Manchester United have signed Ajax wonderkid, Millen Baars, beating Chelsea and Arsenal to his signature.
The 16-year-old signed for the Old Trafford club in October and his father, Stefan has now confirmed the acquisition.
The winger, who captains Ajax under-17 side was invited for tours around Chelsea, United and Arsenal, but declined the invite to the Emirates after deciding to join Mourinho’s side.
“We have had talks with Ajax that were between Millen and the club,” Stefan Baars told Noordhollands Dagblad. “But it was certainly nothing shocking, he was even appointed captain this season of the B1.
“Ajax is a great club with a very good youth, but they can unfortunately not cope so very well. You saw in the past with other youth players who now play at other clubs. But Millen was ready for a different challenge.
“He played nine seasons in Amsterdam and he has always had the dream to play football in England at Manchester United.
“There was interest from Italy, Portugal and England, but when he was at Chelsea and United to look, he knew he wanted to play in Manchester.
“He did not even see Arsenal, his choice was made.”
