Ajax Forward Justin Kluivert Cools Talk of Manchester United Move

Sanchez joined United in a swap deal with Arsenal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way in January, giving Mourinho further depth in several positions across United's frontline.

"I prefer to look at it in the handsome way of a little kid that arrived here with his mum at nine-years-old for the first training session, 10 or 11 years later the kid is playing in a Manchester United shirt in an important match in the Premier League at home at Old Trafford, so I prefer to look at that perspective". "Who knows, we'll see".

Kluivert was an unused substitute in the UEFA Europa League final a year ago as Ajax lost to United, and Mourinho set tongues wagging when he was seen speaking to the winger after the match.

Despite his young age, Justin Kluivert has already made 43 first team appearances for Ajax, scoring eight goals and assisting another eight strikes.

He said: "The game is important because we need points to be the first of the last".

'We have only one No 9 - there is also Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] but let's forget Zlatan for the moment - and from having only one No 9, now we have more No 9s. Alexis is exactly the same.

Needless to say, if United are to maintain second spot and progress in the Champions League, this is where they need to improve.

'But I don't want attacking players, so don't speak about attacking players that are coming here because nobody is coming here.

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

That's not because the manager doesn't want the forward - far from it - but simply because the young star is getting anxious about his game time at the club and could well seek other chances and look at different clubs should he fall any further down the pecking order.

Sources have told ESPN FC that there is hope Rashford will be passed fit for the clash at St James' Park after he was able to finish the game against Huddersfield.
