Manchester United Plans To Grab 2 Youngsters In January 2018

Manchester United Plans to grab 2 Youngsters in January 2018

Manchester United are eyeing a move for Ajax teen sensation Justin Kluivert. He was the son of legendary Patrick Kluivert. The Red Devils have tracked the 18-year-old for more than a year as they look to improve the youth talent at the club.

As part of the move to improve the link between the senior squad and youth level, they are also looking at highly-rated Fulham full-back Ryan Sessegnon. Tottenham have been linked with moves for both players in recent weeks.

Kluivert was pictured speaking to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho in the aftermath of the Premier League side’s Europa League victory over Ajax in Stockholm in May.

It is alleged that the Special One said to him during the exchange: ‘You are a special one, let’s make a special transfer. ‘One more season, then you come to Manchester, and become my striker.’

 

Kluivert has emerged a potential star of the future over the last two seasons at Ajax and has scored four times in 14 Eredivisie appearances this term.

Sessegnon has been targeted by Premier League giants including Spurs, however, the 17-year-old signed a long-term contract at Craven Cottage earlier this year. A figure of £25million in order to secure his signature has been mooted.
