The British media outlet have mentioned that sources close to the negotiations have claimed that “Everything is now agreed” and the move will be completed soon.
Ten Hag has won every single domestic title as the head coach of Ajax and this term, his team is currently on top of the table, four points ahead of rivals PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie.
Most notably, in the 2018-19 season, the 52-year-old guided the Dutch giants to Champions League victories against the then champions Real Madrid and Italian giants Juventus.
The Telegraph claim that it is likely that Ten Hag will bring assistant coach Mitchell van der Gaag to Old Trafford.
The Dutch boss would become the 5th (permanent) manager to take charge of Man Utd since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, who won the Premier League title in his last campaign.
It must be remembered that United have not won a single trophy since winning the Europa League, Community Shield and the League Cup under Mourinho (2016-17). Would Ten Hag be able to end the trophy drought? Only time will tell.
