Ten Hag demands new contract from United while two clubs believe he’s about to be sacked – report

European powerhouses Ajax and Bayern Munich are allegedly engaged in a “tug of war” for Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, with the latter believing he would undoubtedly be relieved of his duties at Old Trafford very soon.

Ten Hag’s tenure as United’s manager is still very much in doubt because of the dreadful and lackluster season he has managed.

United’s future remains uncertain, as there are strong connections between the club and several other managers.

Thomas Tuchel, who is ironically a possible successor for Ten Hag at United, and Bayern are expected to part ways. On Saturday, Bayern played their final game of the season, losing 4-2 to Hoffenheim.

The Bundesliga’s biggest clubs have had difficulty finding a worthy successor for Tuchel and have had numerous high-profile coaches turn them down.

Ajax, on the other hand, is also searching for a new manager as they have been struggling since Ten Hag moved from Amsterdam to United.

Graham Potter was coveted by Ajax, but negotiations broke down. Simon Mullock of The Mirror claims that the Eredivisie team is keeping an eye on Ten Hag’s circumstances and may make a move for him if the right time arises. They will probably have to fend off Bayern’s competition, though, as both sides think the race is on.

“Erik ten Hag is still being courted by Bayern Munich and Ajax as D-Day at Manchester United looms.”

“Both Bayern and former club Ajax believe the Dutchman will depart Old Trafford at the end of the season – even if United can land an FA Cup Final shock by beating rivals Manchester City next Saturday.”

“Ajax are also in negotiations with Francesco Farioli, the Italian coach of Nice, the French club also owned by Ratcliffe. But they continue to monitor their former manager’s situation in Manchester.”

“Ten Hag also has a history with Bayern, having managed the German club’s reserve team when Pep Guardiola was in charge at the Allianz Arena.”

The newspaper adds that Ten Hag want Sir Jim Ratcliffe to publicly back him and show commitment by offering a new deal – something that has not been forthcoming so far.

Mullock also notes that Ten Hag may opt to walk away and pursue a fresh challenge if he feels Ratcliffe and INEOS don’t have faith in him.
