Justin Kluivert Names The Clubs He Could See Himself Playing For

Ajax hotshot Justin Kluivert has named the clubs he could see himself playing for in the future.

The 18-year old winger, son of former Barcelona man Patrick Kluivert, has stepped up to the Ajax first-team and made a total of 24 appearances this term, scoring seven goals and chipping in with four assists.

Earlier in the season, he scored a stunning hat-trick against Roda JC, demonstrating just what a special talent he is.

Having found the net in glorious fashion in the 45th, 60th and 85th minute respectively, he achieved something his famous father failed to do - score an Eredivisie hat-trick.

It's no surprise that he's attracting interest from some of the titans of European Football. And though he has a contract until 2019, he does talk up the prospect of playing in the Premier League.

"England appeals to me: Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea or Manchester United are nice clubs where I can see myself playing in a few years," he said in an interview Helden, as quoted by Goal.

The Dutchman added that his heart is in Barcelona, where his dad played for six years and won one La Liga title. But despite his allegiances there, he says he'd still be tempted by the mighty Real Madrid.

"Everywhere I go abroad they know my father, he often asked: 'Come to Barcelona, I'll give a tour of Camp Nou.'

"I really wanted to go to Barcelona instead of Real Madrid. Barcelona is in my heart, but who am I to say no to Real Madrid?"

After the Europa League final in Stockholm back in May, Kluivert was spotted in conversation with Jose Mourinho - with many drawing to the conclusion to it was transfer-related.

However, as per Kluivert, there was no tapping up and it's all just speculation.

"There will always be rumours, but not all is true. I know as little as you guys do," he is quoted as saying by Metro.

"I get that question a lot of course, but he did not say anything like that in the last match against United."

Is Kluivert destined to go all the way to the top? Sound off in the comments.
