Kluivert talks up potential Premier League transfer

Justin Kluivert has admitted that he wants to make a move to the Premier League after reports linking him to Manchester United.

The youngster, who is the son of former Ajax, Barcelona and Netherlands legend Patrick Kluivert, is one of the hottest prospects in Dutch football.

Reports after last season Europa League final suggested that Jose Mourinho had ‘promised’ him a move to Manchester United next summer, although the 18-year-old has recently denied those claims.

However, speaking to journalists in the Netherlands, Kluivert has said that he can see himself moving to England in the next few years. 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.”

However, he also admitted that he is interested in a move to Spain, and would not rule out a move to Real Madrid, despite his fathers links to Barcelona:

“Everywhere I go abroad they know my father, he often asked: ‘Come to Barcelona, I’ll give a tour of Camp Nou’.

“I really wanted to go to Barcelona instead of Real Madrid. Barcelona is in my heart, but who am I to say no to Real Madrid?”
