£35M star announces ‘he wants assurances’ before completing Man United move
Ajax star Jurrien Timber has announced that he wants assurances he will get game time – before he decides to sign with Man United
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
However – Ahead of hiss possible move to the Premier League – Timber has come out and stated that he wants assurances of his game time before making a decision about his immediate future
Timber said: “In the end, my gut feeling will be the deciding factor. The picture has to be right.
“You can go to a big club. But if you’re not going to play there it’s better to stay with Ajax. And Ajax is also a big club.
“We play football in the Champions League and I play there together with the best players in the Netherlands. That is not nothing”
It seems that Timber will be the player that Ten hag signs to improve that back-line and anyone that has watched Ajax over the past few seasons will be impressed with the type of player that he is
He may not be the tallest central defender – but he is a very good one that is proven at the very highest level
