Erik ten Hag is to stay as Manchester United's manager.

The Dutchman has been the subject of intense speculation over his future at the club after a disappointing Premier League campaign, which saw United finish eighth.

However they beat rivals Manchester City - the Premier League champions - to win the FA Cup final in a surprise 2-1 victory at Wembley at the end of the season.

United have spent the past fortnight reviewing the 2023-24 campaign and overall first-team operation, leading to more questions over Ten Hag's position.

But United have decided the 54-year-old will stay in his post after considering all eventualities, it is understood.

According to reports, Ten Hag, who has been at the club for two seasons during which time United won the League Cup in 2023, is now in talks over a new contract.

He signed a three-year deal with United in 2022 - which is due to expire next summer - taking over from the club's interim coach Ralf Rangnick after former coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked.

Former Bayern Munich and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel held talks with United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe in France last week but was no longer under consideration for the manager role at Old Trafford.

While Ten Hag is aware of reports the club have been in contact with other managers, he has always wanted to stay but is realistic when it comes to expectations about his future.
