“Been told that the negotiations between Ajax and Manchester United are ongoing. Talks are still taking place,” he said.

Manchester United are also expected to reopen talks to sign Frenkie de Dong from Barcelona and Cody Gakpo from PSV.
The Red Devils are expected to announce the signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid on Sunday.
The defensive midfielder and his agents arrived in Manchester on Saturday where he underwent his medicals.
