Suspect Ten Hag’s demands are not financial and will relate to vetting and recruitment, reveals Gary Neville

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has insisted Ajax boss Erik ten Hag’s demands are not financial and he will want a say in control, recruitment, structure and youth as an announced agreement nears completion. Ten Hag is seen as the favorite for the United job.

Manchester United sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager in November due to their inconsistent displays and terrible defensive record. The English giants have appointed Ralf Rangnick as caretaker manager for the remainder of the season as they decide to conduct a thorough search before signing their next permanent manager. The German manager was unable to steady the ship at Old Trafford as the English giants left all major cup competitions.

Not only do the Red Devils also look unlikely to break into the top four after dropping six points to Tottenham following their loss to Everton on Saturday. Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag is considered the favorite to take the hot seat at Old Trafford and it has been reported that the Dutchman would like to have a say in United’s future. Pundit Gary Neville has claimed the deal is likely to go through and Ten Hag is making sure he doesn’t suffer the downfalls of his predecessors.

“I suspect Ten Hag’s demands are not financial, they will be about control, recruitment, structure, youth. I suspect he wants to come in and make sure he’s not exposed to what other managers have been exposed to over the past 10 years. It may be too much for Manchester United, and I suspect it will be a tough week or two for the club. I still think they will cross the line, but reports this morning indicated that Ten Hag was placing demands on the club that perhaps go beyond that,” Neville told Sky Sports.

Neville also admitted that former Ten Hag player Donny Van de Beek would not give the club a glowing endorsement which could hamper the situation.

“If you look at what Manchester United do to players, there’s not one that’s grown. Look at what they’ve done to Donny van de Beek If you’re Ten Hag, I think you’re on the phone with “Van de Beek. How’s it going over there, Donny? He’s not saying anything good, is he?”
