Man Utd transfer news: Fourth Ajax star targeted as Tyrell Malacia alternative for Ten Hag | Football | Sport


Manchester United have shown interest in signing Nicolas Tagliafico this summer along with Antony, Lisandro Martinez and Jurrien Timber, in keeping with reports. While the Red Devils are yet to make progress available in the market, the Old Trafford hierarchy are understood to have loads of plates spinning as a part of their rebuild under Erik ten Hag.

When a deal was struck with the Dutchman, Ajax were willing to swerve the concept of putting a ban on him signing any of his former players.

It’s handed the 52-year-old the prospect to raid his Eredivisie-winning squad and it appears there’s a latest option in play.

Based on The Mail, United hold an interest in signing the Argentine left-back ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The 29-year-old is out of contract in 2023, meaning Ajax are willing to contemplate offers for his services this summer.

Martinez is moreover of firm interest to Arsenal, who’ve already seen a proposal value £25m rejected by Ajax.

It has been reported that United met with intermediaries working on behalf of the centre-back, earlier this week.

Meanwhile, background discussions have been held for Antony and he’s seemingly open to reuniting with Ten Hag.

Problematically for United though, Ajax are demanding upwards of £60m so as to conform to a sale.

The player’s representatives could hold the important thing to any deal in the event that they are willing to pressure Ajax right into a sale.

Antony has proved an actual hit in Holland following his 2020 move from Sao Paulo and United are keen on adding him to the attacking options.

United previously failed with a move for defender Timber, who has seemingly opted to stay at Ajax for not less than one other season.

Former United boss Louis van Goal has advised the centre-back to remain in Amsterdam ahead of November’s World Cup in Qatar, as he’s guaranteed regular playing time.
