Man United: Ten Hag's Perfect Opportunity To Unleash £59M Star, £27M Maguire Upgrade Eyed

Here is the latest from Old Trafford.

Ten Hag had his sights set on Jurrien Timber, an up-and-coming Ajax defender, before even considering bringing Lisandro Martinez to Old Trafford. However, the Dutch international chose to remain at Ajax in order to compete for a place in Van Gaal's World Cup squad. Martinez was signed, and what a signing he was. So, is Timber's transfer worth reconsidering? As you consider whether United should pursue the Ajax player again, Football Talk reports that United is still interested in signing the 21-year-old.

According to the publication, Ten Hag does not believe Maguire is capable of delivering what he expects from his defence and may move him on and replace him with Timber.

Casemiro has been at Manchester United for over a month and has yet to start a Premier League game. McTominay's resurgence has made it hard for Ten Hag to bench him, relegating Casemiro to the bench, but is it time for Ten Hag to make the difficult decision of benching McTominay? Manchester United legend Luke Chadwick has hinted that Ten Hag may finally give Casemiro his first Manchester United start in place of McTominay in the Manchester Derby.

"I think the biggest decision Ten Hag has to make is with Casemiro," Chadwick said. "This is a massive game, but it’s the kind of big game he’s got a lot of experience playing in." McTominay or Casemiro, who do you think starts?
