This season, the 20-year-old has emerged as one of Ajax's most valuable players after coming through the ranks under new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.
In order to inquire about Timber's availability, intermediaries are reportedly working on behalf of United to compile a list of potential center-back candidates.
Before talking to any players directly, United usually has a third party interview them. In order to get a sense of whether or not the player is interested in a transfer, the club uses this method.
Timber was pressed over the weekend about Ten Hag's future as well as his own, and he made it obvious that he plans to continue his education at Ajax.
United would acquire a defender who can also play as a defensive midfielder if they signed Timber.. Timber knows how Ten Hag's system works, so he'll be a good fit for the team.
According to ESPN, Pau Torres, a Villarreal defender, is also on the short list for Ten Hag's consideration. Also, Manchester City has been rumored to be interested in signing him recently.
Who do you think Manchester United should sign as a centre-back this summer?
