Arguably football's most exciting prodigy reveals interest in joining Chelsea

14 February 2018

Kluivert scored six goals and recorded four assists in the Eredivisie thus far, attracting the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United.

Ajax teenage star Justin Kluivert has admitted he can see himself playing in the Premier League in few years after suggesting Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester United are "nice clubs".

However, he has now opened the door for a future move to United and their rivals after admitting that a move to England appeals him.

"Last year we showed what we can do in the Europa League, we'd prefer to experience another season like that and if we keep our current selection together, there is a good basis". A few more years at Ajax?

He has featured in 33 Eredivisie games this season, scoring eight goals, and is already said to have attracted the attention of some of Europe's finest clubs.

His son Justin has attracted interest from a number of clubs - including heavy links with Manchester United - and the 18-year-old winger recently named six potential destinations for when he leaves Ajax.

Kluivert junior has now opened the door to a move to United but it seems he's keeping his options open as the teenager also named Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham as clubs he'd like to play for here in England.

"I do not know where I will next play, but my heart is set on joining Barca", Kluivert told Dutch outlet Helden.

He added: "Everywhere I go overseas they know my father, he often asks: "Come to Barcelona, I'll give [you] a tour of Camp Nou".

There are suggestions that Jose Mourinho, who worked with Patrick Kluivert at the start of his coaching career at Barcelona, is a fan of Justin and wants to take him to Old Trafford.
