He said: "Bayern inquired about him but it is said the 20 year-old could join Ten Hag at Manchester United.

"Talks with his management have taken place and Manchester United is seriously interested."

Ten Hag has joined United on a three-year deal with the option of one more and will take the reigns for next season.

And after leading Ajax to a third Eredivisie title in as many years he was asked about Timber's future.

He told De Telegraaf: "I think all top clubs in Europe have Timber in their sights.

"But I think that currently applies to a lot of Ajax players."
