The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Netherlands. He has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 5 goals in 18 senior appearances for the Netherlands national team.

The former PSV man will offer new United boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.

According to the report, “Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn is being linked with Manchester United. The Daily Mail says Erik ten Hag is considering moving for long-term target Bergwijn when he takes over at Manchester United. Bergwijn, the Tottenham Hotspur winger, was close to linking up with Ten Hag at Ajax in January. But Spurs blocked the Holland international’s exit after encouraging performances, including two decisive goals during stoppage time of the dramatic 3-2 victory at Leicester City. The 24-year-old has started just once since, with loan signing Dejan Kulusevski preferred by Antonio Conte in a front three alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Bergwijn looks destined to leave Spurs this summer and is likely to cost around £20million after a stop-start two years in the capital. Clubs in Germany and France are also monitoring his situation.”
