But in case a deal with Timber cannot be struck, United have held talks wit 22-year-old Braga defender Carmo, according to the Daily Mail.

Carmo was a transfer target for Liverpool last season and nearly made the switch to Anfield but the deal collapsed.

The centre-back helped Braga to a fourth-placed finish, qualifying for next season’s Europa League.

His fine form has earned Carmo a call-up to Portugal’s squad for their June Nations League fixtures.

The Red Devils are also keeping tabs on Villarreal defender Pau Torres.

Spaniard Torres starred in Villarreal’s Europa League success in 2021, where they beat United on penalties.

The Yellow Submarine’s also made the Champions League semis this term with Torres ever-present at the back.

Ten Hag’s top target Timber says playing time will decide his future.

The Dutch international said: “In the end, my gut feeling will be the deciding factor.

“You can go to a big club. But if you’re not going to play there it’s better to stay with Ajax. And Ajax is also a big club.

“We play football in the Champions League and I play there together with the best players in the Netherlands. That is not nothing.

“Of course, I can develop further [at Ajax]. I am 100 per cent sure of that.

“I don’t feel like I’m done at the club. But I can also develop at other clubs.

“I am now focusing on the upcoming international matches and then go on holiday. Then I’ll have to think about it some more.”
