SHOCKING NEWS: “I have up my mind to join them, they might be in crisis right now but they still remain one of the best team in the world and being part of their history would be a pleasure” . Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, is reportedly looking to add another Ajax player during the January transfer window, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, intends to add a another Ajax player during the January transfer window.


Reports from Footballwave indicate that after securing Lisandro Martinez and Antony from his previous club, the Dutch manager is now eager to replicate this success with striker Brian Brobbey. Ten Hag had prior experience working with Brobbey at their Eredivisie club, but the striker’s move to RB Leipzig in the summer of 2021 faced challenges in adapting to the Bundesliga. Subsequently, Brobbey returned to Ajax on loan, a move later made permanent for €16 million.

Despite initial setbacks in Germany, Brobbey has reignited his goal-scoring prowess, amassing 14 goals across all competitions last season and an additional 11 in the current campaign. At only 21 years old, there is optimism that Ten Hag could mold him into a player of Manchester United’s caliber.

However, concerns persist regarding Brobbey’s disappointing spell in Germany, prompting questions about his compatibility with Dutch versus English football. Arsenal has also emerged as a potential suitor for the promising young forward.

In a separate development, Ajax goalkeeper Charlie Setford has expressed his desire to play for Manchester United in the future. Born in Holland and a member of Ajax since the age of seven, Setford holds dual nationality, including English citizenship through his father. With 31 appearances for Ajax’s reserve team, Jong Ajax, Setford has faced challenges, conceding 57 goals while maintaining only six clean sheets.

Setford voiced his admiration for English football, declaring it the premier competition globally. If given the choice between Liverpool and Manchester United, Setford leans towards the latter, citing the allure of the “theatre of dreams,” akin to the legendary Edwin van der Sar’s association with the club. Van der Sar, having recently departed from his role as Ajax’s chief executive, shares a close connection with Setford, further fueling the goalkeeper’s aspiration to make a potential move to Manchester United.
