Manchester United have reportedly made a decision over Erik ten Hag's future as manager.

Ten Hag's position in the Old Trafford dugout has been the subject of speculation over the last 12 months. United finished eighth in the Premier League table but managed to secure European football with victory in the FA Cup final.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Ineos Group were expected to undergo a full review at United following the conclusion of the season, which included Ten Hag's future as manager. Now an update has emerged claiming a decision has been made.

According to The Athletic, United have decided that Ten Hag will remain as the club's manager into next season. The report claims that United plan to keep the 54-year-old in charge for the start of the new campaign ahead of pre-season which begins next month.

It has also been reported that United will hold talks with Ten Hag over a new contract at the club. The Reds manager's current deal expires in 2025 after he signed a three-year contract after he arrived from Ajax two years ago.

Multiple reports including Press Association and BBC Sport have also stated that Ten Hag looks set to stay as United manager for next season.

The last couple of weeks have seen increased uncertainty over the plans heading into next season combined with doubts about Ten Hag's future. United are yet to reach any agreements over new signings, with the transfer window set to open on Friday.

A host of names were linked with potentially replacing Ten Hag as United manager in the event of his departure, including Thomas Tuchel, Roberto De Zerbi, Kieran McKenna and Mauricio Pochettino. Now those rumours may come to an end with the suggestions being that Ten Hag has the full backing of Ineos and the United hierarchy heading into the 2024/25 season.
