Kluivert advised to reject Premier League transfer

Ajax teenager Justin Kluivert has been advised to reject a potential move to the Premier League, by his own father!

The 18-year-old has been heavily linked with a summer transfer, with Manchester United thought be in advanced discussions with the youngster.

However, his father, the legendary Ajax, Barcelona and Netherlands striker Patrick Kluivert, has advised his son to reject the Premier League and move to the Spanish La Liga instead. He said:

“He must keep his feet on the ground. I’ve told him that he is still 18 and should be relaxed and for sure stay another year or more at Ajax.

“When you go to another country, another competition, you must be strong mentally and physically, you should not leave too early.

“Then whatever will arrive will arrive. It is difficult to say no to Barca, but also to other big teams, the most important is to choose a team which suits his style of team, not the team which pays more money.

“I see my son playing more in the Spanish league than in the Premier League, but it will be his choice.”

The youngster recently admitted that he sees himself playing in England, name dropping Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs and Man Utd, while also saying he couldn’t reject a move to Real Madrid, despite his fathers links to Barcelona.
