Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano gives ten Hag update

Manchester United are working on appointing their new manager to take over at Old Trafford this summer with Erik ten Hag the favourite for the role, and now Fabrizio Romano has given a fresh update on the progress of the deal.

What’s the word?

According to journalist and transfer insider, Romano, there are still areas that ten Hag and Manchester United are yet to agree on to complete his move to the club this summer.

Where did Manchester United sign David Beckham from?

Romano tweeted: “Erik ten Hag wants to make sure he has enough ‘power’ to decide on the project together with the board, and especially to avoid transfer mistakes.

“That’s why he’s still in discussions with Man Utd before signing.”

Good news

For supporters of the club, ten Hag’s desire to play a part in transfers and power that allows him to have much more involvement than those that managed the team before him is good news in terms of the project that needs to be completed given the manager’s track record with building teams.

The 52-year-old tactician has got his team at Ajax playing phenomenal attacking football that has proven to be highly efficient and successful in the Dutch league and European competitions.

This season alone Ajax are winning 2.45 points and scoring 3.04 per game with a win ratio of 78.57% putting the side at the top of the Eredivisie table four points clear of PSV and currently in with a good chance of securing their third title under ten Hag, according to FootyStats.

Is ten Hag the right manager for MUFC?

Yes

No

No

In terms of European competitions, the Ajax boss took the side to their first Champions League semi-final in 22 years back in 2019, but this season ironically crashed out of the prestigious competition on the same night as Manchester United, when they lost to Benfica at home in the round of 16.

Despite not being able to lift a Champions League trophy yet in his managerial career, Manchester United supporters and the board will be hoping the winning mentality he has built in the Netherlands can be emulated and will further progress in England if he joins Old Trafford this summer.

With RB Leipzig reportedly attempting to hijack the deal by signing up ten Hag in the Bundesliga, the Red Devils must do everything they can to complete the move for the Dutch coach as soon as they can.
