MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly set to confirm Erik ten Hag as their next manager.
Old Trafford chiefs have unanimously agreed that the Ajax boss is the right man to lead the club from next season.
And ESPN claims Ten Hag’s appointment is ‘set to be finalised’ shortly.
SunSport exclusively revealed last month that the Dutchman was United’s top choice ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino.
The Red Devils carried out extensive background checks on the two men.
But despite Poch’s previous success in England with Tottenham, it was Ten Hag who came out on top.
Spain boss Luis Enrique and Sevilla’s Julen Lopetegui were also on United’s shortlist.
But it’s Ten Hag who will be tasked with rescuing United – almost a decade after Sir Alex Ferguson’s exit and the club’s last title win.
The Red Devils have been working on a hefty compensation package for Ajax over the past week.
And SunSport also understands Ten Hag has already identified his first signing at Old Trafford.
Wolves playmaker Ruben Neves, 25, is the man Ten Hag wants to make his midfield tick next term.
Paul Pogba is looking increasingly likely to depart on a free transfer.
And United are ready to wrap up a move for long-term target Neves – who could cost up to £40million.
However, Ten Hag may find himself needing a new striker.
Edinson Cavani is leaving when his contract expires, while the futures of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial remain unclear.
But it’s Cristiano Ronaldo who could be the most high-profile exit at United this summer.
And United’s owners, the Glazers, are only too happy to sell as they would like to get rid of Ronaldo’s £480,000-a-week wages, reports claim.
That’s because the 37-year-old is reportedly in talks to join David Beckham’s MLS side Inter Miami.
