Chelsea Looking To Make A Move For 18 Y/O Ajax Starlet: Why He Should Turn Them Down

Ajax winger Justin Kluivert has been linked with a move to Chelsea. The son of former star Patrick Kluivert, Justin is only 18 but is fairly making his own name in the football circuit. Latest reports have confirmed that Chelsea are interested in bringing in the starlet to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

The youngster is a regular starter at Ajax and has scored 6 goals in around 25 games this season. After Manchester United’s win over Ajax in the Europa League final last season, the Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho was spotted in speaking to the player. Rumours suggested that he could have been tapping up the youngster but Kluivert calmed the media by saying, “He just liked to see me. Mourinho knows me from the time that I was a little boy and my father played at Barcelona when Mourinho worked there as an assistant trainer.”

It now seems that United’s rivals Chelsea are ready to swoop in for him. English football could never see his father in action but could land the son of the former Barcelona star. The winger could be on his way and young Justin has all the intention of living up to the billing.

If you get a nice offer, you never know,” he told Helden. “England appeals to me: Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea or Manchester United are nice clubs where I can see myself playing in a few years.”

However, Kluivert is also not ruling out a move to Spain. He added: “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?”

This would mean that the winger could be set for some transfer battle amongst the top clubs and Chelsea will have act fast and steady if they want to land him.

Although Kluivert would add some much-needed pace and threat in Chelsea’s final third, the player must be careful before signing a deal. The Blues are known for scouting young talent however they are also known for misusing these gifted youngsters and moving them on for a profit margin. It sometimes works out well like the case of Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah but sometimes it flops their careers like Lucas Piazon, Marko Marin and so on.
