Erik ten Hag would have taken the Manchester United job knowing that he has a huge task on his hands of turning this club around. The Red Devils have been nowhere near their best ever since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013. Since then, many top managers have come to Old Trafford but nobody has been able to take them back to the top of the English game.
It will be interesting to see if Ten Hag is the man to do it. He does have an impressive resume from his time at Ajax, who he enjoyed great success with in domestic competitions and in Europe, even guiding them to the Champions League semi finals a few years back in a remarkable campaign for the Dutch giants.
Manchester United will be hoping that he can turn things around at Old Trafford as well but for that to happen, they will need to back him in the summer transfer window.
One player that Manchester United have quite surprisingly been linked with in recent times is Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante and there is an interesting update on the French World Cup winner’s situation at the club.
Manchester United have chance to sign the Chelsea superstar
As reported by Metro, the club are considering an offer for Kante and Chelsea are ready to listen to offers for the French World Cup winner.
Kante has not been at the top of his game this season, having struggled with fitness. But at the same time, he was one of the key reasons why Chelsea ended up winning the Champions League title last season.
Thus, it remains to be seen if Manchester United do indeed make an attempt to sign Kante from Chelsea this summer. It would not be the first time that they have signed a big name midfielder from the club though if it happened.
