Manchester United want Ruud van Nistelrooy back in coaching role, Eric ten Hag on the verge of extending

Manchester United is on the verge of solidifying their future under Erik ten Hag, as the Dutch manager is set to sign a new contract with the club. Negotiations have advanced to the final stages this week, with ten Hag’s agents working to finalize the terms of the deal.

As part of the new contract, there will be changes to the coaching staff. One of the most significant additions is former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, who is being considered for a prominent role in ten Hag’s new staff. Talks with van Nistelrooy are ongoing, and he is reportedly tempted by the opportunity to return to Old Trafford in a coaching capacity.

Van Nistelrooy’s potential appointment comes as Manchester United seeks to build on the progress made under ten Hag. The former striker’s experience and connection to the club could provide a valuable boost to the Red Devils’ development.

With ten Hag’s contract renewal and the possible inclusion of van Nistelrooy, Manchester United aims to create a strong foundation for future success. The club’s commitment to securing top-tier managerial talent and enhancing their coaching staff shows the ambition to return to the pinnacle of English and European football.
