Ajax face fight to keep Kluivert from United's clutches

Manchester United are reportedly set to step up their efforts to sign Ajax starlet Justin Kluivert in the summer transfer window.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is said to be a firm admirer of Kluivert, son of Barcelona legend Patrick, and there were reports of interest after last season's Europa League final.

The 19-year-old has enjoyed an impressive season for the Amsterdam outfit, scoring 10 goals and providing five assists in 30 Eredivisie games.

Kluivert's current Ajax contract runs until the summer of 2019, but he has yet to commit his future despite months of talks and is rumoured to want a new challenge.

And United are hoping to persuade the Dutchman to move to the Theatre of Dreams, although it's thought that a £50 million offer will be required.
