Man United continue talks as update on Erik ten Hag contract extension emerges

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag is expected to sign a new contract with the club in the coming weeks.

According to a report from Sky Sports, Manchester United have decided to keep him at the club and they are now working to extend his contract. The report further states that talks are currently progressing well, and it remains to be seen whether the two parties can reach an agreement soon.

Although the Red Devils had a disappointing league campaign, they managed to win the FA Cup last season.

Manchester United have now prioritised a contract extension with the Dutchman and they are likely to make changes to the coaching staff as well. Former striker Ruud van Nistelrooy and Go Ahead Eagles head coach Rene Hake are expected to join Ten Hag in the dugout next season.

Man United must back Erik ten Hag with quality signings

Meanwhile, Manchester United have been linked with a host of managers in recent weeks, but they have decided to stick with the 54-year-old Dutch manager. It remains to be seen whether they back the former Ajax manager adequately in the transfer market and help him improve the squad ahead of the new season. Manchester United have the bones of a very good squad, but they need to add more quality and depth if they want to compete with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City.

It remains to be seen whether Ten Hag can repay the faith shown in him and guide Manchester United to a successful season next year. There is no doubt that the Red Devils have shown progress under him, but they have been inconsistent. They will be expected to compete for trophies next season and return to the UEFA Champions League.
