Bayern Munich and Ajax are reportedly keen on Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag, who could be sacked from his Old Trafford post at the end of the season.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has reportedly attracted interest from Bayern Munich and Ajax amid speculation over his future at Old Trafford.

Making the switch to the Red Devils during the summer of 2022 from the Eredivisie, the 54-year-old enjoyed a productive first campaign in England.

Ten Hag led his Man United troops to a third-placed finish in the Premier League - securing a return to the Champions League - while also lifting the EFL Cup at Wembley in February 2023.

The 2023-24 term has been a real struggle for United, who were dumped out of Europe at the group stage and are at risk of missing out on continental football all together next season.

Man United are sitting eighth in the Premier League standings heading into the final day of the season, needing to better Newcastle United's result to have any chance of making it into the Europa Conference League via league position.

Man United's Ten Hag wanted by Bayern Munich?

According to The Mirror, Man United boss Ten Hag is wanted by two notable European clubs ahead of the 2024-25 season.

The report claims that Bayern Munich are interested in securing the services of the Dutchman, with the Bavarian giants looking to bounce back following a disappointing campaign.

Thomas Tuchel is departing from his managerial duties at the Allianz Arena after a campaign in which his side finished third in the Bundesliga, losing possession of the German crown for the first time in 12 years.

Despite the goalscoring antics of summer arrival Harry Kane, Bayern were unable to earn any silverware across the term, with a low moment of the season being a DFB-Pokal defeat to third-tier Saarbrucken.

It is believed that interested parties in Ten Hag feel that he will be sacked from his position at Old Trafford, regardless of whether Man United beat local rivals Manchester City in the FA Cup final next weekend.

Ajax 'also keen on Ten Hag'

As well as Bayern, it is understood that Eredivisie powerhouses Ajax are keen on bringing Man United's Ten Hag back to the Netherlands this summer.

The 54-year-old left the Amsterdam-based club to pick up the top job at Old Trafford in 2022 following a trophy-laden spell in charge of the 36-time Dutch champions.

Ten Hag won two Eredivisie titles with Ajax, as well as guiding his former side to a Champions League semi-final versus Tottenham Hotspur in 2019.

The Dutchman could manage Man United for the last time in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, when the Red Devils travel to Brighton & Hove Albion.
