Manchester United have confirmed Erik ten Hag will become their manager following the conclusion of this season.
The Ajax boss will leave his current position
United have confirmed that Ten Hag has signed a three-year contract, with a 12-month extension option beyond that point, and will join the club following the conclusion of the Dutch league season.
He impressed Old Trafford chiefs during an official interview in March, and Joel Glazer and CEO Richard Arnold made him the preferred candidate earlier this month.
It is understood United will pay Ajax a compensation fee of £1.6m. The Dutchman is hoping to go out on a high and win the Eredivise for the third time – his side currently sit four points clear of second place PSV with five games left to play.
It is understood he will also look to bring his own backroom staff with him and will have an instant input on transfers.
United are expecting to take in a busy summer window as they look to rebuild the squad again with a number of high profile players out of contract.
