The 20-year-old is a target for Erik ten Hag, with the United manager helping the defender win Ajax’s young player of the year last season.
Timber was keen to follow Ten Hag to Old Trafford, but a recent warning from Dutch boss Louis van Gaal that any player not playing for his club side could be left out of the World Cup squad seemed to worry the centre-back.
United had therefore moved on to other targets such as Villarreal’s Pau Torres, but his agent Revien Kanhai has hinted a deal could still be in the offing.
Taking to Instagram with a photo of Manchester city centre, Kanhai said: “Love traveling for work”.
Should Timber receive promises about playing time, the Dutchman could change his mind about a move to Old Trafford.
But with United ready to move to Torres or Ajax team-mate Lisandro Martinez, Timber could feel it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to move to the theater of dreams.
United are yet to sign a deal this summer as the club are currently focused on signing Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
