Manchester United report: Dutch defender confirms, ‘My transfer is getting closer’

Manchester United are closing in on yet another Ajax star following an admission that a transfer is getting “closer”. 

Erik ten Hag moved from de Godenzonen to the Red Devils last summer and has wasted no time in raiding former Ajax stars for his Manchester United revolution. Lisandro Martinez reportedly chose United over Arsenal, while Antony was signed for a mammoth fee later in the window. 

Former Ajax star Frenkie de Jong was also a target, while Christian Eriksen played for the Amsterdam outfit in his youth. Ten Hag has been linked with several other stars at the Johan Cruyff Arena, with one openly admitting that he looks like leaving the Eredivisie in the coming weeks.
