Hoogewerf could be the next big thing coming out of Ajax, with the Eredivisie giants having a history of having one of the world’s best academies.
Many legends have started out with the Amsterdam side, while their current first-team is also full of some top talent as their youthful squad stunned Europe to get as far as the Champions League semi-finals this season.
This could end up being smart business by United if they pull it off.
