Ajax boss Erik ten Hag has taken English lessons as he gears up for talks with Manchester United, according to Daily Mail.

Ten Hag is reportedly studying English in a bid to ensure he has a fluent grasp of the language ahead of a possible move to Manchester United this summer.

Ten Hag and PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino are the leading candidates for the Manchester United job.

Last summer Ten Hag was a contender to become new Tottenham head coach, however language barrier was an issue during talks, according to the report.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, formerly of Everton and Chelsea, is also reportedly being considered for the Manchester United job.
