Daley Sinkgraven ready for 'big' summer transfer says team-mate

Manchester United target Daley Sinkgraven is ready to make a big money summer move, according to Heerenveen team-mate Marten de Roon.

At just 19-years-old, Sinkgraven is considered one of the brightest young talents in the Dutch game, and has been attracting interest from around Europe.


Amongst his suitors are said to be Manchester United, who are keeping a close eye on him. Dutch boss Louis van Gaal raided the Eredivisie over the summer for Daly Blind of Ajax and could well do the same again in the new year.

While a move by Manchester United in the January window could be unlikely, De Room admits his team-mate's talent could see him whisked away from Heerenveen in the summer. He is so nimble, he almost dances on the field," he told Voetbal Primeur.

"He can do anything with his left foot. Daley is a player, for whom people come to the stadium. I hope he stays during the winter, but in the summer he will surely move to a big club."

That will certainly pique the interest of Manchester United who will likely continue their squad overhaul in the summer. Van Gaal has publicly stated that he is unlikely to do any business in the winter window so a summer swoop could suit all parties.

By then, Sinkgraven could well be a full Dutch international and attracting even more attention. He's already broken into the Dutch U21 team and has managed three goals in the Eredivisie so far this season.


Manchester United have previously sent scouts to watch the talented youngster in action, and it has previously been suggested that the likes of Liverpool, Barcelona and Real Madrid have been monitoring his development.

The influence of Van Gaal could persuade him to snub those clubs for Old Trafford however.
