Van Basten urges Man Utd to buy Chelsea attacker Ziyech for Ten Hag

Dutch great Marco van Basten has urged new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag to move for Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech.

Ten Hag has already started work at Old Trafford just days after wrapping up the Eredivisie title with Ajax, insisting 'it's time to turn the switch now' and get the Red Devils back on track.

With the Dutchman looking to make his mark at United from the get go, Holland legend Van Basten believes a reunion with one of his former stars could bring success in his first season in Manchester.

Ziyech was a key player under Ten Hag at Ajax – which saw them win the Eredivisie in 2018 – before he was sold to Chelsea for £33million two years later.

Van Basten said on Ziggo Sport: "What comes to my mind now is that I think Ziyech who already plays in England could be a very good footballer at Manchester United for Erik."
