Erik ten Hag makes final transfer decision on £73,000,000 Manchester United star

Erik ten Hag made three key demands during talks with Manchester United chiefs before committing to signing a new contract.

The Dutchman’s future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s new-look backroom team sounding out a number potential replacements.

After the likes of Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino opted against working under the new structure that has been put in place by INEOS, United have belatedly nailed their colours to Ten Hag’s mast.

The 54-year-old is currently on holiday but is understood to be close to putting pen to paper on a new two-year contract extension.

Winning the FA Cup in such uplifting fashion has undoubtedly strengthened his bargaining hand and, according to The Sun, Ten Hag felt emboldened enough to make a series of requests during negotiations.

The most significant of which centres on Jadon Sancho, with Ten Hag adamant the England international has no future under him.

After a reputation enhancing loan spell at Borussia Dortmund United will hope to recoup a significant fee given there appears to be no way back for him at his parent club having failed to apologise to his manager.
