Manchester United are set to miss out on transfer target Justin Kluivert with Roma close to signing the youngster, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato, as per TeamTalk, Roma director Monchi will look to sign Kluivert’s Ajax teammate Hakim Ziyech as well.
It has been long reported that United manager Jose Mourinho had been on the trace of the attacker for a year after being seen talking to the Kluivert when his side beat Ajax in the 2017 Europa League final.
Kluivert, 19, son of Barcelona legend Patrick, has just a year remaining on his Ajax contract, but it no longer looks like he will be headed to the Premier League.
The report claims Kluivert has already agreed on personal terms with the Serie A giants and a transfer could be completed very soon.
I haven’t seen enough to Kluivert to be let down by this, but Memphis Depay still gives me nightmares.
Anyhow, do you think United have missed out on a gem? Let us know in the comments section below.
#Roma director Monchi today had a meeting with Mino Raiola and found an agreement for Justin #Kluivert. The winger has accepted 5-years contract bid. Now, Roma will start talks with #Ajax and will try to finalize the deal (price around €20M). And Kluivert is waiting… 🇳🇱
