Mourinho looks to add last season’s Europa League finalist to Manchester United’s ranks

Manchester United have often been linked with a lot of big-name stars ever since Jose Mourinho took over as the manager of the club. While we have been successful in bringing in Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez in recent weeks, it seems the former Real Madrid man wants us to sign one of the brightest players in the world, Justin Kluivert.

For those not in the know, Justin is the son of legendary Dutch striker Patrick Kluivert and just like his father, he too plays as an attacker, though he plays out wide as a winger rather than a striker.

A report from the Mirror claims that we are looking to sign the 18-year-old from Ajax as Mourinho was really impressed during last season’s Europa League final which we won by defeating the Dutch side.

Kluivert was instrumental for the side last season and this season, the youngster has 5 goals and a couple of assists from 16 league games for the side. The report claims that we will be paying £10million for the 18-year-old as we look to seal the deal.

Kluivert is one of the best players in Holland but is this the right move for us and for him?

Kluivert Might Not Be Ready For The Move To United

The 18-year-old does have talent but he would be up against the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez. That is a daunting task for any player in the world, let alone a new signing who is moving away from his native country.

Mourinho too does not have the greatest record when it comes to developing players, however, this season has been different as we have provided a number of young players a chance to prove themselves.

Kluivert does need to spend at least another season at Ajax to hone his skills and get better. The last thing he would want to do is move early in his career and stall his progress, something we have seen with Wilfried Zaha.

There is no doubt that we can make this player into one of the best in the world and hopefully when Kluivert is ready for a move, we be the ones to bring him to England.
