Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano drops Mitchell van der Gaag development -Manchester United News

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Manchester United have reached an agreement to bring Mitchell van der Gaag to Old Trafford.

The Lowdown: Van der Gaag links

Erik ten Hag gave the green light regarding a move for the Ajax assistant shortly after he was announced as United manager last month.

He’s been described as an ‘important addition’ at Old Trafford after serving as Ten Hag’s assistant for 47 games. There was talk last month that Van der Gaag could succeed Ten Hag as Ajax manager, but it looks as if a move to Manchester will now go through.

The Latest: Romano’s update

Romano took to Twitter on Thursday evening to provide an update regarding Van der Gaag.

The transfer expert revealed that a ‘full agreement’ has now been reached, saying it is ‘just a matter of time’ until a contract is finalised.

The Verdict: Key

Ten Hag was clearly keen on bringing his assistant to Old Trafford, and despite taking longer than they may have liked, it looks as if the United boss will get his way.

The pair have enjoyed success working together this season, with Ajax recently securing the Dutch title after picking up 82 points from 33 games.

Van der Gaag now looks set to be the first coaching staff addition under Ten Hag, and it’ll be interesting to see who else he brings in before turning his attention to a number of summer signings, with Steve McClaren’s name popping up once again regarding a potential Old Trafford return.
