Manchester United are one of a number of English Premier League clubs keen on Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, according to reports in the UK.
The Dutchman has impressed at the start of this season for his club and the Red Devils are believed to be tracking the player’s development very closely. Fans on Twitter had a mixed reaction to the story. Some would back a move for the teenager who is seen as a bright young talent, but others have questioned the need to sign yet another midfielder:
Woaahhhh absolute baller

Gravenberch does generally play as a central midfielder, rather than in more attacking positions like Donny van de Beek but it must be said that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already very well stocked in that area of the pitch.
United would also face competition for the 18-year-old’s signature from the likes of Juventus and Barcelona so it remains to be seen whether they will make a move for the youngster ahead of other interested clubs.
