Manchester United's Erik ten Haag is set to stay as the club manager going into the next season as INEOS completes its post-season review. The Dutch manager was under pressure after a lackluster performance in the league and Champions League. However, an FA Cup victory over local rivals Manchester City ensured Erik ten Hag had a case to stay.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Dutchman is set to enter talks for a new contract. Negotiations on a new contract and a summer transfer window plan are being done with his camp while INEOS have been quite impressed by Erik ten Hag's influence in developing a younger generation of players including Garnacho, Rasmus Hojlund, and Kobbie Mainoo, which also aligns with the INEOS mantra of investing in youth players.

Significant injury issues during the last season and an FA Cup triumph went in Erik ten Hag's favor as he will be at the helm for the next season at Manchester United. Despite the review process taking a long time and speculation of many managers linked for the job, Erik ten Hag can finally be relieved of the hanging sword over his head and focus on planning the next season with Manchester United.

Back in May, after an emphatic victory in the FA Cup final, Erik ten Hag was asked about his future at United. The Dutchman emphasized his two trophies and an eagerness to win more at the club.

"The team is progressing, and we are winning trophies. Two trophies in two years is not bad. Three finals is not bad, but we have to keep going. I'm not satisfied with it.

We have to do better and if they don't want me anymore, then I'll go anywhere else to win trophies because that is what I have done my whole career"
