Ajax star opens door to Man Utd or Liverpool transfer as club set asking price

Jurrien Timber has opened the door to a move to Manchester United or Liverpool this summer after Ajax set their asking price for the Netherlands defender.

Over the past three years, Timber has become one of Ajax's most crucial players and a stalwart for his country's team.

Man United and Liverpool, two rivals in the Premier League, are keeping an eye on the 21-year-old due to his performance in the Eredivisie ahead of the summer transfer window.

Jurgen Klopp, who wants to enhance his defensive options this summer, is expected to compete with United manager Erik ten Hag for Timber, who worked with him at Ajax.

Timber said that "there is a chance" he would quit Ajax in the near future and listed some of the aspects that will affect his choice.

For me, things are the same as they were last season, Timber told Ziggo Sport.

"It has to fit when I say I'm leaving," I said. Playing style and playing time are crucial factors. Competition for awards is crucial. My preferred nation to play in? I'm afraid to say.
