They will have to pay more than € 100 million for them.

Manchester United continues to hunt for Ajax players. Erik ten Hag has already signed Anthony (€95m) and Lisandro Martinez (€57.37m) from the Dutch club and has now set his sights on Jurriën Timber, Devyne Rensch, and Kenneth Taylor. Manchester United already has three players from the Netherlands - Tyrell Malacia, Donny van de Beek and Wout Weghorst.

Why does Erik ten Hag need three more Ajax players?

According to The Sun, the Manchester United manager has given European scouts a list of more than 12 young Dutch players to keep an eye on. Ten Hag wants to rejuvenate the squad with compatriots. One of the candidates is Jurriën Timber. Manchester United wanted to sign this 21-year-old central defender back in the summer, and now he is at the top of the list for the 52-year-old coach. Timber is in his third season with Ajax, starts, and is about to cross the 100 cap mark. The defender, whose transfer value is estimated by Transfermarkt at € 45 million, made his debut for the Netherlands national team ahead of Euro 2020. At the tournament, he spent three matches, and at the 2022 World Cup, he has grown to the role of one of the leaders.

Devyne Rensch plays at right-back. He is 19 years old. This is also his third season with Ajax and his first as a starter. The guy made his debut for the national team in September 2021 in the selection of the 2022 World Cup and scored an assist in a meeting with Turkey. This game is, so far, the only one for him for the national team. Like that Timber, his contract runs until the summer of 2025. As for Kenneth Taylor, it will be challenging for Manchester United to sign him. The 20-year-old midfielder is getting better every season. He has 5+3 goals+pass in 14 Eredivisie games and a contract until the summer of 2027.

Here's how a source close to the situation comments on ten Hag's interest in compatriots: "Eric firmly believes that United can seize the initiative in the fight for these players, and scouts were told that the club needs to intensify work both in Holland and in Germany."

I wonder how much Manchester United will end up shelling out if they manage to sign all three. It seems that the amount will exceed € 100 million. Jurien Timber is the most critical asset. In the summer, interest in him will not only be at Manchester United.
