The agent of Ajax defender Jurrien Timber was spotted at Manchester United’s London office as Erik ten Hag plots a reunion with the youngster, according to a report on Metro UK
Ten Hag worked with the 20-year-old defender at Ajax and is keen on reuniting with the Dutch defender at Manchester United.
The 20-year-old’s agent was seen at United’s London offices last week – the same base of operations Ten Hag has been working out of – and the youngster is open to joining the Red Devils.
Ajax are believed to want as much as £35million for the versatile center-back, who has also been tracked by German champions Bayern Munich
Speaking about Timber earlier this month, Ten Hag said: “I think that all top clubs in Europe have Timber in their sights.”
Addressing the speculation over his future, Timber himself told Het Parool:
“I’m good at Ajax. I can still learn a lot, especially if we continue to play in the Champions League.”
On Ten Hag, the defender added: “He deserved it [the United job]. Ten Hag has been very important to me personally.
“Under him, I became the footballer, the man I am today. The coach talked to me a lot. He’s been very critical, in a good, constructive way. I won’t forget that anytime soon.”
