Ten Hag

Manchester United have been handed a boost amid their interest in Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, reports suggest.

Ten Hag has been linked with the United hot seat as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under mounting pressure following an inconsistent start to the season.

The Dutch head coach has also been linked with Newcastle, who are looking for Steve Bruce’s successor to spearhead the club to a new era after their £300million Saudi-led takeover.

According to the Mirror, however, the Magpies are facing a difficult task convincing the 51-year-old to move to Tyneside.

That is because the former Utrecht head coach is not keen on a relegation battle in the Premier League.

The Toon have endured a horrendous start to the season as they are winless after their first 10 matches in the top flight, of which they have lost six.

That led to Bruce’s dismissal and Newcastle have prioritised the search for his replacement.

Ten Hag is among their top picks and are willing to give him a hefty transfer kitty as well as an enormous salary that would see him earn five times his current £2m-a-year wages.

But it seems like the former centre-back is not keen on risking Champions League football for the Championship.

Thus, he is currently focused on the Eredivisie champions and refuses to address speculation linking him with the top job at St James’ Park.

Ten Hag also avoids commenting on rumours suggesting Newcastle’s new owners are keeping tabs on Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars.

However, Ronald Koeman’s sacking from Barcelona has made matters more complicated for both the Magpies and United.

That is because Ten Hag remains among Barca’s targets as it will take some doing to get club legend and top pick Xavi over from Al Sadd.

Nevertheless, the Dutchman seems quite pleased in Amsterdam as he turned down Tottenham as well as three jobs in the Bundesliga and an ­Italian club last summer.
