Fabrizio Romano provides “90% possibility” update on Manchester United contract development



| Last Updated:


Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on Manchester United and a contract renewal that is almost complete.

The Reds have finally made their decision on Erik ten Hag following the end-of-season review at Old Trafford.

INEOS conducted a detailed review and assessed the various managerial options on the market before concluding that the best course of action was to continue with Ten Hag.

The Dutchman has won two trophies during his first two seasons at Old Trafford and is keen to improve the team following a disappointing Premier League campaign last term.

However, INEOS will also be discussing a new contract with the 54-year-old, with his current deal expiring in the summer of 2025.

“As reported yesterday, Erik ten Hag will be staying as Manchester United manager, and now the two parties are also advancing in talks over a new contract for the Dutch coach,” Fabrizio Romano told the Daily Briefing.

“What I’m hearing at the moment is that there is more than a 90% possibility to see Ten Hag extending his contract at Man United.

“As for the length of the contract, discussions are still ongoing, but the conversation is about a deal until 2027, so two more years on top of the year he already has left on his current contract.

“The offer is on the table, and it’s a positive discussion because Ten Hag, despite all the rumours on his future and his situation, respected Manchester United’s decision to have a long review and consider all the options and take their time before deciding the future of the manager.

“Ten Hag knows now that he’s staying at Manchester United, and he will be involved in discussions for the future, but now it’s about discussing his contract, and from what I’m hearing a potential new deal until 2027 is really concrete.

“It’s 90% confirmed, both parties want to make it happen, with Ten Hag happy to have a long-term vision together with the owners and directors…”
