Manchester United could consider a move for Ajax midfielder Edson Alvarez as part of Erik ten Hag’s plans to bring in a defensive midfielder this summer.

Erik ten Hag is looking to rebuild United’s midfield, with Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic set to leave Old Trafford this summer, leaving the Dutchman with the options of Scott McTominay, Fred, James Garner and 19-year-old Hannibal Mejbri.

Ten Hag is keen to bring in two midfielders hoping to convince Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong to swap Camp Nou for Old Trafford.

While the former Ajax star would bring some much-needed ruse to the center of the park, ten Hag also want to add some steel.

According to The Athletic, N’Golo Kante is considered with Chelsea to offer the France international at a reduced price this summer.

The 32-year-old has only started in 21 league games this season, with regular fitness increasingly becoming an issue.

Should United consider alternative options, the report names Ajax’s Alvarez as a player ‘highly rated’ by ten Hag.

The 24-year-old Mexican played regularly as a defensive midfielder last season, but can also act as a centre-back.

United have also been closely linked with Monaco sensation Aurelien Tchouameni. The 22-year-old is expected to leave the Ligue 1 side this summer as Liverpool and Real Madrid compete for his signature.

However, Tchouameni is not ‘actively pursued’ by United as the Frenchman will reportedly pick Real Madrid as his next destination.
