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

Erik ten Hag says it is a great honour to be named the new manager of Manchester United. The club officially confirmed his appointment on Thursday morning, with the current Ajax boss set to take charge of the club at the end of the season.

Ten Hag, 52, will become only the second Dutchman to manage United, following in the footsteps of compatriot Louis van Gaal. United were eager to have their new man in place before the start of the summer window in order to have a smooth transition between the reigns and to hit the ground running ahead of a pivotal off-season.

Ten Hag insists his immediate focus is now on finishing the season strongly with Ajax as he goes in search of a third Eredivisie title before focus switches to his new role at the end of the current campaign.

Erik ten Hag will reportedly be handed a £200m transfer budget should he take the reins at Manchester United this summer.

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.

According to the Daily Mirror, a £200m budget will be available for Ten Hag to strengthen his squad in key areas this summer.

The reports adds that Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Alex Telles, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Aaron Wan-Bissaka could all be sold to free up funds, while Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic and Lee Grant are all expected to leave when their contracts expire in June.

Ten Hag is understood to be determined to bring Brazilian forward Antony with him from Ajax, while the likes of RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku, Juventus’s Paulo Dybala and Villarreal’s Pau Torres are also on the Dutchman’s wishlist.
