The Manchester team reached an agreement to recruit Jurrien Timber from Ajax for £ 30 million, at the request of new coach Erik Ten Hag.
Immediately after launching the new team, Ten Hag urged the big bosses at Old Trafford to quickly close the contract and bring in the 20-year-old versatile defender Jurrien Timber.
Timber is Erik Ten Hag’s pet at Ajax who has just won the Dutch Championship. Therefore, he knew well the potential and qualifications of this young man.
According to transfer journalist Pedro Almeida, MU and Ajax have agreed a fee of 30 million pounds.
Fabrizio Romano further information, in the past 48 hours, Ten Hag and the Red Devils leaders continuously discussed to close the deal soon.
Timber is still very young, despite his short height for a defender (1m79), but he has good ball handling and footwork skills.
Last season, he often played in the role of a right-side centre-back. Timber is also quite energetic when taking on the role of a right winger.
Another source revealed, Coach Ten Hag also wants to bring back Pau Torres to enhance the quality of MU’s defense.
However, they will face competition from Tottenham and Chelsea. Besides, the contract release fee of the Spaniard is up to 51 million pounds.
