Ajax starlet Justin Kluivert has been linked with a move to Manchester United and said rumours when into overdrive when Jose Mourinho approached the winger after last season's Europa League final.

Lip readers claimed that the United boss attempted to lure Kluivert to Old Trafford, but the player himself denied those reports.

"He just liked to see me," said Kluivert, who insisted the pair had met when he was younger. "Mourinho knows me from the time that I was a little boy and my father played at Barcelona when Mourinho worked there as an assistant trainer."

Jose Mourinho was part of the coaching staff at Barcelona when former striker Patrick Kluivert was plying his trade at the Camp Nou.

The Red Devils are understood to be keen on signing a winger with PSG's Lucas Moura and Bordeaux star Malcom ahead of Kluivert on Mourinho's wish-list.
