MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly looking into the possibility of raiding Ajax AGAIN with Ghana World Cup star Mohammed Kudus considered a target.
The Red Devils have taken a number of players, and a manager, from the Dutch giants in recent years.
Midfielder Donny van de Beek joined in 2020, boss Erik ten Hag arrived at Old Trafford last summer, and Lisandro Martinez and Antony followed suit before the transfer window slammed shut.
And according to the Daily Star, Ten Hag wants to bring another one of his former Ajax stars to Manchester this January.
Man Utd are in need of another forward following the dramatic departure of Cristiano Ronaldo last November.
The legendary five-time Ballon d’Or winner, 37, had his contract ripped up following a tell-all interview with SunSport columnist and TalkTV main man Piers Morgan.
In that exclusive chat, Ronaldo accused United of betrayal, while also revealing he did not respect manager Ten Hag.
Kudus has largely played as a centre-forward for Ajax this term, and has had great success in front of goal.
The 22-year-old has scored ten goals across all competitions, with one of those coming against Premier League giants Liverpool in the Champions League group stages.
He also had a successful World Cup in front of goal, scoring two in three games before Ghana were eliminated from Group H, which saw Ronaldo’s Portugal and Son Heung-min’s South Korea progress.
United will, however, have to pay big bucks for Kudus, just like they did in the summer for Martinez and Antony.
The Red Devils boosted Ajax’s bank balance by £140million for the pair.
And Kudus is rated at around £40m by the Amsterdam-based club.
He joined the Dutch outfit in 2020 for around £8m from Danish club Nordsjælland.
Kudus could potentially boost Man Utd’s hopes of a top-four finish.
United are currently occupying fourth spot with a two-point cushion and a game in hand over fifth-place Tottenham.
