Man United are looking to bolster their defense this summer, and Jurrien Timber previously worked for Erik ten Hag at Ajax.
Jurrien Timber, an Ajax defender, will think about his future while on vacation, amid Manchester United’s interest.
Timber, a 20-year-old center-back who can also play at right-back, is being considered by new United manager Erik ten Hag. Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are available for trade, and United wants to bolster both areas.
Timber was speaking at the Netherlands national team’s training camp in Zeist, before their four Nations League matches against Belgium, Wales, and Poland beginning next month.
The Netherlands’ final game is on June 14, and the transfer window opens on June 10. United’s first day of preseason training is scheduled for June 27, although 15 players are on international duty.
“In the end, my gut instinct will be the decisive element,” Timber told De Telegraaf. “The image has to be correct.
“You could go to a large club.” However, if you are not going to play there, it is preferable to remain with Ajax. Ajax is also a large club. We play in the Champions League, and I play alongside the top players in the Netherlands. That is not insignificant.
“Of certainly, I can continue to grow [at Ajax].” That is something I am certain of. I don’t think I’m done with the club. But I can also grow in other clubs.”
“I’m currently concentrating on the forthcoming international matches before going on vacation.” Then I’ll have to think about it again.”
