(Photo) Agent of Man United-linked defender arrives in Manchester

Posted by

Manchester United will look to sign a new defender this summer.

Although all efforts, so far, appear to be firmly focused on reaching an agreement for Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong and free agent Christian Eriksen, it is expected that once either, or both, midfielders are sorted, the Red Devils move on to signing a new centre-back.

One name who emerged as a leading candidate to make the move to Old Trafford is Ajax’s Jurrien Timber. Despite the exciting links though, according to a recent report from the Metro, the young Dutch defender rejected the chance to play for former manager Erik ten Hag again.

However, hope that a potential deal can be revived has been offered after one of the player’s representatives appeared to share an update and suggested he has arrived in Manchester for something work-related.

  1. It’s unfortunate to talk bad about my club manutd, our management is failing us terribly. We’re moving from one point to another with no fruitful outcome. Does it mean we only want to sign de jong? We can as well get those easier and attainable deals like Antony as we wait Barcelona stanza. And if de jong deal is getting harder, bring Neves. Am disappointed as a die hard UTD fan.

    1. I’m so disappointed with da way man utd are doin there business they seeme not batherd not even moved ,y don’t u guys do yo job right on tym ,do u pple think otheruclubs are much superior than man ? Y always us y really do u pple subject us fans to pain all tym I’m in Uganda East Africa and disappointed with da way da board does its signing , u do alot of talking but no concrete signings

  2. We need to be serious about the transfer market, otherwise we may not do better than what we did last year.

  3. I don’t understand United board at all . The manager has highlighted that he was to build the mild field around De jong , just buy to strengten the midfield and see other options at different positions ….. Oh Man utd
    Hmmmmm

  4. Am always worried about Manchester United’s transfer business,, it’s usually slow then at the end the players linked with us sign for Madrid or other big clubs,,and this slow motion is costing our performance,,when you look at other clubs they perform better than us since they take everything serious with a good pace,,but my team is always slow,,am still worried 🤒🤒

  5. As usual, ManU. will sign three players on the last day of the window. Players the manager didn’t ask for and players he doesn’t want.

  6. I am really disappointed with the way things are going. Manchester united pls get Antoney,if de jong is not coming get nerves, what is all this, united stop wasting time

  7. I am disillusioned with Manchester United. Their recruitment policy is non existent. They seem to be stumbling along. Neither John Murtough nor ETH have experience in negotiating transfers. ETH doesn’t seem to know who he wants. We are linked with so many players, yet their clubs say they haven’t been contacted by United. Sadly we will once again be scrambling along on transfer deadline day.

  8. man u has a very terrible transfer strategy, since the official commencent of the summer transfer they struggle to sign a single player,we are tired of the mockery from the arch rivals fans for the poor form

  9. Man u(my love) will end up doing panic transfers.i see best alternative to D-jong in an experienced and proven Ruben Nerves.

  10. Man utd is always tooooo slow in the transfer market.whats wrong with Manchester United board.if Manchester United wants to catch up with teams like liverpool,Mancini and Chelsea then they must spend massively.

  11. As a man united deep fan, I think the management at Old Trafford is stingy administratively thats why no concrete top class player gotten from May 2021 to June 2022, Its just frustrating to see what is happening there…. Haba!

  12. Why are the board always giving fans problem like this, there are more better player than de jong now, if you can’t get de jong buy Ruben neves, Buy timber buy Anthony, buy Osihmen, secure the free transfer of Christian Eriksen, with all our players we will get back to our winning ways.

  13. Much as same we need a concrete defensive midfielder like De Jong, we also need a lefted striker like Antony and Greenwood is not forthcoming yet. DOOM!!!
