José Mourinho is targeting Ajax’s Justin Kluivert this summer, with the 19-year-old favouring a move to Manchester United.

Kluivert, is the son of the former Barcelona and Netherlands centre-forward Patrick Kluivert, and has been in contract discussions with Ajax which are understood to have broken down because of his demand to be the highest-paid player at the club.

Kluivert asked for a sizeable rise to €1.5m (£1.3m) a year and a proportion of any transfer fee to be split between him and his agent, Mino Raiola. Ajax’s policy is to pay no player more than €1m, so Kluivert demanded a significant signing-on fee.

Kluivert scored 10 goals in 30 league games this season and believes he deserves fresh terms to reflect his growing status. He is on the wage of his initial professional contract, signed in 2016, which ends next summer. Kluivert made his international debut in March, as a replacement in the Netherlands’ 3-0 win over Portugal.

Kluivert likes to play as a wide forward and can operate on either wing. Mourinho was a coach at Barcelona in the late 1990s when Patrick Kluivert played for the club.

Interest in Kluivert surely is bad news for some, certain Anthony Martial, the 22-year-old has been unable to hold down a starting place. The French international came under ccriticism from Mourinho after last Friday’s 1-0 defeat at Brighton and he was on the bench for Thursday’s goalless draw at West Ham.
