Man Utd transfer target seen attending FA Cup final against Man City

Manchester United transfer target Jurrien Timber was spotted at Wembley to watch the FA Cup final against Manchester City.

After his arrival from Ajax, ten Hag attempted to bring the defender to Old Trafford in last summer’s transfer window.

The 21-year-old remained in the Eredivisie for another campaign but is still on United’s radar with Liverpool and Napoli also credited with interest.

With the season over, Timber traveled to London for Saturday’s final, spotted making his way down Wembley Way ahead of the kick-off.

Ajax turned down a number of offers for Timber with United signing Lisandro Martinez who has been superb in his first season in Manchester.

Timber plans to assess his options in the coming weeks having spoken to Ajax football director Sven Mislintat.

‘I’m now in the same situation as last year. ‘I don’t know yet if I’m going to make that step now. I’m glad I’m at Ajax. You can always show yourself here.

‘It’s not like I’m gone if we don’t play the Champions League. Ajax remains Ajax.

‘What I look at: if I leave, is the whole picture correct? I also know how important the coach and the guys around you are.

‘I assume that next season will be better. With or without me, Ajax usually gets it back on track.

‘I understand the guys who think: if a top club comes, I will go. It is also difficult to say no. Only, I don’t have that at all.

‘In my case everything is still open. Quite a lot is happening in the background in terms of interest. I will soon see what the concrete options are.’
