As per a recent report covered by The Sun, Man Utd are plotting raid to finally sign Timber. Moreover, they are also looking at other Dutch players.

The British news source have mentioned that Ten Hag is prepared to cut down the average age of the squad and wants youngsters from his homeland.

Timber, 21, has been one of the most important players for Ajax. He was a key member of Ten Hag’s side that won the Eredivisie title in the past two years.
