United Rival North Londoners For Highly-Rated Dutch Midfielder

By on April 10, 2013

Despite the transfer window being closed there is still plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Manchester United join the chase for Jordy Clasie.

Manchester United have joined Arsenal and Tottenham in the chase for highly-rated Dutch midfielder Jordy Clasie, according to the Express.

Clasie has been with Feyenoord since he was just nine-years-old and has emerged as one of the most exciting talents in Holland after breaking into the first team in 2011.

The 21-year-old is now considered an important part of the starting eleven and his eye-catching performances at the heart of Feyenoord’s team seems to have caught the attention of some of the Premier League’s heavy-weights.

The Express claims Arsenal and Tottenham have been tracking Clasie for some time with Arsene Wenger and Andre Villas-Boas both understood to be keen on luring him to England this summer.

However, it seems the north London rivals will have to fend off interest from run-away league leaders Manchester United, with the newspaper suggesting Sir Alex Ferguson has also identified the Dutch international as a potential recruit as he looks to bolster his midfield option at the end of the season.

Clasie is certainly a huge talent and has already been capped five times by the senior Dutch national team but the Express understand he will set the English trio back £6.5m if they want to sign him this summer.
