Manchester United decides on Erik ten Hag and begin negotiations with Premier League manager

According to sources, Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi would likely take over as next Manchester United manager after co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe fires Ten Hag.

Ten Hag led Manchester United to an FA Cup final, League Cup victory, and a top-four Premier League finish in 2022-2023.

However, things did not go as planned this season; Manchester United finished last in their Champions League group and struggled to keep up with the top four teams in the Premier League.

According to Spanish publication Nacional (via Football 365), Ratcliffe “has decided to fire” Ten Hag and “may interfere in Barca‘s search for a new coach.”

Manchester United are discussing with Brighton‘s manager, De Zerbi, because the Italian is the name they want to succeed Ten Hag at the end of the season.

Deco, Barcelona‘s sporting director, sees the Brighton manager as his “favourite” candidate to succeed Xavi when the season ends.

However, the Red Devils will try to keep him from joining Camp Nou in the summer, preferring to succeed Ten Hag.

What’s next for Ten Hag?

The Dutch manager is under mounting pressure at Old Trafford, and the most recent report claims that his days at the club are numbered.

The 54-year-old manager has been connected with a return to former club Ajax, which is searching for a new manager.

He won three Dutch titles with Ajax and advanced to the Champions League semifinals.

The manager is well-regarded for his contributions to the Eredivisie club, and they would welcome him back with open arms.
