Confirmed: Agent of Man Utd transfer target ‘spotted’ at Man Utd’s London office

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.”
