Stars agent spotted in England ahead of possible £35M Man United move
The agent of Ajax defender Jurrien Timber was spotted at Man United’s London offices ahead of his possible move to the giants
Now that Erik Ten Hag has been confirmed as the man that will lead the club into a new era, it will mean that the Dutchman could look to sign a number of players in a summer revamp.
This Man United squad has defensive issues, cannot score the goals the club need and will need to replace both Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic, as they will be leaving the club for nothing in the transfer window.
United’s transfer budget this summer will depend on how many fringe players Ten Hag is able to offload, with Dean Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba all linked with moves.
Erik ten Hag is reportedly keen to sign Ajax defender as he will want to improve that back-line – and he has reportedly made a request to the board to delve into that transfer kitty to get a deal done
Now – De Telegraaf have claimed The 20-year-old’s agent was seen at United’s London offices – the same base of operations Ten Hag has been working out of – and the youngster is open to joining the Red Devils.
Netherlands international Timber thrived under Ten Hag at Ajax and the Eredivisie champions will reportedly demand £35m for his signature.
Now that Ten Hag is the new boss, he will know what players can make an impact on the side and what players cannot
He knows Timber better than anyone, so if he feels that the defender is ready to test himself in the Premier League, then he will make sure that a deal is done for the very talented defender
But until a deal is done – there will continue to be more speculation
