The Dutchman is thought to be in the frame for the Man United managerial role, alongside Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino who has been coy over reports linking him with the Old Trafford gig.

Unlike Ten Hag who has said he's 'ready' to leave the Netherlands in a bid to land a new challenge.

He told de Volkskrant: "I think I'm ready for it. I would be happy to take on that challenge.

"But I'm not chasing it. If it turns out that that step will never come, I will not say that my coaching career has failed.

"But I think I have enough competences to take on that challenge."

Ten Hag, 51, has worked wonders at Ajax since taking the job in 2017.

He's helped his side win two league titles and enjoyed a stunning Champions League campaign in the 2018/19 term.
