Erik Ten Hag’s agent was at heart of Robin van Persie’s transfer to Man Utd

Erik ten Hag looks to be the front runner for the hot seat at Manchester United, and his agent has already brokered deals to the Red Devils.

Ten Hag's agent, Kees Vos, is well known in England, and to United. Vos negotiated the deal that took Robin van Persie to United from Arsenal in 2012, which led to the Dutchman's only Premier League triumph.

Van Persie carried on his excellent spell at the Gunners to Old Trafford, and he bagged 58 goals in 105 appearances over a three-year stint at United. And Vos will be central to bringing Ten Hag to Manchester.

Vos also represents Daley Blind – but the pair only linked up in 2018, when Blind was already a United player.

However, Vos would have negotiated Blind's move back to Ajax that summer. Blind is just one of a high number of Dutch footballers who are represented by SEG – Sports Entertainment Group.

PSV Eindhoven's young star Cody Gakpo, Nice's Kasper Dolberg, and Brentford's centre-back Kristoffer Ajer are all also represented by SEG.

However, SEG's most high-profile client is undoubtedly Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

Guardiola's brother, Pere Guardiola, was recently added to the ranks of SEG last December.

SEG tweeted: "We are proud to announce that Pere Guardiola, one of the biggest agents in the world of football, joins SEG as a shareholder. As the agent of Pep Guardiola, amongst other big players, Pere has left his mark in the international football industry over the past decade with some remarkable highlights."

Interestingly, Ten Hag was one of Guardiola's assistances during the pair's time at Bayern Munich.
