Ten Hag wants Manchester United to sign Ajax’s Brian Brobbey this January

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag reportedly wants to sign Brian Brobbey in the January transfer window

The Dutch tactician knows the player well, having worked with him during his managerial stint in Amsterdam. 

He was reportedly keen to reunite with the 21-year-old last summer but the move didn’t materialise. 

Florian Plettenberg reports that Ten Hag is still interested in the centre-forward and wants United to sign him in January. 

The 21-year-old has enjoyed an excellent campaign, bagging 13 goals and four assists in 25 matches across all competitions. 

The Netherlands international could be a good replacement for Anthony Martial who is expected to leave the club at the end of this campaign. 

However, a permanent transfer for Brobbey this month looks very unlikely. 

The Eredivisie giants are expected to demand a huge fee for Brobbey, who is under contract until 2027. United are not in a position to meet their high valuation. 

Lisandro Martinez left Ajax to join United last summer, and he proved to be an excellent signing. 

The same thing cannot be said about Antony, who has completely failed to meet expectations at Old Trafford.
