Bundesliga side RB Leipzig is set to rival Manchester United for the services of Ajax coach Erik ten Hag.
Hag has strongly been linked with a move to Old Trafford as they seek a permanent replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with talks said to have happened last week between the two parties.
Dutch portal De Telegraaf now reports that Leipzig is aware of the €2 million buyout clause for the Ajax boss and is willing to pay it. Leipzig has reportedly offered ten Hag ‘an excellent multi-year offer’ and are eager to beat United in the race to secure his services.

Leipzig is on track to finish in the top four this season but are miles adrift of Bayern in the title race.
