The winger has a contract with Chelsea until 2025 and is linked with a move away. Erik ten Hag has good relations with the player after their time together at Ajax and believes him to be a vital part in his rebuilding of Manchester United.
The Premier League side have agreed with the Dutch manager’s transfer targets but have reservations over the Morocco international. The winger is considered an alternative to Ajax star Antony, who has been ruled out due to his price tag of €80 million.
Chelsea signed Hakim Ziyech for €40 million in 2020 from Ajax but the winger has failed to make the desired impact at Stamford Bridge. This has resulted in him losing his place in the starting XI and is tipped to move away in the summer.
Manchester United have struggled to attract any top player this transfer window as multiple players have decided against signing for the club. They are in talks with Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot and have agreed a deal with the Italian club but are yet to reach an agreement with the Frenchman.
