Justin Kluivert dreaming of emulating father at Barcelona

Justin Kluivert dreaming of emulating father at Barcelona

"Last year we showed what we can do in the Europa League, we'd prefer to experience another season like that and if we keep our current selection together, there is a good basis".

"But in football you never know, so I can not really answer that question".

Kluivert senior has now claimed that his son will have the final decision on his future but urged him to continue at Ajax for at least one more campaign.

Justin has six goals and four assists in 19 Eredivisie appearances so far this season and young players can often look to fast-track themselves to the top, but his father Patrick, who had spells with Barcelona and Milan after coming through the Ajax academy, has some advice for his son.

"It is hard to say no to Barca, but also to other big teams, the most important is to choose a team which suits his style of team, not the team which pays more money".

"Real Madrid? I could not turn down interest if they were interested".

"I am also open to a move to England, the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United are all great clubs and yes, I could see myself playing there. Barcelona is in my heart, but who am I to say no to Real Madrid?" And while he has not proved himself on the grandest of stages just yet, Kluivert junior will not be short of offers when he too graduates from the Amsterdam Arena. Unlike his centre-forward father, Justin is a rapid, right footed left-winger and he has shone for Ajax ever since breaking into their first-team midway through last season with a flurry of tricks and the odd wonder-goal. But Kluivert has poured water on his potential move to Old Trafford over concerns of having a lack of first times opportunities. A few more years at Ajax?
