Erik ten Hag in profile as Man Utd ‘open talks’ with Ajax boss

Manchester United have started interviewing for their next manager and former player Mark Hughes has had his say on who should get the job in the summer.

One of the potential targets for the Red Devils is Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino, who could be on his way out after the club’s early exit in the UEFA Champions League.

But reports suggest the soon to be French champions could keep the former Tottenham Hotspur boss and ask him to turn a move back to the Premier League.

The next boss will be able to call upon Bruno Fernandes who is set to sign a new contract at Old Trafford. The deal will see the Portuguese playmaker double his wages and keep him tied down for a further five years. With three years still remaining on his deal, the club have moved quickly to tie down a key piece to United’s future plans.

United’s Pochettino blow

Despite an early exit from the UEFA Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain are reported to be ready to back manager Mauricio Pochettino and avoid wholesale changes.

PSG were knocked out in the Round of 16 to Real Madrid despite being two goals up in the second leg with 30 minutes remaining. The disappointing loss came as a bitter blow to a club who have long-harboured ambitions of winning European club football’s biggest prize and to many inside the French club, the Champions League is the biggest trophy of the season.

But with sporting director Leonardo set to depart, there is reason to believe PSG will want to keep the Argentinian manager and stop him from walking into the arms of Manchester United.

Hughes delivers manager advice

Former Manchester United striker Mark Hughes has warned his old club against hiring a manager without Premier League expierience.

The Red Devils fired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last November and are yet to replace him on a permanent basis, instead choosing to bring in Ralf Rangnick as an interim manager until the end of the season. Reports confirmed that United had interviewed Ajax boss Erik ten Hag and will look to speak to more candidates in the near future as they complete their due process.

And Hughes wants the next person in the Old Trafford dugout to have spent time coaching in England’s top-flight, hinting at ex-Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Fernandes set for reward

Since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, Bruno Fernandes has been a key figure for Manchester United and will be rewarded with a new deal.

Fernandes still has three years left on his current contract but his new deal will see him get closer to some of the top earners at the club as a sign of his current status in the dressing room. Fernandes began talks with senior figures at United over a year ago and though communication stalled, a breakthrough over the past seven days has seen all parties find common ground.

The new contract will run out in 2027, when Fernandes turns 33.
