Erik ten Hag to receive 'record-breaking' Man Utd salary as Dutchman finally confirmed as boss from next season
21st April 2022

NEWLY announced Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag will reportedly bank a 'record-breaking' salary for taking over as boss.

The 52-year-old has penned a three-year deal, with the option for a further 12 months.

While Ten Hag's Old Trafford earnings remain unknown, he is set to become the highest paid Dutchman in Premier League history.

Dutch outlet De Telegraaf claim he will earn more than countryman Louis van Gaal did during his fateful two-year spell at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal, who revealed earlier this month he was battling cancer, is said to have earned a £3.3million base salary at United – not including bonuses.

Therefore Ten Hag's wages will exceed that number, with his official salary yet to be confirmed.

Last permanent gaffer at Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, took home a whopping £7.5m-per-year.

And after being sacked back in November club chiefs were forced to pay the Norwegian a full year's worth of his salary as part of a severance package.

Money though is not a problem for Ten Hag.

His family are claimed to be one of the richest in Holland thanks to their successful real estate company, plus earnings from several other financial companies.
