Nistelrooy was considered for the position to succeed Vincent Kompany at Burnley but reportedly declined, opting instead to take on a coaching role at Manchester United.

Erik ten Hag experienced a two-and-a-half-week period of uncertainty following United’s impressive 2-1 victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley, which also secured their spot in the Europa League.

During this time, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his newly formed football executive team conducted an end-of-season review, exploring potential replacements for Ten Hag.

Among the candidates was Thomas Tuchel, the former manager of Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain, who ultimately withdrew from consideration.

After almost three weeks of evaluation, United chose to retain Ten Hag, dispatching a delegation to Ibiza—where the 54-year-old was vacationing—to assure him of his position.

This decision was accompanied by the promise of a contract extension, which is now nearing finalization.

United is set to return for pre-season training on July 8, with their first pre-season match against Rosenborg in Trondheim on July 15, followed by a game against Rangers in Edinburgh at Murrayfield on July 20.
