Manchester United Offers £45m For Ajax Winger After Zaha Frustration

Published

Manchester United are set to make a bid for Ajax winger, David Neres, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to ramp up his squad overhaul at Old Trafford.

United’s summer spending could now rocket past £150million if they are successful in signing the Ajax winger.

On Friday, it was reported that the club had agreed terms with Leicester City to sign defender Harry Maguire for £80m, the second time they have spent £50m or more on a player in this window alone.

United have now offered £45m for Neres, who scored 12 goals for Ajax last season in 50 games.

Neres was impressive as Ajax stormed their way to a domestic treble as well as the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Ajax have already seen Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong leave this summer, while it is believed that Donny van de Beek will leave for Real Madrid.

And they will apparently only sell Neres for £64m this summer, in an attempt to price out any potential bidders.

The Brazilian is under contract at the Dutch side until 2022, and it had been suggested that he would be willing to sign a new deal at the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

United have had a mixed window so far, having spent the majority of the window negotiating with Leicester for Maguire.

And now it appears that they are in for a busy end to the window, with the potential of four new incomings before the end of the window.
