A report claims Erik ten Hag will be sacked by Manchester United irrespective of the FA Cup outcome

Manchester United insist no decision has been made on the future of Erik ten Hag yet after a high-profile report suggested he would be sacked regardless of the outcome of the FA Cup final.

United sources are adamant his future will only be determined once a full review takes place after tomorrow's FA Cup final against Man City, but The Guardian claim that he will be dismissed of his duties irrespective of the outcome.

The report claims 'a well-placed source said that even winning the Cup would not save Ten Hag,' after they recorded their worst ever finish to a Premier League season and are in danger of finishing the campaign trophyless.

The Ineos Group have been conducting a full audit of the club ever since Sir Jim Ratcliffe's minority investment was confirmed, with the manager's role under scrutiny after a poor season that has been plagued by poor performances and an injury crisis.

Although the injury situation has contributed to the club's struggles on the pitch, it is suggested the Ineos Group do not see it as enough of an excuse for their poor performances throughout the campaign.

Thomas Tuchel, Gareth Southgate, Graham Potter, Mauricio Pochettino and Kieran McKenna are all believed to be under consideration if indeed United decide to part ways with Ten Hag in the coming days.
