Manchester United continue to hold positive talks with manager Erik ten Hag over a contract extension, signaling their commitment to the Dutchman despite a challenging season. Ten Hag, whose future had been in doubt, is now set to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

In the 2023/24 season, Ten Hag led United to an eighth-place finish, their worst in the Premier League era. However, his tenure was marked by a significant achievement: defeating arch-rivals Manchester City to lift the FA Cup. This victory has strengthened his position and solidified the club's confidence in his leadership.

According to Sky Sports News, the club has prioritized reaching an agreement with Ten Hag on fresh terms before making any changes to the coaching staff. The ongoing discussions this week indicate a mutual desire to continue the partnership and build on the recent success.

As Manchester United looks to the future, extending Ten Hag's contract appears to be a key step in their strategy to reclaim their position at the top of English football.
