As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Ajax defender Jurrien Timber claims he had offers to leave the Dutch champions last summer but chose to stay put, but at the end of this season, he’s prepared to consider his transfer options.
Ajax are known as a club that regularly produces top-quality players in every position; the list of the past and current superstars that went through their academy ranks is long indeed. Last summer, Timber was reportedly a target for Manchester United, following the agreement for head coach Erik ten Hag to move to Old Trafford, but as it happened, United signed Lisandro Martinez from Ajax instead, as well as winger Antony.
Interestingly enough, Timber took his first football steps at Feyenoord, but he switched to Ajax at the age of 12. Now 21, he’s made a total of 109 appearances for the club at senior level, scoring five goals. He’s also played 14 matches as a Netherlands international so far. At the end of the season, his contract at Ajax will have two years left to run.
Jurrien Timber on his future: “Transfer? You never know what crosses your path. This summer I will look at my options and make a decision”. 🇳🇱 #Ajax
