Would deserve its own chapter in the rise and fall of Manchester United.

Definitely buy him, he wasn't good enough to get a look in at Leipzig, but he almost managed to play 90 minutes in the Eredivisie on loan at Ajax.

Didn't Ajax just re-sign him? And surely we haven't got that desperate. The mere suggestion he's a United level striker is laughable.

They haven’t yet - Leipzig want a lot for him after Ajax sold him to Leipzig for a big fee. Edit: actually a free transfer

Ten Hag having to resort to bringing in only players he knows because Murtough and our scouts are so crap at their jobs and the Glazers are so stingy. I mean this is probably bullshit, but there's already enough evidence to suggest that the club is still in an awful state and nothing has improved yet.

I'd wait for an English source to report this before reading too far into it. As @Giggsyking has said, this could very much just be RB Leipzig using our name to get more out of Ajax.

Since the Caf scoffs at Patrick Schick's fee while the club missing out on CF after another CF, there's not many alternatives for at least utility striker. :cool:

If I had to make up a name on the stop, I'll come up with something like "Brian Brobbery".

Doesn't suprise me. Ten Hag always played with a strong striker who are capable of keeping the ball. Tadic, Haller, Brobbey. This is crucial in his style of play.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy Ajax at this point? Oh nevermind, he doesn't play for Ajax anymore

Ten Hag is know to bringing players with him who he knows/worked with. He dit that at Ajax and at Utrecht. So it could really be true.

Won't believe this is true until I see a highlights video explaining why we want him.

Probably not true but he is only 20 and his record for the Dutch at youth team levels is good.

Another name we’re linked with that ten Hag knows or has worked with! Not every single player from the Dutch league will be successful here. Our scouting team are really bad, don’t target anyone other then players who each of our managers have worked with.

Failed in Germany... Martial would be a better option. Atleast Martial has shown he can be good in the premier league.

I've watched him since his youth days at Ajax and with the Dutch youth teams and he'd be a development talent with low risk and potential high reward.

I get ten Hag only wants players he's familiar with, but are the Glazers and their cronies so incompetent that they're just going to blindly follow the whims of the manager and sign only Ajax affiliated players? fecks sakes, if this is true I think my optimism for the next season is completely dead now. Shambolic scouting and recruitment.
