Brian Brobbey has ruled out a move away from Ajax in the winter market, amid claims of Manchester United interest.

At the weekend, Sky Deutschland journalist Florian Plettenberg stated the Red Devils haven’t broken contact with the striker after failing to land him last summer. He also said Erik ten Hag has the idea to sign the 21-year-old this month.

Despite the claims, there didn’t feel an awful lot to it and now the player has cooled things further.

Speaking to the Dutch media, relayed by Voetbal Zone, the player was asked about the Manchester United links.

Responding to that, he said: “I also saw it on the news. But I will stay in Amsterdam.”

The Netherlands international played under Ten Hag at Ajax and the manager wanted to bring him to Old Trafford in 2022. This was confirmed by the player himself earlier this month. He’s not ruling out a move to Manchester United after this season.

“Would they be allowed to come back in the summer? Haha, who knows,” Brobbey explained.

Voetbal International have also relayed comments made by the frontman, where he made it clear there’s been no contact with the Manchester United manager.

“No, I have no contact with Erik. We used to text sometimes, but Erik has enough on his mind and I have a new number,” he added.

The Dutchman, who has a deal until 2027, has scored 13 goals and registered four assists from 25 games this season.

Ajax manager John van ‘t Schip has expressed his desire to retain the star, also stating he alone won’t be able to make a decision on Brobbey’s future.

“As far as I’m concerned, he’s not for sale. So yeah, I’ll hang that around his neck,” Van ‘t Schip said, quoted by Voetbal Zone.

“It wouldn’t be helpful if he left now. But who am I to say that? We try to keep the group as strong as possible. Then Brobbey is a very important player in that. I don’t decide whether he leaves, but an insane amount of money will be needed.”
