Ajax's Justin Kluivert: Manchester United summer transfer unlikely

I know as much as you do. I was talking to my mum and dad that I wanted to play for him, because I really like his personality as a manager.

There were already question marks over the England international's place in Jose Mourinho's squad following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez last month and the addition of Kluivert could see him move further down the pecking order.

United have been linked with the likes of Gareth Bale and Antoine Griezmann in recent windows, but Mourinho insisted their recruitment plans will focus on other areas now that Sanchez, who opened his United account in the victory over Huddersfield at the weekend, is in the mix. You like to have things to write and things to speculate, especially in the summer.

Given Rashford is home grown and loved by the fans - along with seriously reluctant to leave the side he loves, it could be the case that Martial is the one pushed out, given his relationship with Mourinho, which can be hard at times, along with his desire to be starting week in, week out - and having less responsibilities defending - all things Mourinho is not willing to compromise on with his wingers and forwards.

"I change a few players and the intention was not to punish anyone", he was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

The United manager said: "I don't want attacking players".

"I am not top of the league and I have to say I am happy with the level of performance I am having the season with the referees team. Even against Huddersfield is a game to score more goals than two".

"In 2006-07, Manchester United wins the title back".

But the Frenchman's attitude and response impressed Mourinho, who praised Pogba's professionalism.

Ajax boast a long history of developing star players through their talented youth side including the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Edgar Davids. I can analyse body language. "He showed the way he took it in a very professional way".
