MANCHESTER UNITED target Jurrien Timber has reportedly hinted he will stay at Ajax. Timber, 21, worked with Erik ten Hag at Ajax to win a Eredivisie title last season.

It is another transfer blow for new boss Erik ten Hag as he considered Timber, 21, as a key option this summer.

Ten Hag managed Timber at Ajax and won a Eredivisie together

The centre-back reportedly says it’s “too much of a risk” to move to Man Utd

The pair worked together at Ajax to win a Eredivisie title last season.

But now reports from Dutch journalist Mike Verweij claim that the defender has decided it is too risky to move to Old Trafford.

With the World Cup in November, moving the the Premier League would be too much of a shake-up for him “at this time”.

The Netherlands international will go on holiday this week to make a final decision on his future but is “leaning heavily” towards staying put.

Timber’s representatives fuelled speculation that a transfer was on the horizon last month when they posted a clip at an airport with the caption “deal closing time”.

It has even been said that United are “on the brink” of landing the youngster.

The Dutch gaffer is desperate to bring in a new centre-back to partner Raphael Varane with Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof struggling.

Timber can play as a central defender and right-back, which would supply even more ammunition for Ten Hag.

It is a further disappointment for United supporters, after Gary Neville admitted that failure to make a signing this window is “worrying” him.

The Red Devils released six first-team players this summer but are yet to confirm a new arrival under Ten Hag.

Additions are needed, and while the club remain locked in talks over a move for Frenkie de Jong, the lack of business is becoming a concern for Neville.

The club legend wrote on his Twitter account: “I know early in the window but it’s worrying that United are struggling to get business done.

“The others seem set and ready yet United can’t get moving. Erik ten Hag needs his group together asap to mould them.

“Bringing them in late will only make it harder for him! Fingers crossed it happens soon!”
