According to the report the Premier League giant Manchester United have beaten Chelsea and Arsenal to the signing of Ajax wonder kid Millen Baars.
The 16-year-old Millen Baars, who is a winger and captain of Ajax's Under-17 side, was invited for tours around Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea but called off a visit to the north London side after being, convinced to move to Old Trafford.
As recently the 16-year-old winger’s father, Stefan Baars has confirmed the news that Millen Baars reportedly agreed to the switch to the Old Trafford in October.
As Stefan Baars told Noordhollands Dagblad,
"We have had talks with Ajax that were between Millen and the club,"
"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."
