And Erik ten Hag is reportedly willing to join the Manchester-based club from Ajax.

But Louis Van Gaal has advised him against the move.

“Erik ten Hag is a great coach and that is always good for Manchester United.

MISSED THIS?  Joe Aribo close to Southampton move.

“But Manchester United are a commercial club, so it’s a difficult choice for a coach. He’d better go to a football club.”
