Manchester United could move for Jordy Clasie this summer

Published Add your comment

Manchester United could make a move for Netherlands international Jordy Clasie this summer if and indeed when Louis van Gaal finally officially takes the reins as the club's next full-time manager.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Van Gaal - who is widely expected to be confirmed in his new role this week following the national team's friendly with Ecuador in Amsterdam on Saturday - has Clasie in his thoughts as part of the club's Dutch focus and could contemplate a transfer.

With Manchester United evidently badly in need of new midfield reinforcements, Clasie - who currently plays in the Eredivisie with Feyenoord - could potentially prove an astute purchase.

While it is certainly true that he has yet to test his abilities away from his native Netherlands, 22-year-old Clasie is obviously very highly-regarded - not least by Van Gaal, with the Dutch boss already having handed him seven senior international caps.

While Clasie - who provided a fantastic assist for Robin van Persie's sensational goal at the Amsterdam ArenA at the weekend - is obviously an integral member of the current first-team squad at De Kuip, one has to assume that he might be sorely tempted by a potential switch to a club as reputable as Manchester United, especially if a familiar face like Van Gaal were also move to Old Trafford.
