“I’m told” – Fabrizio Romano now drops major Man Utd update on £31.5m star
According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United target, Jurrien Timber will not demand a move away from Ajax this summer, instead of leaving it up to the two teams to discuss.
What is the most recent Jurrien Timber news?
As Erik ten Hag prepares to launch his United revolution, one name that has been repeatedly connected with a move to Old Trafford is one of his former Ajax charges, Timber.
The now-United manager gave the Dutchman his Eredivisie debut, and rumors say that Ten Hag is eager to reunite with him at his new club.
What did Romano have to say about Manchester United’s pursuit of Timber?
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Romano stated that Timber will not try to force the matter of leaving Ajax, instead of leaving it up to the two teams to strike a deal.
“From what I’ve heard, Timber will be very respectful of Ajax as the initial point,” he said. He is leaving the situation with the clubs because he does not want to end his relationship with Ajax. He isn’t desperate to quit the club or join Manchester United as soon as feasible. He’s not compelled to make this step.”
Timber and Ten Hag may form an ideal partnership at Manchester United.
Timer, who is valued at £31.5 million by Transfermarkt, would revive a strong connection with Ten Hag that flourished at Ajax.
Indeed, the Dutch manager praised the center-presence back in the locker room, stating, “He will not immediately be the leader of the Ajax first team, but he dares to speak out immediately and has not been bashful in the locker room.” Those are vital qualities to have if you want to advance.”
“Maybe he can play with Harry Maguire, this kid is ice cold,” former Ajax midfielder Marciano Vink said of the young defender. This man is so at ease on the ball, he anticipates like the greatest, and a defender needs to anticipate. You may be a powerful defender, tall, but if you don’t know how to anticipate where the ball is going or the attacker, you’re not a good attacker, but this guy anticipates like the best.
“For me, it’s someone who can play in the Premier League but also help Man United from the back.”
Timber, who has already worked with Ten Hag, should be able to hit the ground running at United faster than any other possible center-back targets the club may have.
While he may not seek to force a move to Old Trafford, Romano believes the ball is in United’s court to complete a deal.
