“Contract will be terminated” – Fabrizio Romano has just shared big Man Utd exit news

Erik ten Hag’s assistant manager Mitchell van der Gaag has left Manchester United with immediate effect after the termination of his contract, according to the ever-reliable Fabrizio Romano, who also revealed that Ruud van Nistelrooy’s arrival is 100% confirmed.

Since Sir Jim Ratcliffe acquired a minority stake in the 20-time English champions, there have been all manner of behind-the-scenes changes occurring at the club, with Dan Ashworth, Omar Berrada and Jason Wilcox all arriving as new members of staff.

After a turbulent second season at the Old Trafford helm, Ten Hag – who has recently signed a contract extension until the summer of 2026 – had been weighing up whether a coaching reshuffle was needed with van Nistelrooy and former Go Ahead Eagles custodian Rene Hake linked with the club.

Although Ten Hag managed to keep his job after a season which saw Manchester United record their worst-ever finish of the Premier League era, the former Ajax man is wasting little to no time to ensure that his team are in order ahead of an all-important season.

Taking to X (formerly of Twitter), Romano broke the news that van der Gaag would be leaving his position at Old Trafford as Ten Hag’s right-hand man after having his contract terminated, making way for the soon-to-arrive van Nistelrooy.
