Erik ten Hag cut a relaxed figure as he was pictured for the first time since Manchester United’s FA Cup final victory against Manchester City enjoying dinner with his wife Bianca while on holiday in Ibiza. 

The Manchester United manager’s future was decided on Tuesday evening, hours after the 54-year-old Dutch coach appeared to stretch back in his chair as he supped on a glass of wine. 

He was also wearing a cap emblazoned with the logo ‘BOSS’ on the side. Perhaps a subtle hint that he was assured of staying at Old Trafford? Who knows.  

United have endured a tumultuous season, slumping to eighth in the Premier League standings and crashing out of Europe, but Ten Hag still managed to guide his side to silverware this season, clinching the FA Cup.  

Despite that, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Manchester United’s leadership team took their time when deciding whether to keep the manager on after the end of the campaign.

Red Devils’ bosses had been holding a review into the season and had also reportedly been scouring the managerial market for a potential replacement for their current coach. 

Thomas Tuchel emerged as one of the favourites to succeed the manager and had reportedly held talks with Ratcliffe in Monaco last week.   

However, the German fell out of consideration after he revealed he wanted to take a break from football, following a tough season with Bayern Munich. 

According to The Telegraph, Ten Hag had been growing frustrated by how long United’s end-of-season review has taken.

United are set to return for pre-season training during the first two weeks of July, before heading off on tour to the USA where they will take on Arsenal on Saturday July 27 in Los Angeles in a pre-season friendly. 

The outlet claimed that the Dutchman was anxious that the club is ‘in danger of falling behind in this summer’s transfer market’.

United need to strengthen in several areas this summer, including a new holding midfielder, another forward and a centre back. 

Casemiro has failed to impress this season and securing a new defensive midfielder may be a priority for the club.

United have also been left hampered by a string of injuries to key defenders this season and may want to bolster their options at centre back, particularly now that Raphael Varane has left the club.
