Ten Hag and Man Utd chiefs at odds over bid for Chelsea midfielder Ziyech

Erikten Hag and Manchester United chiefs are at odds over a pursuit of Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech.

Ten Hag wishes to sign his former Ajax star this month.

However, the Manchester Evening News says the manager is being met with resistance from the United top brass.

Ten Hag coached Ziyech, 29, at Ajax and has identified the Morocco attacker as an alternative left-footed attacker to Antony, who has been priced out of a move by Ajax as he is valued at €80million.

Ziyech is under contract at Chelsea until 2025 and was an unused substitute in their opening weekend win at Everton.

United have largely backed Ten Hag's preference for targets familiar to him but Ziyech has been deemed an exception.
