Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano drops Jurrien Timber update

Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano drops Jurrien Timber update -Manchester United News

Manchester United’s interest in Ajax defender Jurrien Timber ‘is concrete and serious’, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Nunez move close?

Erik ten Hag is yet to make his first signing as Red Devils manager, although he may not have to wait much longer.

Journalist Dean Jones has recently stated that United are ‘extremely close’ to signing Benfica striker Darwin Nunez. The transfer insider described a potential move for the Uruguayan as ‘brilliant’, and it looks as if Old Trafford chiefs and Ten Hag are also keen on Timber.

The Latest: Romano’s update on Timber

Romano took to Twitter on Monday lunchtime to provide an update on Timber. The transfer expert revealed that United’s interest in the 20-year-old ‘is concrete and serious’ with a deal at the early stages.

The Dutchman’s name has been discussed internally with Ten Hag, even though Ajax have offered the defender a new contract.

Romano also said in a piece for The Guardian that United have made contact over a potential move for the £43m-valued defender.

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

Ten Hag knows all about Timber’s qualities and made him a regular for Ajax last season as the Amsterdam giants conceded just 19 times in 34 league games.

He can also play as a right-back if required, something which could prove handy if the Red Devils manage to offload Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Pau Torres is another defensive target who United have discussed, according to Romano, so a defensive overhaul seems to be a priority for Ten Hag, and Timber could be the first defender to arrive at Old Trafford under the new regime.
