    The Dutch tactician has ripped up the remainder of his deal with the Amsterdam giants and will get straight to work this week, he has confirmed

    And, one of ten Hag's priorities is to cement Cristiano Ronaldo as his No1 striker – in the clearest indication the Portuguese superstar STILL has a future with the club.

    Ten Hag said after Ajax's last game: "From tomorrow, my focus will be on United, and I will of course get deep into things there.

    “What I have to say about it is, the detailed analysis still has to begin, I still have to work with the team, but let me be clear that at United there are a lot of good players around.

    “We have to make them function as a team but definitely Ronaldo, he is a giant.”

    Meanwhile, Luke Shaw is said to be left sweating on a new deal with the club – with ten Hag yet to sign off on his new £180,000-per-week contract.

    “I would love to play Champions League football again. I know how much fun it is, but it isn’t essential for me.”

    That's according to West Ham legend Frank McAvennie.

    He told Football Insider: “Well it looks like Cavani is going which is a ludicrous decision.

    De Jong fancies City over Utd

    EXCLUSIVE: Frenkie de Jong is willing to kiss goodbye to nearly £6million in unpaid wages to clinch a move to Manchester City, writes PHIL THOMAS.

    As SunSport revealed, Erik ten Hag wants the Barcelona star at rivals United but City chief Pep Guardiola is also a big fan – missing out three years ago when Barca’s £400,000-a-week after tax was too good for the Dutch star to turn down.

    And while the Etihad money men are not keen on paying out the £65million it cost to take him to the Nou Camp from Ajax in 2019, De Jong’s stance on money he is owed may prove decisive.

    Barca are still fighting their way out of a financial crisis, which saw players defer 40 per cent of wages for a year.

    And midfielder De Jong is still owed a bumper figure, which he could waive to make a move happen. Guardiola is in the market for a midfielder to replace the departing Fernandinho.

    But Barca may request Bernardo Silva or Raheem Sterling as part of any deal. Boss Xavi revealed this week that De Jong remains a key part of his plans.

    But he conceded that the club could still sell the 25-year-old this summer. He said: "For me, he is a very important player.

    Shaw waiting on bumper new £180k-a-week deal 

    EXCLUSIVE: Luke Shaw will be kept waiting on a fresh £180,000-a-week Old Trafford contract until his new manager has given the thumbs up, writes JOSHUA MBU.

    Shaw, 26, has just one more season left on his current deal and so far Manchester United bosses have been in no rush to come up with an extension.

    Instead United insiders insist the club will trigger their 12-month option to keep the left back until 2024.

    And that will give ten Hag the time to make an informed decision on whether the defender can be a part of his longer term plans.

    Shaw has had a stop-start Old Trafford career ever since his £32million signing from Southampton in 2014.

    Sparkling spells have been offset by serious injuries and a battle to win over former boss Jose Mourinho.

    And although he was back to his best last season, Ten Hag wants to assess him properly before committing to a long-term decision.

    United hold a similar view on Brazil midfielder Fred, 29, although they would be more willing to listen to offers this summer at the right price.
