Erik ten Hag and John Murtough of Manchester United have agreed to sign two defenders this summer.
This comes after Manchester United was unable to sign Ajax defender Jurrien Timber.
Timber was anticipated to join Manchester United until recently, but he is now expected to stay at Ajax due to concerns that joining the Red Devils will jeopardize his chances of making his country’s World Cup squad in Qatar later this year.
Manchester United want to add a new center-back to their roster this summer in preparation for the upcoming season.
While Ten Hag is pleased with Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, and Raphael Varane, the club is willing to sell Eric Bailly, Axel Tuanzebe, and Phil Jones.
Timber had been expected to join Manchester United, but the Dutch international is hesitant to go as the World Cup in Qatar approaches.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Ten Hag and Murtough agree on two prospective replacements.
Meanwhile, Manchester United has been linked with a deal for Villarreal’s Pau Torres.
