Ajax has received competition from none other than Erik ten Hag in the battle for Brian Brobbey. According to the generally well-established BILD, Manchester United is also after the twenty-year-old striker. Brobbey would have even called Ten Hag.
Ajax has been in the process of retrieving Brobbey for some time, but the club is not yet able to meet RB Leipzig‘s asking price. The Germans want to see 25 million euros for the youth international. So now Ten Hag hopes to take advantage of that situation.
It is not clear what Man United is willing to pay for Brobbey, but it is known that the strong attacker has already called Ten Hag. As a result, exciting days are coming for Ajax: just like Steven Bergwijn and Owen Wijndal, the Amsterdammers will have to go to great lengths for Brobbey.
Salient detail: a few months ago, Brobbey jokingly said Ten Hag had to take him to Manchester United in two years. The native Amsterdammer then laughed and dismissed his comment as a joke. However, it could now be that Brobbey and Ten Hag will work together again in the foreseeable future.
It is now also clear that the manager of Manchester United wants to bring many acquaintances to Old Trafford. For example, The Red Devils brought in Tyrell Malacia, while Lisandro Martínez, Antony, Nicolás Tagliafico and now Brobbey are also linked to Ten Hag’s Man United.
Laugh with Brobbey! He is only a little happy for the departing Ten Hag, who is going to Manchester United. Although there is a ‘but’ behind that 😂 pic.twitter.com/zY7jzVng9n
