Ajax has given permission for the formal conversation to take place and has not interfered with it.

According to sources close to Ten Hag and Ajax, talks have taken place regarding the financial aspect as well as how to manage a possible announcement in terms of timing and presentation if the process proceeds that way, considering Ajax’s tight title competition.


United, on the other hand, insists that this is premature and that no formal investigation has been launched in this regard. They’ve made it obvious that they don’t have a favored candidate for next season’s head coach yet, and that they’re simply going through the motions to find the perfect man.

All candidates will be interviewed to determine remuneration numbers and ease of appointment. When the club is still going through its shortlist, the club believes it is dishonest to depict Ten Hag as the frontrunner for the role.

Mauricio Pochettino and Luis Enrique are also in the running, although Julen Lopetegui appears to have ruled himself out by saying: “I’m exactly where I wanted to be. Will you stay on Sevilla’s bench next season? There is no question in my mind.”

Ten Hag would be the easiest to secure, according to sources, because Ajax anticipates him to depart and has been easy to work with.

Meanwhile, Pochettino will leave Paris Saint-Germain on his own terms, not those of another club.

According to reports, firing the Argentine and his team would cost between £15 million and £20 million, money that could be saved if he was offered and accepted another job.

Pochettino and Ten Hag have long been seen as the preferred candidates for the post, a line of reporting that United hasn’t refuted.

Enrique’s appeal is hampered by his commitment to Spain, which he will captain at the World Cup in Qatar.
