Manchester United were dealt a blow after transfer target Jurrien Timber hinted he will choose to stay at Ajax this summer.

The defender had been identified by Erik ten Hag as an option to reinforce United’s back four, with Timber able to play at centre-back and right-back.

The Dutchman was open to a move to Old Trafford but wanted reassurances on playing time, particularly ahead of November’s World Cup.

And Dutch reporter Mike Verweij says Timber has found moving to Old Trafford is too much of a risk at this point and he intends to stay at Ajax.

Timber will be going on holiday this week to make a final decision on his future, but he is now heavily leaning towards staying in Amsterdam.

It’s another blow to United’s transfer plans as the Red Devils are yet to sign a deal this summer, while rivals Liverpool and Manchester City have landed Darwin Nunez and Erling Haaland respectively.

Strengthening his defense is low on Erik ten Hag’s priority list, which says more about the urgent need to move players elsewhere than the strength of United’s back four.

United are working on a move for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong but the Spaniards want around £72m for the Dutchman, while United peg him at closer to £52m.

The Red Devils have made an offer to free agent Christian Eriksen but the Dane is set to take a holiday before deciding his future.
