Ajax manager Erik ten Hag wants more power on the decision-making at Manchester United, Fabrizio Romano claims.
The Dutchman is the clear favourite to become United’s next permanent manager, but he has yet to agree personal terms.
Negotiations are ongoing behind the scenes, but Romano reports that the 52-year-old is seeking more assurances from the club.
United have made poor transfer decisions over the years, and Ten Hag is keen to avoid the same with a clear strategy this summer.
Ten Hag wants to bring in players of his own instead of depending on United’s shortlist, which has been the case in the past.
Until he does not receive the guarantee, he may not agree terms over a contract. United must find a solution in the near future.
Elsewhere, it has been reported that Leipzig may consider hijacking United’s move for Ten Hag. They are ready to offer unconditional backing.
Ten Hag is likely to decide on his future before the end of April.
