Erik ten Hag is reportedly ‘increasingly frustrated’ with the length of Manchester United’s season review. The Dutchman supposedly believes that the uncertainty over his future will affect the club’s summer transfer plans.

United’s owners, including INEOS chief Sir Jim Ratcliffe and co-chairman Joel Glazer, are conducting a review into United’s season. Discussions reportedly include whether Ten Hag will be kept on as boss despite a largely underwhelming second campaign at Old Trafford.

The Dutchman led United to FA Cup glory, following his Carabao Cup triumph the year earlier, but the Red Devils were poor for large periods of the season. Ten Hag’s side finished eighth in the Premier League and will only compete in the Europa League on account for their domestic cup success.

It is now 17 days since United won the FA Cup and Ten Hag reportedly remains in the dark over his future. According to the Telegraph, the 54-year-old is ‘increasingly frustrated’ with the delay in deciding whether he will be in charge of the first team next season.

Ten Hag believes that the impasse could impact United’s summer plans. INEOS were widely reported to be set to oversee an overhaul of the senior squad this summer but any proposed moves could be delayed due to the uncertainty over who will be in the dugout.

Meanwhile, the United boss is aware that INEOS have spoken to potential candidates to replace him. Ratcliffe is widely reported to have held talks with Thomas Tuchel in Monaco, preparing for the possible exit of Ten Hag.

However, Tuchel has decided he does not want to take the job. Having left Bayern Munich at the end of the Bundesliga season, the German will instead take a break from football before assessing his options.

United had also identified Ipswich’s Kieran McKenna as a possible replacement for Ten Hag.
