Piet de Visser, let the cat out of the bag when discussing the youngster with Dutch news outlets and SoccerNews.nl quote the Chelsea man as saying:
“I follow him and that goes beyond only watching a game. On Sinkgraven I can hardly say anything, because I agreed with Chelsea that I am not talking about talents that are on our list.”
De Visser seems to be kind of missing the point of a secret there and Chelsea are surely going to be frustrated that their transfer plans have been so publicly revealed.
The player himself has previously been linked with the likes of Bayern Munich and there were reports last season that new United boss Louis van Gaal wanted to bring the 19 year old to Manchester United on his arrival in England.
It was also said at the time that van Gaal would target his fellow countryman in the January transfer window offering Sinkgraven six months to get used to the rigours of the Premier League and then potentially force his way into the first team set-up next season.
Whether United return for the teenage sensation is up for debate but it appears they may have competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea if they do so.
