Man United and Juventus in £5m battle to land highly rated Dutch star

Tete

Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are no strange to transfer rumours, though for once the lot who occupy it are left without immediate answers!

They’re frantically trying to find out all about Ajax defender Kenny Tete, following reports linking the Red Devils with the 20-year old in the Daily Mirror.

The highly rated versatile defender is thought to have rejected a new deal in the Dutch capital, meaning he has just one season left to run there.

As a result, both United and Juventus are believed to eyeing a potential £5m deal over the summer as they bid to prize one of the most promising Dutch players away from the Amsterdam ArenA.

Equally adept at centre-halve as he is at right-back, he was afforded his debut in national side by manager Danny Blind back in October following his strong performances domestically.

United have struggled to plug gaps in their backline after an injury crisis this season. Michael Carrick was forced into an unfamiliar role in the heart of defence, highlighting the need for reinforcements.
