According to reports, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag wants to raid his former club Ajax and sign three of their star players..
United have already signed two players on loan in the current January transfer window, with striker Wout Weghorst joining on loan from Burnley and goalkeeper Jack Butland joining on loan from Crystal Palace.
Ten Hag arrived at United in the summer after a five-year stint at Ajax, where he won three Eredivisie titles and two KNVB Cups.
He brought two Ajax players with him to Manchester, signing winger Antony for £86 million and defender Lisandro Martinez for £48.3 million, plus an additional £8.4 million in add-ons..
According to The Sun, Ten Hag is looking to sign some top Ajax talent and has three different players on his radar.
Jurrien Timber of Ajax is one of the players Ten Hag would like to sign, with the 21-year-old impressing at center-back this season.
Timber, who made his senior debut in 2020, has made 23 appearances for Ajax this season, six of which have come in the Champions League.
He has spent his entire career at Ajax, rising through the club’s youth academy, and has already earned 14 caps for the Netherlands.
Ten Hag is also interested in Ajax right-back Devyne Rensch, who has impressed in his 20 appearances this season..
The 19-year-old, like Timber, came up through the club’s youth system and earned his first Netherlands cap in 2021.
Ten Hag’s third Ajax target is Kenneth Taylor, a 20-year-old central midfielder who has five goals and three assists in 14 Eredivisie games this season.
Taylor, too, is an Ajax youth academy product who has three caps for the Netherlands after making his debut last year..
