Next Man Utd manager: Crazy price to sack Ten Hag revealed as clear favourite to replace Dutchman emerges

The future of Erik ten Hag as Manchester United boss continues to be threatened and reports suggest that a clear favourite has emerged to replace him.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been looking at potential new managers for some time as many behind the scenes do not believe the Dutchman is the right man to take them forward.

Man Utd finished in eighth place in the Premier League table this season – their lowest finish since the 1989/90 campaign – which simply isn’t good enough for a club of their stature.

However, Ten Hag did manage to guide his team to winning the FA Cup after they overcame Manchester City in the final, which may have saved his bacon. This also means Man Utd have qualified for the Europa League.

Interestingly, journalist David McDonnell claims the fact that Man Utd have qualified for the Europa League means they would have to pay Ten Hag close to £9m in compensation if they did choose to sack him, despite that he only has a year remaining on his contract.

This could put Ratcliffe off parting ways with the coach despite that the Ineos chief certainly isn’t convinced by him – and neither are some supporters.
