Ajax ‘expect’ Jurrien Timber and Mohammed Kudus to seek summer move amidst Manchester United links
The defender and forward are attracting interest from the Premier League. Last summer, the Holland international was being eyed by the Red Devils, while the Ghanaian has been added to the Old Trafford side’s shortlist.
Erik ten Hag was linked with a reunion with Timber, with the gaffer keen on bolstering the Old Trafford side’s backline ahead of the start of the current campaign. However, the 21-year-old stayed put with De Godenzonen.
Louis van Gaal, the former head coach of the Netherlands national team and United, had advised the Holland international to remain in Amsterdam to avoid harming his World Cup hopes.
In the end, the Red Devils managed to get a hold of another Ajax centre-back, Lisandro Martinez. The Argentina international has made an evident difference in our defence.
The 25-year-old has been paired up with Raphael Varane on a majority of occasions by Ten Hag in Manchester. The two have formed a solid partnership this season.
On the other hand, the Dutch manager was the one who brought Kudus to the Amsterdam-based club in the summer of 2020. After a couple of campaigns playing mainly as a backup, the 22-year-old is thriving at the moment.
The Ghana international has been prolific for De Godenzonen this season. In the 2022 World Cup, the forward also shone for the Black Stars.
