I think he controlled both games against us. He's not a flashy player like some of the other players of a similar age to him around Europe but him and de Jong make the team tick over which is impressive for a 19 year old.
Yeah I would be very happy if we signed him, impressed me against us in the Europa League. Don't think he really wants to end up in Russia but if there the only team interested then he's not got much choice, seems like Ajax need to sell.
Yeah I really like him too. We could possibly be looking at him as a centre midfield option after missing out on Modric, he has the capacity to run games. Hardly looking at signing another playmaker after signing Kagawa.
Weird role that he played against City in the Etihad fixture (didn't see the first leg). He played with his back to goal most of the game in a similar role to what Fabregas played for Spain at the Euro's in that 4-5 formation. I like him, but I am not sure his passing is good enough to play Midfield for United. He strikes the ball very well and he is quick over 5/10 yards, but I just don't think that is enough to play at United.
Heard he's only got 18 months left on his contract if Utd are interested they might enquire in the summer to get him on the cheap or we'll tap him up and tell him to sit tight and take him on a free in 18 months.
Seen the lad a few times and you can see there's talent there but I'm not sure Utd really play the system that suits him that role in behind the striker we already have Rooney & Kagawa who both want to play there really we need a replacement for Fletcher as I don't think we can keep gambling on him coming back as the player he was in his peak back in 2008-09
