After winning the league with Ajax Amsterdam, the Dutchman has taken over a new project for the next season at the Theatre of Dreams. Ending his spell with the Amsterdam-based club, the new gaffer flew to London on Monday and has already begun ideating for the summer.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils are set to face Crystal Palace which marks their final match of the 2021/22 Premier League season. The Dutchman will be present at Selhurst Park to see what transpires in Ralf Rangnick’s final match at the helm.
Man United have lost their chance to secure a Champions League spot as they surely will not finish in the top four. The final match will determine if they will play in the Europa League or the Conference League next season.
After the season concludes, the club intends to unveil ten Hag officially as the manager at Old Trafford sometime in the coming week. The Dutchman certainly faces a difficult task to make the Red Devils the eminent force in English football.
Steve McClaren, the assistant during Sir Alex Ferguson’s historic 1999 treble-winning year will also be presented as ten hag’s right hand. The duo has worked previously on many occasions and shars an understanding which can help the club in the long run.

Ten Hag understands the budget he will be provided with this summer for the transfers and he intends to maintain the style of play he did with Ajax. An exodus of players is set to take place during the transfer window and we will have to see which players he will count on for the rebuild.
Not to forget the academy players also could make more of their senior team appearances under ten Hag. The Dutchman is known to have groomed youngsters, and this could be a chance for some of the players like Alvaro Fernandez and Alejandro Garnacho to step up and fight for their spot.
