Manchester United officially confirmed Erik ten Hag would be their new manager on Thursday.

The current Ajax boss has signed a deal at Old Trafford that runs until 2025. United have the option to extend his contract by an additional year should they wish to.

Ten Hag will meet his new team at the end of the current campaign. In the meantime, he will be hoping to win the Eredivisie as his last act in charge of the Amsterdam club.

With all the excitement regarding Ten Hag’s appointment, it would be easy to forget that United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick is preparing his team for a huge clash in the Premier League. United travel to the Emirates to face Arsenal in the early kick-off on Saturday.

United sit three points behind the hosts in sixth but both sides have eyes on catching Tottenham Hotspur in the race for fourth place.

Manchester United great Paul Scholes has told Marcus Rashford how he can regain his form after a difficult season.

Rashford has scored just five goals in 30 appearances this season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick. At times this campaign Anthony Elanga has been favoured over him and he was left considering his future following United’s thumping at the hands of Manchester City.

The 24-year-old has also been criticised for his body language on the pitch. It has been noted that his confidence has deserted him and Scholes pointed to that when explaining how the England international can return to his previous best.

Manchester United first team hopeful Dylan Levitt has been backed to up his game now Erik ten Hag has been confirmed as his parent club’s next manager.

The 21-year-old is currently out on loan at Dundee United and has impressed Terrors boss Tam Courts during his stay. The youngster’s progression has been hampered by several injury setbacks this season but is tipped to finish the campaign strongly in light of the news that came out of Old Trafford on Thursday.

Levitt, whose United contract expires this summer, already has 10 Wales caps under his belt and he will be vying for a place in the squad that takes on Ukraine and potentially Scotland in their World Cup play-offs this June. When asked whether this, his contract situation and ten Hag’s United appointment could spur Levitt to another level, Courts said (via the Courier): “As a management team, we need to harness that.

Alejandro Garnacho has been named in the Manchester United squad for their trip to face Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.

The Argentinian winger, who was on the bench for the first team’s defeat to Liverpool earlier in the week, will once again be part of Ralf Rangnick’s squad for the match at the Emirates on Saturday lunchtime. Garnacho, 17, was not named in the United U23 squad for their match against Arsenal on Friday evening, with the Manchester Evening News understanding it is because he is with the senior side.

Hannibal Mejbri, who impressed with the tenacity he displayed in a cameo against Liverpool on Tuesday night, does start at Old Trafford in the youth fixture, which suggests he won’t be part of the side that plays in London this weekend. Raphael Varane and Scott McTominay are both part of the United squad for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Arsenal.

Two-time Premier League champion William Gallas has suggested Paul Pogba does not have a strong enough mentality to play consistently for Manchester United in the Premier League.

The midfielder is poised for an Old Trafford exit when his contract expires this summer. The World Cup winner has not explicitly ruled out a move to another Premier League club but it is thought nearly all of the transfer interest is coming from abroad.

Pogba limped off with a calf injury inside ten minutes of United’s 4-0 defeat to Liverpool on Tuesday. Gallas believes that will come to be his last appearance for the club.

Eric Bailly has made a plea to Ralf Rangnick to start ahead of Harry Maguire for Manchester United this weekend.

Bailly has played just seven times for United this season, and is yet to feature for the club since the turn of the year. His last appearance came in the 3-1 win over Burnley on December 30.

The Ivory Coast international has found himself falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford under interim boss Ralf Rangnick, leading to suggestions he will leave the club this summer. Bailly is under contract until 2024, with the club holding the option of a further year, but he has been linked with the likes of AC Milan and Roma.

Steve McClaren has admitted he’d be reluctant to return to ‘day to day’ management, but didn’t rule out a coaching comeback, amid strong links with a post in Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United backroom staff.

The former Sir Alex Ferguson assistant, who has also managed England, Newcastle, Derby and Middlesbrough among others, has been heavily touted for a return to Old Trafford this summer. As well as working under Ferguson at Old Trafford, he’s a former colleague of Ten Hag who was his assistant at FC Twente.

Ten Hag has now been confirmed as United’s next boss, with the 52-year-old’s Ajax assistant Mitchell van der Gaag expected to join him in Manchester. McClaren could follow suit, having intimate knowledge of both United and Ten Hag’s coaching methods.


Manchester United are in London today as they return to Premier League action in a huge match against Arsenal.

Both sides are pushing for the final top-four spot as they aim to secure Champions League football for next season. United are three points and a place behind the Gunners who sit in fifth.

Ralf Rangnick’s side have a significantly poorer goal difference meaning defeat at the Emirates Stadium could all but end their hopes of making the top four. United will be able to call upon the services of Cristiano Ronaldo after he missed the defeat to Liverpool.

One player United will be unable to select in the capital is Paul Pogba. The Frenchman picked up an injury at Anfield which will take him a minimum of four weeks to recover from.

Rangnick told the media yesterday that it is ‘very unlikely’ he will play again this season. Pogba’s contract expires this summer and he is expected to leave Old Trafford when his deal ends.

Manchester United take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

United confirmed the appointment of Erik ten Hag on Thursday and it will be the first game the Reds have played in the Premier League following that news. Ten Hag joins United on a three-year contract with the option of an additional year.

It seems highly likely Ten Hag won’t be managing United in the Champions League next season. United have endured a miserable campaign and they sit three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, while the London club also have one game in hand.

United play fifth-placed Arsenal today and the game will have huge ramifications on the top four race. Regarding team news, Scott McTominay, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo are available again after their respective absences.

Fred, Luke Shaw and Edinson Cavani remain sidelined through injury.

There is still a sense of mystery surrounding the appointment of Erik ten Hag as the next Manchester United manager, though in the next few weeks we should get a much clearer idea of what exactly he will bring to Old Trafford.

The search for a new manager officially came to an end on Thursday when United announced that the 52-year-old would take over at the end of the season, though club sources had admitted long before the official statement that a deal was practically done. United delayed their announcement of Ten Hag until after the Dutch Cup final last weekend in order to ensure it wasn’t an unnecessary distraction from the task at hand.

After a 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven, hindsight would suggest it might have been wise to get it out of the way, potentially galvanising the side further to ensure their manager was given the perfect send-off. This weekend, Ten Hag won’t be able to ignore the impending career change, even if he remains coy whenever he is quizzed by the media on his upcoming move to England.

Raphael Varane and Scott McTominay are both part of the Manchester United squad for tomorrow’s Premier League clash with Arsenal.

United’s players arrived at Manchester Airport on Friday afternoon for the flight to the capital ahead of Saturday’s crucial fixture at the Emirates. Arsenal’s midweek win against Chelsea has strengthened their position in the race for fourth and Ralf Rangnick’s side are now three points behind the Gunners and Tottenham.

Both of those sides have a game in hand, although it is against each other, but United will feel they need a win at the Emirates to get their own top-four hopes back on track. Varane has missed the last three games for United with muscular problems. McTominay has missed the same three fixtures but was on the bench at Anfield on Tuesday, although he hadn’t trained before that game and was only there in case of emergencies.


Ralf Rangnick admits it is possible he could not stay on as a consultant at Manchester United for the next two years.

Rangnick took over as interim manager in December, having primarily been a sporting director in the past decade, and although United have barely improved under his management Rangnick’s assessment of a fractured squad has been praised.

United confirmed the appointment of Erik ten Hag as their next manager on Thursday but Rangnick has not spoken to the Ajax coach.

Manchester United are set to welcome back a number of players for this weekend’s trip to Arsenal.

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to return from compassionate leave following the heartbreaking passing of his newborn son. Meanwhile, Raphael Varane is also poised to come back into the starting XI following his latest injury setback which has seen him only feature in the 1-1 draw with Leicester this month.

Scott McTominay made it to the bench for the 4-0 thrashing by Liverpool on Tuesday. He is set to be ready for Arsenal this weekend after recovering from a foot injury that kept him out since the loss to Everton earlier in April.

Welcome along to MEN Sport’s live transfer blog this morning as Manchester United prepare to take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Fans may well have seen the last of Paul Pogba in a Manchester United after Ralf Ragnick admitted the midfielder could miss the rest of the season.

Pogba left the pitch less than 10 minutes into Tuesday’s thrashing at Liverpool, and with his contract expiring in the summer, it looks unlikely we’ll see him back in action in a United shirt.

There is better news ahead of Saturday’s clash with Arsenal though, with Cristiano Ronaldo back in contention after missing the midweek trip to Anfield.

The Portuguese ace is one of three players back available for the journey to north London as United look to claw their way back into the race for the top four.

Ralf Rangnick has suggested a major rebuild is in the offing in the summer – and we could see even more players leave Old Trafford.

We already know some of the players who look set to leave at the end of their contracts – the likes of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani – but Rangnick has suggested more could follow once Erik ten Hag gets into the building.

Ralf Rangnick has given his reaction to Erik ten Hag’s appointment as Manchester United manager, with the Ajax boss set to take over from him at the end of the season.

Erik ten Hag has managed Go Ahead Eagles, Bayern Munich II, Utrecht and Ajax. That’s not ordinarily a path that leads to the Manchester United job, but it’s hoped Ten Hag is far from an ordinary manager. United need Ten Hag to be more than that.

It was no surprise to see United officially announce Ten Hag as their newest permanent manager on Thursday afternoon. United needed some positive spin after yet another disastrous week at the club. It was also an appropriate time for Ajax.

Although Ajax had been in contention to win two trophies this season, they suffered a 2-1 defeat against rivals PSV in the Dutch Cup last weekend. Ajax are four points clear in the Eredivisie with five games to play and becoming the Netherlands’ champions will have to be their consolation. It will be the third time Ten Hag has won the Eredivisie title with Ajax during his tenure.

It was never much of a secret, but Manchester United have finally confirmed Erik ten Hag will become their next permanent manager after he emerged as their preferred choice following a comprehensive search.

Throughout the process, United sources reiterated they were keeping their options open in regards to the next appointment, though in reality it was always a matter of Ten Hag or Mauricio Pochettino, the only two viable candidates for the role. No matter who United chose, there was always going to be an element of risk. Now, the key is for United to get behind their new man and ensure he has the best possible chance of success when he officially takes the reins at the end of the season.

But while the 52-year-old’s role won’t begin until the summer, he still has some initial work to do as the club looks to get everything in place so he can hit the ground running as soon as he arrives.

Steve McClaren has admitted he’d be reluctant to return to ‘day to day’ management, but didn’t rule out a coaching comeback, amid strong links with a post in Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United backroom staff.

The former Sir Alex Ferguson assistant, who has also managed England, Newcastle, Derby and Middlesbrough among others, has been heavily touted for a return to Old Trafford this summer. As well as working under Ferguson at Old Trafford, he’s a former colleague of Ten Hag who was his assistant at FC Twente.

United have been linked with RB Leipzig midfielder Konraid Laimer, but German news site Kicker, via Sport Witness, now claim Liverpool have also joined the race.

It’s reported that Ralf Rangnick is keen for United to sign the Austrian international, whose contract expires in around 14 months. As Laimer stalls on a new Leipzig deal — although the club are trying to extend it — it seems he’s open for a move and United’s midfield area certainly needs strengthening.

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire received a chilling threat to bomb his family home in the aftermath of the club’s 4-0 loss to Liverpool, it was revealed today. Police officers were dispatched to his home in Wilmslow, Cheshire, on Thursday afternoon, together with a specialist police explosives dog, as a follow-up, it’s been confirmed.

Cheshire Constabulary said the highly-trained dog carried out a search of the gardens and the area immediately surrounding the property today. It’s understood the United skipper received the bomb threat by email at the family home he shares with his fiancee Fern Hawkins and their two daughters.

Roy Hodgson has suggested Erik ten Hag could follow in the footsteps of Johan Cruyff and become a “wonder manager” at Manchester United.

Ten Hag’s appointment at Old Trafford was officially announced by United on Thursday morning, with the current Ajax boss set to take over at the end of the season. The 52-year-old becomes the club’s second Dutch manager in their history, following on from Louis van Gaal’s reign from 2014 to 2016.

Like Van Gaal, Ten Hag made his name in Amsterdam. His exploits with Ajax led to him becoming United’s preferred candidate earlier this year and he is now set to take over at a crucial time at Old Trafford.


Manchester United have officially announced Erik ten Hag will become their new manager at the end of the season.

Interim boss Ralf Rangnick outlined United’s problems after their miserable Merseyside trip, admitting as many as 10 new additions could be made this summer, with the club picking up the pieces from their defeat to Liverpool on Tuesday night as they prepare for this weekend’s trip to Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta’s side landed the crucial blows in their London derby triumph over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday to move level on points with Tottenham Hotspur. Ahead of United’s journey to the Emirates, Arsenal hold a three-point lead over United.

The Manchester Evening News reported earlier this week that United had reignited their interest in Pau Torres. Captain Harry Maguire has been criticised this season, though he fired back at his critics prior to his side’s clash with Liverpool.

Manchester United midfielder Fred is ready to prove himself under Erik ten Hag when the Dutchman moves into office at Old Trafford at the end of this season – but admits the appointment must be met with a genuine ambition to challenge for trophies.

The Manchester Evening News revealed last month that Ten Hag had been identified as the club’s preferred candidate to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on a permanent basis. Now, after weeks of talks with Ajax, the two clubs have come to an agreement and Ten Hag has signed a three-year contract with the option of an additional year.

During an interview with Premier League Productions, Fred said: “It’s great news, he’s a world-class coach who will help us a lot here. I’ve watched Ajax and they are a great team who play good football. We know he helps us a lot and hopefully, next year, we can win trophies.”

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has explained why the club chose to appoint Erik ten Hag over Mauricio Pochettino.

United confirmed on Thursday that Ten Hag had agreed to take over at Old Trafford at the end of the season. He has signed a three-year deal with the option of an additional year.

The current Ajax boss has been the club’s preferred candidate for some time now. However, Pochettino was thought to be the slight favourite following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last year.

Erik ten Hag will be faced with an enormous task when he arrives at Manchester United this summer.

The current Ajax boss has now agreed a deal to become United’s new boss. He was officially announced as the club’s next manager and will begin work in the summer.

There is no doubt Ten Hag arrives at Old Trafford with a massive job on his hands. With interim boss Ralf Rangnick suggesting the club could need as many as 10 new signings, the Dutchman has now been tasked with one of the biggest rebuilds in the club’s history.
