Manchester United have been linked with a move for Ajax midfielder Jurrien Timber, and the Dutchman has dropped a huge hint that he could be on the move this summer.
The 21-year-old has been a key player for Ajax this season, making 33 appearances in all competitions and scoring four goals. He has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, with reports suggesting that United are keen to add him to their midfield options.
Now, Timber has dropped a huge hint that he could be on the move this summer, with the Dutchman admitting that he is open to a new challenge.
Speaking to Dutch outlet Voetbal International, Timber said: “I am open to a new challenge. I am 21 years old and I want to develop myself. I want to play in a different league and experience a different culture.”
The midfielder also revealed that he has been in contact with United, saying: “I have had contact with Manchester United. I cannot say much more about it.”
Timber is a highly-rated young midfielder, and his potential move to United would be a major coup for the club. He is a versatile player, capable of playing in a variety of midfield roles, and his ability to break up play and start attacks would be a major asset for United.
The Dutchman is also a good passer of the ball, and his ability to pick out a pass and create chances for his teammates would be a major asset for United.
It remains to be seen if United will make a move for Timber this summer, but the Dutchman’s comments suggest that he could be on the move. If United do make a move for him, it could be a major coup for the club.
