Former Ajax and AC Milan striker Marco van Basten has urged Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag to snap up Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea this summer for the new rebuild at Manchester United.
Basten believes Ziyech would be an ideal transfer candidate for ten Hag at Old Trafford. Ziyech joined Chelsea from Ajax, where he played under Ten Hag, in 2020 but has since struggled to cement his place in the team.
And Van Basten has told Ten Hag, while on a TV show with the incoming United boss, that a reunion at Old Trafford could be a wise idea for the new Manchester United boss who has arrived at the club this week.
“What comes to my mind now is that I think Ziyech who already plays in England could be a very good footballer at Manchester United for Erik.”
However, in Monday’s press conference ten Hag played down the suggestion that the Red Devils could sign Ziyech following Basten’s comments. There are rumors of Ten Hag signing Kante from Chelsea this summer.
