It’s always exciting when footballing talent runs in the family, and Justin Kluivert, son of the legendary Patrick, certainly has a lot to live up to. The 18-year old is doing his best however, and is being tipped as the next big thing in European football.
He had been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United after an animated on-pitch discussion with Jose Mourinho at the Europa League final last season, but it is the Bundesliga’s new super club RB Leipzig who are keenest on acquiring his services, according to Eurosport.
The German giants currently sit second in the league, which is also the position they secured last season having only just been promoted. With the likes of Timo Werner already at the club, the addition of Kluivert would make them an even more exciting prospect.
The young winger has registered five goals and two assists in 13 Eredivisie appearances for Ajax this season, and looks to be a hugely promising player.
