Development takes precedence over euros at Ajax, which cannot be missed in the heart of Amsterdam

AMSTERDAM – The almost entire English top – with Manchester United as the most persistent club – killed for his signature, but Jurriën Timber proved adamant. The central defender of Ajax and Orange has carefully mapped out the route to a European top club in his head, is only 21 years old and prefers his development to euros. Instead of risking the crossing across the Channel, the Utrechter’s contract with the national champion was broken open, upgraded and extended until the summer of 2025. That was not without a struggle. The club has richly rewarded him for his excellent development.
