Erik ten Hag cut a relaxed figure as he was pictured for the first time since Manchester United’s FA Cup final victory against Manchester City enjoying dinner with his wife Bianca while on holiday in Ibiza. 

While his future as Manchester United manager still hangs in the balance, the 54-year-old Dutch coach appeared to stretch back in his chair as he supped on a glass of wine. 

He was also wearing a cap emblazoned with the logo ‘BOSS’ on the side. Perhaps a subtle hint that he may be staying at Old Trafford? Who knows.  

United have endured a tumultuous season, slumping to eighth in the Premier League standings and crashing out of Europe, but Ten Hag still managed to guide his side to silverware this season, clinching the FA Cup.  

Despite that, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Manchester United’s leadership team are now set to make a decision on Ten Hag’s future later this week.

Red Devils’ bosses had been holding a review into the season and had also reportedly been scouring the managerial market for a potential replacement for their current coach. 

Thomas Tuchel has emerged as one of the favourites to succeed the manager and had reportedly held talks with Ratcliffe in Monaco last week.   

It is understood the German is no longer in consideration after he revealed he wanted to take a break from football, following a tough season with Bayern Munich. 

According to The Telegraph, Ten Hag has been growing frustrated by how long United’s end-of-season review has taken.

United are set to return for pre-season training during the first two weeks of July, before heading off on tour to the USA where they will take on Arsenal on Saturday July 27 in Los Angeles in a pre-season friendly. 

That means whoever takes up the role as Man United’s manager for the 2024-25 season won’t have long to get their ducks in a row before the new season starts. 

The Telegraph claims that the Dutchman is anxious that the club is ‘in danger of falling behind in this summer’s transfer market’. 

United had endured a torrid season, but the Dutchman guided the Red Devils to FA Cup glory, beating Man City in the final at Wembley in May

Ten Hag will be keen to strengthen in several areas, particularly defense, after he was bereft of so many injuries to key centre backs in the past year

England boss Gareth Southgate (centre) is one coach who is admired by INEOS, and admitted he could step away from England if they do not win Euro 2024

United need to strengthen in several areas this summer, including a new holding midfielder, another forward and a centre back. 

Casemiro has failed to impress this season and securing a new defensive midfielder may be a priority for the club.

United have also been left hampered by a string of injuries to key defenders this season and may want to bolster their options at centre back, particularly now that Raphael Varane has left the club. 

But as yet, Ten Hag has reportedly not heard if he will remain in charge at Old Trafford next season, with Ratcliffe and INEOS also admirers of Gareth Southgate, who today admitted that he could leave his role as England boss, if the Three Lions don’t win Euro 2024.
