According to Romano, the Red Devils have held internal discussions again over a move for Ajax centre-back Jurrien Timber, while Pau Torres of Villarreal is another name who has come up in talks.
Yesterday, The United Stand suggested the signing of Timber was edging closer, and while Romano hasn’t gone quite that far with his analysis of the situation, he expects the next steps on this potential signing will be taken soon.
See his tweet below for the latest details on this saga…
Manchester United discussed Jurrien Timber again internally in the last 48h. Timber’s name [alongside Pau Torres] was also mentioned in the first meeting between Man Utd and ten Hag, days ago. ??? #MUFC
More to follow – as Man United will decide next steps on centre backs soon.

Timber looks an outstanding young player who could be an important addition at Old Trafford this summer after such a miserable 2021/22 campaign.
The Dutch starlet could already be a major upgrade on the out-of-form Harry Maguire, so MUFC fans will surely be hoping progress can be made on this deal as soon as possible.
