Ajax coach Erik ten Hag is gaining support inside the Manchester United board room.

The Daily Mail says United will turn to Ajax coach Ten Hag if the club are unsuccessful in their attempt to prise Mauricio Pochettino away from PSG.

Ten Hag is said to be interested in the United job and Ajax would not stand in his way if he wants to leave at the end of the season, even though the 51-year-old is under contract in Amsterdam until 2023.

The two clubs enjoy a good relationship and Ajax chief executive Edwin van der Sar, the former United goalkeeper, played a key role in Donny van de Beek's £40million move to Old Trafford.

Ten Hag is viewed as one of the most progressive coaches in Europe and was approached by Tottenham to replace Jose Mourinho before signing a contract extension with Ajax in April.
