The Red Devils are in need of attacking reinforcements in the final couple of weeks of the transfer window and could turn their attention to the 29-year-old, who is out of favour at Chelsea.
What is the latest news involving Ziyech?
Earlier this month, the Manchester Evening News reported that Ten Hag is being ‘met with resistance’ by the United hierarchy in his attempts to bring Ziyech to the club.
It’s believed that the Dutch tactician has identified the left-footed attacker as an alternative target to Antony, who is being priced out of a move to Old Trafford by Ajax.
MEN state that United have ‘largely backed Ten Hag’s preference for targets familiar to him but Ziyech has been deemed an exception’, although they don’t stipulate why this is the case.
The reigning Serie A champions have supposedly already made an offer of €25 million (£21million) for the Moroccan which was quickly turned down by the capital club.
What has Romano said about Ziyech?
Ziyech and Ten Hag know each other well from their time at Ajax together, claiming a domestic double in 2018/19 while reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League.
But despite United new boss being an admirer of his former star, Romano has informed GiveMeSport that ‘there are no negotiations taking place between United and Chelsea’.
He said: “Yes, Ziyech is a player who is super-appreciated by Erik ten Hag, but at the moment, there are no negotiations taking place between United and Chelsea. It is not something that is ongoing right now.”
Would Ziyech be a good signing?
Ziyech made a name for himself during his time at the Johan Cruijff ArenA, registering 49 goals and 81 assists in 165 appearances across all competitions for Ajax.
And Ziyech is yet to play a single minute in the current campaign after being left on the bench for the west London outfit’s opening two games of 2022/23.
Yet a reunion with Ten Hag could bring the best out of Ziyech once again, providing United with the attacking impetus that they have so desperately lacked in recent times.
