Man Utd unfazed by Ajax price tag for Timber

Manchester United are unfazed by Ajax’s asking price for defender Jurrien Timber, The Mirror reports.

The Red Devils are expected to sign a new central defender this summer, and Timber has been identified as the prime target.

The club have already entered talks with Ajax for the 20-year-old, and they seem to be unfazed by the £36 million price tag.

Erik ten Hag has urged the hierarchy to land the Dutchman, and it could be a matter of time before a formal proposal is made.

Meanwhile, Timber’s arrival could coincide with multiple exits. Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe are expected to be sold by United.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has also been tipped to head for the exit door, but surprise reports claim that Phil Jones could stay put.

Jones had a couple of good performances after his injury comeback this year, and United are not against the idea of keeping him.

Aside from a central defender, United have been tipped to sign a new defensive midfielder, striker and a right-back.
