The Dutch manager recently took a holiday following the Red Devils’ triumph in the FA Cup, where they defeated Manchester City in the final. However, Erik ten Hag’s satisfaction is gradually turning into frustration as he remains uncertain about Manchester United’s plans for him in the upcoming 2024/25 season, as reported by The Telegraph.

According to the same report, the former Ajax coach is concerned that the prolonged delay in confirming his future with the club will negatively impact their activities in the summer transfer window, consequently affecting their prospects for the upcoming season.

Speculation regarding the manager’s continuation at Old Trafford has been circulating for the past few months. Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOS group have been evaluating the club’s performance under Ten Hag during the 2023/24 campaign. They have reportedly engaged with other potential coaches, although a decision on a new candidate is still pending.

Although the Premier League giants had shown interest in Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino, Tuchel has opted for a coaching hiatus following his departure from Bayern Munich, while Pochettino is unlikely to take on the role at Old Trafford. There were also rumors of a potential move for England’s Gareth Southgate, but the 53-year-old is expected to postpone any decisions regarding his future until after the conclusion of the European Championship.
