Patrick Kluivert advises son Justin over possible Barcelona move

Manchester United Legends v FC Barcelona Legends

Patrick Kluivert has given his verdict on speculation that his son Justin could leave Ajax and potentially head for his former club Barcelona.

Justin has spoken about his future recently and name-checked Barcelona as one of several top clubs he would be tempted by, were he to leave Ajax.

His father says it’s difficult to turn down Barca when they come calling but also feels his 18-year-old son is not quite ready to make the move.

“Justin is doing very well, and must keep going like this,” he said. “He must keep his feet on the ground. I’ve told him that he is still 18 and should be relaxed and for sure stay another year or more at Ajax.

“When you go to another country, another competition, you must be strong mentally and physically, you should not leave too early.

”Then whatever will arrive will arrive. It is difficult to say no to Barca, but also to other big teams, the most important is to choose a team which suits his style of team, not the team which pays more money.

“I see my son playing more in the Spanish league than in the Premier League, but it will be his choice.”

Justin was linked with a move to Manchester United during January and if he maintains the sparkling form he has shown this season we can expect plenty more speculation this summer.
