Seven Ajax players Erik ten Hag could look to sign if given the Man Utd job
The Dutchman has been interviewed for the Red Devils job according to reports - we take a look at seven names he could look to sign from Ajax if appointed United boss.
Erik ten Hag could become Manchester United’s next permanent manager after being interviewed for the vacancy, according to reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked as United boss in November after a poor run of form and was replaced by Ralf Rangnick on an interim basis until the end of the season.
The latter is set to take up a consultancy role with the Red Devils at the end of the campaign and will work with the club’s next manager.
According to the Daily Mail, Ten Hag was interviewed for the vacancy on Monday and is amongst a ‘number of candidates’ speaking with United about the role at Old Trafford, with Mauricio Pochettino, Julen Lopetegui and Luis Enrique also on their shortlist.
Ten Hag is now the bookies’ favourite for the job, with the 52-year-old’s contract expiring at Ajax in 2023.
United will end the season without a piece of silverware for the fifth consecutive year and fans will be hoping if appointed as manager, ten Hag will be able to turn their fortunes around.
One way the Dutchman can do that is by rebuilding the Red Devils squad, especially with several members of the first team out of contract this summer.
With that being said, let’s take a look at seven Ajax players the 52-year-old could look to sign if given the United job.
