Rangnick is moving into a consultancy position within the club’s complex structure, while also taking on the Austrian national team head coach’s job. It is understood that neither role will interfere with each other.
Ajax lead the Eredivisie with five matches remaining. According to ESPN, Ten Hag has told United he must not be disturbed as he hunts a third league title with the Dutch side.
Upon his appointment by United last month, ten Hag said: “It is a great honour to be appointed manager of Manchester United and I am hugely excited by the challenge ahead. I know the history of this great club and the passion of the fans, and I am absolutely determined to develop a team capable of delivering the success they deserve.
“It will be difficult to leave Ajax after these incredible years, and I can assure our fans of my complete commitment and focus on bringing this season to a successful conclusion before I move to Manchester United.”
