Manchester United extend Eric ten Hag’s contract

Manchester United have triggered a one-year extension in Erik ten Hag’s contract to keep him at the club until 2026.

The Dutchman’s previous deal, which he signed when he was appointed in 2022, was due to expire in 2025.

“I am very pleased to have reached an agreement with the club to continue working together,” Ten Hag said.

“Looking back at the past two years, we can reflect with pride on two trophies and many examples of progression from where we were when I joined.

“However, we must also be clear that there is still lots of hard work ahead to reach the levels expected of Manchester United, which means challenging for English and European titles.

“In my discussions with the club, we have found complete unity in our vision for reaching those goals, and we are all strongly committed to making that journey together.”

Ten Hag, who joined United from Ajax, will remain on the existing terms of his contract, meaning he will keep the transfer veto which formed part of the agreement when he arrived from Ajax in 2022.

United finished third in the Premier League during Ten Hag’s first term at the club as the Dutchman ended the club’s six-year wait for silverware with victory against Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final. However his future was in serious doubt following a 2023-2024 season which saw United finish eighth in the Premier League before ending on a high with victory in the FA Cup final against Manchester City.
