Club trying to ‘hijack’ Ten Hag, Man Utd move with ‘bank-busting’ offer



RB Leipzig have reportedly offered a ‘bank-busting’ contract to Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, who has been heavily linked with Man Utd.

This is according to the Mirror, who say the Bundesliga club opened talks with Ten Hag ‘weeks ago’ and have now made an offer for him to become their new manager.

Ten Hag or anyone else will need a miracle with this Man Utd…

It is reported that the 52-year-old is ‘taking their offer seriously’ due to being ‘frustrated’ at Man Utd for failing to make him an offer.

Leipzig believe that Ten Hag can ‘transform the club into contenders both at home and abroad’.

While he is said to be interested in moving to Old Trafford, it is being widely reported that the Red Devils see the Ajax boss as their ideal new manager.

Voetbal International journalist Freek Jansen claimed over the weekend that reports of Ten Hag being close to an appointment are wide of the mark.

He said: “This week I spoke to several people including Erik ten Hag.

“My information is that the only way he will join Manchester United is when everything fits right. His management is working on it, he has a huge list of demands.”

He elaborated on that theme during the Pak Schaal Podcast, saying: “Here in the Netherlands, we are less of a shot with bullets.

“The information that I, and what other well-versed club watchers around me also have, is that Ten Hag is not out of it yet.

“Of course, he thinks United is an attractive club; who doesn’t, and he has also spoken to the club management. But otherwise, he leaves it all to his management.”

Due to being fed up with the vast number of questions Ten Hag has been getting asked about Man Utd’s rumoured interest, Ajax banned English media from attending his pre-match press conference on Friday.

Sky Sports News reporter Gary Cotterill said: “As Ten Hag was preparing his team to face Sparta Rotterdam, the media team were busily rejecting the applications from the English media to attend the post-match news conference. There will be no radio, no newspapers, no Sky Sports News.

“They don’t want him asked, in English, about Manchester United. His English isn’t that great, either. Ajax say he needs to concentrate on winning another [Eredivisie] title. It’s by no means a given – they’re only four points ahead [of PSV] with six games to play.”
