New Man United manager Ten Hag keen on bringing in Ajax striker

 Now that Erik ten Hag has been confirmed as Manchester United's new manager, speculations have started as to who will be in and who will be out once the Dutch tactician takes over this summer.

One player that has been linked with a move to Old Trafford is none other than Sebastien Haller. The 27-year-old certainly has been a standout player this season for Ajax both in the Eredivisie and in the Champions League. In the latter competition, Haller, who was born in France, but plays his international football for the Ivory Coast, set a new record by becoming the first player to score in seven consecutive matches in the Champions League. 

And that's not all. On his debut, Haller scored four of Ajax's five goals as the Dutch powerhouse cruised to a 5-1 win over Sporting CP, making him the first player to score four on his debut since Marco van Basten did so for AC Milan back in 1992.

Although Ajax eventually were unfortunately eliminated from the Champions League in the round of 16 after narrowly losing 3-2 to Benfica, Haller's goal-scoring exploits have garnered quite a bit of attention from clubs around Europe, and now there are reports that his manager could decided to bring him to Old Trafford once he moves over to England at the end of the season.

Haller will also be determined to prove himself after a very disappointing spell at West Ham, which saw him score just 14 times in 54 apps across all comps. 

Considering that the Red Devils have been really struggling lately, Haller, who is priced at approximately $44 million (£35 million), could be an affordable option to boost their attack ahead of next season; however, Manchester United have also been linked with Benfica's Darwin Nunez, so it will be very interesting to see if either of these players end up featuring for the English giants next season.
