Ten Hag wants new Man Utd midfield built on two ex-Ajax stars

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag wants to build his new midfield on two former Ajax players.

Dutch reporter Marcel van der Kraan states Frenkie de Jong and Christian Eriksen are the two main targets for the new United boss.

The Red Devils have been linked to both midfielders throughout the window and both are seen as perfect for ten Hag's style of football.

Eriksen arrived at Brentford in January and made an instant impact for the London club. He scored one goal and four assists in his 11 games, and was widely praised for his contribution to Thomas Frank's side.

He is available for a free after his short-term contract expired but new reports have suggested the Dane wants to stay in London, and could possibly even return to Tottenham.
