Ten Hag is eyeing new talent ahead of his Man United rebuild, with the likes of Frenkie de Jong and Jurrien Timber high on his transfer wish-list.

According to reports via The Mirror, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe and Brandon Williams have been made aware that their future lies away from the club.
The Red Devils conceded a whopping 57 goals in the Premier League last season.
The aforementioned defenders are deemed surplus to requirements ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who cost Man United £45 million in 2019, made 26 appearances in all competitions last season, but lost his place in the team following Ralf Rangnick's arrival.
Bailly only featured seven times for Man United last season in an injury-hit campaign.
Jones returned to action last season and played four league games after missing the entire 2020/21 term.
As for Tuanzebe and Williams, they enjoyed loan spells at Aston Villa/Napoli and Norwich City, respectively, last season.
That's five defenders Ten Hag is thought to be looking to offload, with the 52-year-old reportedly eyeing the likes of Lisandro Martinez and the aforementioned Timber.
