Ajax youngster Justin Kluivert was advised by his international instructor Ronald Koeman to neglect Mourinho’s interest and focus on developing his talent in the Dutch League, according to report.
The 18 year-old Dutchman is presently one of the best youngsters in the world after breaking into limelight with his consistent brilliant performance for the Eredivisie giants.
Reports have been linking the young prospect with a move to Barcelona this summer as Lionel Messi is believed to be one of the players who would love to see him switch to Camp Nou. Kluivert 18, is a son to Patrick who once featured for the Blaugranas during his active days as a player. The youngster is therefore believed to follow the footsteps of his father by joining Barcelona in the summer despite United’s longtime interest.
While reacting to the rumors over the player’s future at Amsterdam, Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman who gave the youngster his debut call-up to the national team, advised Kluivert to remain at Ajax where his playing-time is guaranteed unlike Barcelona or Manchester United whose players are in intense competition for game-time.
The manager hopes that Kluivert sign a new contract extension with the Dutch side who are not ready to let go of young winger by the end of the season.
It is yet to be seen if the former Everton and Southampton manager will allow the youngster have debut appearance when the team battle England later today at the Wembley stadium.
