Ajax interested in signing Cameron Borthwick-Jackson this summer – report

Ajax are keen on signing Manchester United’s Cameron Borthwick-Jackson after selling Jairo Riedewald to Crystal Palace, according to reports.

The youngster make a promising breakthrough into the first team squad under Louis van Gaal back in late 2015, displaying admirable coolness and precision on the ball.

He endured a difficult loan spell at Wolves last season, making just seven appearances, and has been subject to interest from Leeds United this summer.

And according to the Mail Online‘s Simon Jones, Ajax have also joined the race to lure Borthwick-Jackson away from Old Trafford.

The very fact that Borthwick-Jackson has garnered interest from a club that, just last season, steamrolled to a European with a bunch of youngsters at the very heart of their line-up is a testament to the way he impressed with his defensive style at Man United.

Ajax don’t just take any promising youngster; they invest in players with a natural air of composure and intelligence on the ball. This is, after all, the club that conceived Total Football – the epitome of footballing fluidity.

Supporters will, of course, desperately want the youngster to say, but nobody can question whether Ajax serve as a perfect fit for a player of Borthwick-Jackson’s qualities.
