Kudus insists his focus is on Ajax's double amid Man United rumors

The Ajax midfielder has been linked with joining his former coach Erik ten Hag at Manchester United this summer. However, the Ghana international insists he’s fully focused on Ajax's season.

Since making a €9m move from Nordsjælland in 2020, Mohammed Kudus has been brilliant for Ajax, scoring 16 goals across 57 appearances. He's been linked with a move to Manchester United next summer. However, he insists the rumors won't distract him from Ajax's season.

He told

De Telegraaf

: "I am very happy at Ajax at the moment, but I will be even happier if we win the double. Why wouldn't I want to renew? I play and develop well. Now it's about negotiation and valuation. When the time is right, we’ll see how it goes. But that will have to be conducted with my agent. I want to focus entirely on the title race."

Everton came close to sealing a deal for Kudus last summer, however, the deal fell through. Reflecting on the unsuccessful transfer to Everton, Kudus said: "The fact that Ajax blocked a transfer to Everton last summer disappointed me. I thought it was time for a new chapter in my career because I wasn’t playing here.

"But the moment the transfer market closed, my full focus was back on Ajax. The only reason I wanted to leave before that was because of my reserve role. I eliminated that problem myself. Everton are not doing well in the Premier League, Ajax are in the title race and under John Heitinga, I am a permanent fixture. I have a strong faith in God and he has made the positive decision for me not to let the transfer go through."
