Manchester United are lining up a bid to sign Justin Kluivert from Ajax this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Guardian, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Red Devils are keen to pursue a move to sign the 19-year-old attacker from Ajax this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad ahead of next season.

The same story says that the teenager has been locked in contract talks with the Dutch club, but negotiations have broken down.

Now, the same article says that Kluivert could be heading to Manchester United this summer, with Mourinho said to be a huge admirer of the teenage talent.

Kluivert has been in strong form for Ajax so far this season, scoring 10 goals and making five assists in 30 league games for the Dutch side.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their final Premier League game of the season and a home clash against Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red Devils will then switch their attentions towards their showdown with Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley next Saturday afternoon.

Manchester United are aiming to try and end the season on a high by lifting the FA Cup trophy at Wembley.
