Report claims Ten Hag has identified Milan midfielder as ‘top Man Utd target’

By Ben Dixon -

Following his impressive acclimatisation to Serie A, a report has suggested that one of AC Milan’s summer mercato recruits is already being targeted by Manchester United. 

In his first season with Milan, Tijjani Reijnders has excelled after his move to Serie A, and this is something which has been picked up on by Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, as reported by FootballTransfers.

United manager Erik Ten Hag has reportedly made the Dutch midfielder his ‘top target’ for midfield due to his current options: Sofyan Amrabat, Casemiro, and Christian Eriksen are either nearing the end of their careers at the top level, or their futures are uncertain.

Throughout his career, the 25-year-old has played nearly everywhere across the midfield. As a defensive midfielder, a central midfielder, or an attacking midfielder, he has impressed, and his versatility is highly respected by the English giants, as they look to rebuild their midfield.

Alternatively, the Parisian side are also eyeing a move for the Dutchman, as they too will look to overhaul their squad, financed by the departing Kylian Mbappe.

The Rossoneri will not roll over to allow the midfielder to move on so soon after joining the club, though. It is reported that it will take at least €60million to pry him away from Italy, but given the financial capacities available to Ten Hag and PSG – if they make their interest concrete – they will have no issues matching this fee.

    1. “FootballTransfers can reveal”
      “sources suggest”
      “we are told”

      From the original article. Probably written by an AI.

    2. You can say almost the same thing and leave out the last part. Forget the ex employee for a while and then judge what was bought. He’s not poor, not sure he’s a waste of money though. He isn’t great, just good or above average. Recently cost us the Monza loss because he was badly out of position. Can pass really well, but can’t shoot. Poor defensively. So-so really 🤷‍♂️. Might be better suited to a different system

  1. I’m a big Reijnders fan. I like him on the ball and his verticality when he plays. There aren’t aspects to his game that need to improve like shots on target and quicker ball release on the final pass. But so far he’s been great.

  2. I know this is a rumor, because Reijnders performance this season has been so poor across the board, no top club will move for him unless he’s literally free (end of contract)

    But if there is any club with any compassion left in the world. Please, please, take him. For the love of God, please take him.

    I will drive him and his entire family. Done and done.

      1. Bennacer is talented but he needs to be around other talented players in midfield like when we won the title with Bennacer, Tonali and Kessie.

        Musah is not talented enough. End of story. He’s OK as a bench player but not as a starter.

        Adli, not good enough right now but has promise for the future (unlike Musah).

        Compare our midifeld vs other teams in CL. It’s an absolute joke. A horror show. That’s why we can’t score and can’t defend, our midfield is completely useless. Sorry it hurts, but it’s true.

      1. Yes, because his REAL LIFE STATISTICS certainly show this.

        I’ll tell you what. Can you send me a highlight reel of Reijnders accomplishments at AC Milan? I want to see these awesome performances he has been putting in. Surely, there is a video clip somewhere. Right? Right?

        Failed initially at AM and was moved back into midfield where he still is invisible.

        Can’t shoot. Can’t pass. Can’t play defense. Can’t win the ball back.

        I don’t get it, what is the point of him? If he moves so great off the ball, where are the assists? Where are the highlights? Where is anything?

  3. I’m selling him for 40 mil, with a new manager like Thiago Motta it is going to be a 4-2-3-1 with Bennacer and maybe Ricci or Wieffer as the double pivot, and RLC/Ferguson as a CAM, so Reijnders doesnt really have a position in that team. That’s why I sell him
