ERIK TEN HAG has admitted that there is nothing stopping him from raiding Ajax for their finest talent when he joins Manchester United.
The Dutchman has agreed a three-year deal to take charge at Old Trafford next season, quitting Dutch giants Ajax in the process.
It’s been suggested that the Eredivisie leaders may have wanted to make an agreement with United dictating that Ten Hag be banned from bringing his best players with him.
But the 52-year-old himself has confirmed that this is not the case.
Ten Hag said: “There’s no agreement in place that would exclude me from taking players to Manchester United.
“Which Ajax players are interesting?
“I have very good players here, but that’s a non-issue.”
Man United have recent history in dealing with Ajax, having signed Donny van de Beek for £34million in 2020.
SunSport revealed last month that United like ex-West Ham star Sebastien Haller.
The Ivorian has been in fine form for Ten Hag’s side this season, netting 33 goals in 40 appearances.

It’s suggested that he could be available for £35m.
One Ajax star United WON’T be signing, however, is full-back Noussair Mazraoui.
The Red Devils held an interest in the Moroccan, although he has chosen to join Bayern Munich.
Ten Hag was eager to sign Steven Bergwijn for Ajax in January, only to be knocked back by Spurs.
The forward is expected to leave North London this summer, although it is yet to be seen whether Ten Hag’s interest in him would extend to Old Trafford.
