Daley Blind insists Manchester United target Jurrien Timber is ‘wise enough to make his own decisions’ but hopes Ajax can keep the defender for another season.

New United boss Erik ten Hag is hoping to make his former Ajax player one of his first signings at Old Trafford this summer.

The 20-year-old was a key figure under the Dutchman last season but has hinted he is unsure about a move to Manchester, insisting his “gut feeling will be the deciding factor”.

Recent reports from the Netherlands suggest that Ajax are becoming increasingly confident in keeping Timber as the versatile defender is now said to be leaning towards staying in Amsterdam.

Blind, Timber’s team-mate for club and country, spent four years at Manchester and has been involved in all of the club’s recent cup successes, winning the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League as a United player.

And while he admits Timber will eventually have the final say on whether to leave Ajax this summer, he insists the Dutch giants must do whatever they can to keep him.

“He is wise enough to make his own decisions.” That’s what Blind said at a press conference after the Netherlands’ 4-1 win over Belgium on Friday night.

“I don’t have to explain what a talent and player he is. How important he is to us.

“What he shows from the start is unbelievable. As a teammate, I naturally hope that he will stay for another year. I can’t influence that.

“All I can say is that Ajax have to do their best to keep him.”
