‘I can see myself playing at Manchester United’ – Dutch wonderkid talks up future Old Trafford move

Ajax winger Justin Kluivert has admitted he can see himself playing for Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Chelsea in an interview with Helden.

The 18-year-old, who is the son of Dutch icon Patrick, has been in fantastic form this season, scoring and creating 10 goals in 16 Eredivisie starts. Kluivert has been linked with a move away from the Johan Cruijff Arena as a result of his form, and the teenager admitted he’s consider a future move to England.

He said: “If you get a nice offer, you never know. England appeals to me: Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea or Manchester United are nice clubs where I can see myself playing in a few years.”

It’s good news for Manchester United, with the Red Devils having been named as suitors, but the stiff competition from other clubs could drive up his asking price. Kluivert doesn’t appear in a major rush to get out of the Eredivisie, but it’s clear he sees his long-term future elsewhere.

He’s proving his worth, having successfully progressed from the youth teams to the first-team, and the offers could come rolling in over the summer as a result. It’s hard to see Ajax letting Kluivert go without a fight, but the right offer could see him making the move to the Premier League.

Manchester United certainly aren’t short of money. Time will tell if they consider the Netherlands u21 international a worthy addition to the squad.
