According to De Telegraaf, Ajax have made contact with Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah over a return to Amsterdam.

Matthijs de Ligt is set to depart Ajax this summer and the club are already preparing for life without their captain. De Telegraaf is reporting that contact has been made with Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s agent.

The versatile defender is currently on loan at Fulham, but has struggled for playing time in London and when he returns to Manchester United in the summer he is unlikely to be part of their plans.

Ajax hope to bring the 21-year-old, who spent eight years in the Ajax academy, back to Amsterdam. A potential transfer fee is not known.

De Telegraaf also add that the Dutch international turned down the chance to leave Fulham to join Lazio on loan in January.
