Sky Sports have dropped a live TV update on Manchester United and their pursuit of Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.
The Lowdown: United closing in?
It seems as if the Red Devils are looking to get a deal for Ralf Rangnick’s long-term replacement in place before the summer.
Happy with Ten Hag at Old Trafford?
No, he's not the right man!
The Telegraph revealed on Wednesday evening that United are close to appointing the Dutch manager at Old Trafford, with negotiations moving very quickly.
The Latest: Sky Sports update
Sky Sports senior reporter Melissa Reddy dropped a live TV update on Thursday regarding United and Ten Hag.
Reddy revealed that United have insisted that no deal has been signed with Ten Hag. However, ‘sources close to Ten Hag and Ajax’ told Sky Sports that compensation and an ‘announcement’ have been discussed regarding the 52-year-old, with formalities expected to be completed soon.
The Verdict: A matter of time?
It looks as if it is now just a matter of time until Ten Hag is announced as Manchester United’s next permanent manager.
The club have done extremely well when it comes to working behind the scenes for Ten Hag, who is leading his side in a title race with PSV.
Finalising a move before May should give the Red Devils the best possible chance of a successful rebuild, instead of the club searching for a new boss during the summer window.
