Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has been waiting patiently for news surrounding his future at Old Trafford after leading the Reds to another trophy.

This season has mainly been one to forget but United supporters will be able to look back on the campaign with a degree of fondness after the scenes at Wembley Stadium last month. The 2-1 victory over Manchester City was widely unexpected and managed to clinch United Europa League football next season.

It was also Ten Hag's second trophy in as many years which has led to an outpouring of support from the fanbase. In our latest look at the media headlines, it appears some trouble could be arising for the Dutchman though.

Ten Hag threat revealed

According to Give Me Sport, United's incoming director Dan Ashworth has Gareth Southgate at the top of his list to become the club's manager. The England head coach has refused to comment on speculation linking him with the United job but it is believed he is admired by INEOS.

The report also claims that Ten Hag went on holiday believing he would be the man to lead United next season.

What MEN Sport says: It has come to the stage now where United need to put everyone out of their misery and decide what happens next for Ten Hag. You may not agree with Chelsea's acceptance of Mauricio Pochettino's exit but at least they came to a swift decision, conducted a full search for a new manager and appointed him. The Reds seem to be dragging their heels for whatever reason and this will clearly have an impact on the summer plans too.

United 'make decision' on Amrabat

According to, United have yet to contact Fiorentina about signing Sofyan Amrabat permanently. The Moroccan featured 30 times for the Reds this season playing mainly as a defensive midfielder.

Amrabat was utilised as a left-back during the Reds' rotten run with injuries in that position.

What MEN Sport says: No matter who is the manager next season, it is fair to say that they will not look to sign Amrabat permanently. The emergence of Kobbie Mainoo has been bad news for Christian Eriksen and the same can be said for the Moroccan in regards to playing time. He did not make the impact that was expected and the United boss will probably wish to use the transfer fee elsewhere.
