The 18-year-old son of former prolific AC Milan, Ajax and Barcelona striker Patrick has been on the radar of some of European football’s top clubs for several years now after making developing into one of the continent’s hottest young wingers, and it appears Jose Mourinho has his heart set on bringing Kluivert to Old Trafford.
According to the Metro, Mourinho is eyeing Kluivert as an alternative to getting involved in the growing chase for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar – and today’s game will only have convinced the Portuguese of his worth even more.
Playing against Willem II at the Amsterdam Arena, the youngster lit up the proceedings by cutting inside onto his right foot and exploding an absolute rocket into the top corner:
What an absolutely stunning goal from Justin Kluivert. He‘s been completely rejuvenated since his switch from the right wing to the left wing. Doesn’t have the pace a Sané has for example so he’s much more effective as an inverted winger.pic.twitter.com/wJ0zQJMCHJ

Not at all bad, eh?
Do you think he has what it takes to make it in the Premier League?
