AJAX striker Brian Brobbey jokingly told Erik ten Hag to sign him for Manchester United.
The Ajax boss was confirmed as United's next manager this week and he will take over at the end of the season.
One of his urgent priorities will be transfers and it has been rumoured Ten Hag will be bringing in a young forward.
Brobbey hopes it will be him, although immediately after making a plea to Ten Hag he burst out laughing.
After scoring Ajax's late winner against NEC Nijmegen on Saturday, Brobbey said of Ten Hag: "I am very happy for him and he really deserves it after everything he has done for Ajax.
"If only he brings me with him in two years…. no no.. joking joking!"

Brobbey, is currently on loan at Ajax from RB Leipzig, and the 20-year-old has scored five goals in ten games since his switch.
Ten Hag may feel he is not ready for a move to Old Trafford but he could sign his team-mate Antony instead.

Ten Hag is also said to be interested in another player he previously worked with – Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong.
