Manchester United's attack is as good as Manchester City's, claims Ryan Giggs

Manchester United are in advanced talks to sign Justin Kluivert and are ready to agree a £10m deal to sign the highly-rated Ajax attacker in the summer, according to the Mirror.

However, speaking to Voetbal Inside after Ajax's win over NAC Breda, Kluivert shut down the rumours.

"I haven't spoken to Jose Mourinho myself". I know as little as you guys do.


United manager Jose Mourinho certainly has plenty of top class forward options at his disposal, although he has struggled to find the necessary balance between attack and defensive at times this season - especially against top-six rivals.

He also, after the 1-0 win over Tottenham in October, expressed his unhappiness with United fans over what he regarded as unfair treatment of Romelu Lukaku.

A move to one of Europe's heavyweights may be of interest to Kluivert in the coming years, but the best place for the Holland youth international's is undoubtedly at Ajax, where he will be afforded regular game-time as they strive for silverware.


2012/13: Manchester United - Having won the league in Sir Alex Ferguson's final season in charge, United struggled in the Scot's absence with David Moyes leading the club to a seventh-placed finish the following season. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.

"...we have Alexis. We have Rashford...", he replied. Sanchez played on the right for Barcelona so I don't think it is set in stone that he'll play on the left every game. "I played with a few of them at Porto", Alenichev admits.

Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? In the absence of any imminent changes in the former, we therefore concentrate on other areas where we can have an impact in the short to medium term. Attacking players, I am really happy with.


2010/11: Manchester United - Winning the league by nine points, as well as reaching the Champions League final, United came very close to retaining their Premier League title the following season - only missing out on goal difference (second).
