Man Utd have made contact to sign £100,000 a week playmaker – Report

Hakim Ziyech Morroco and Ajax playmaker

Hakim Ziyech was a superstar at Ajax but things have drastically changed for him since moving to Chelsea Football Club.

Last summer, the Blues were prepared to offload him (The Mail) but in the end, the Moroccan international ended up staying at Stamford Bridge.

The 29-year-old playmaker has been fantastic for the national side at the World Cup. The African team defeated World No. 2, Belgium side, and Ziyech was named the Man of the Match.

Once again, the versatile playmaker is in the lime light. According to Calcio Mercato, AC Milan are interested in signing him and are hoping that he will move to the San Siro.

As far as the competition is concerned, Man Utd are in the first place and have already made contact with Chelsea to hire his services.

The 45-capped international can effectively play on either flank and even as a central attacking midfielder if required.

In the current campaign, he has mainly warmed the bench for the Blues. Before the World Cup, he only managed to start two games for the two-time European Champions and featured for just 270 minutes.

Ziyech, who takes home around £100,000 a week (The Sun) and still has more than two years left on his contract, needs to leave in January to play regular first team football.
