According to The Mirror, Timber could be the Dutch manager’s first signing in the summer as the 20-year-old became one of ten Hag’s most trusted players at Ajax.

Timber who made 43 appearances in Ajax’s 2021/22 title-winning campaign is a versatile player that can perform well at centre-back and also at right-back.

He is a young player with a lot of potential. Therefore, he could grow into a household name under ten Hag at Manchester United. However, there will be significant competition for his signature this summer.

When asked previously about taking Timber with him to United, ten Hag said: ‘I think all the top clubs in Europe have Timber in their sights. But I think that applies to a lot of Ajax players at the moment.’

Potentially joining him at Old Trafford is Argentine centre half Martinez with the Telegraph reporting ten Hag is eyeing up a swoop for the 24-year-old, who is rated at around £25million.

The six-cap international is not the tallest at only 5’9″ but has been the cornerstone of Ajax’s success in the last three seasons, and is quick, capable of starting attacks with incisive passes and a good one-on-one defender.

Additionally, ten Hag may be forced to replace Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Dean Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Alex Telles, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford as they have all been linked with moves away.

However, ten Hag has made it clear that he plans to make Rashford an integral part of the team’s revival regardless of the 24-year-old’s links with alternative clubs.
