Feyenoord: Janmaat Want To Do Better

Reports in today’s Daily Mirror state that United’s pursuit of Daryl Janmaat needs to take a step up if they are to acquire the 24-year-old right-back after a reported £4 million bid was shunned by the Dutch side.

The initial bid was reported in the Star on Sunday yesterday, but sources at The Daily Mirror claim Feyenoord are holding out for a fee in the region of £7 million for the Dutch International. The price may not be United’s only stumbling block in their efforts to sign Janmaat, Newcastle United are too interested according to reports, as they look to replace Mathieu Debuchy at St James Park.

In United’s favour is Janmaat’s already close relationship with Van Gaal, forged through the National Side. The pursuit would seemingly point to a lesser role for Rafael this coming season, as the Brazilian has been accused of complacency amongst many United fans, and Janmaat has shown himself in a good light during the World Cup, a showing that could culminate in a final appearance should Holland beat Argentina on Wednesday.

Janmaat would certainly prove a useful addition should he join, he has established himself in the Eredivise, and is used to Van Gaal’s style of play, especially if reports into the formation for next season are to be believed. With two goals in 30 games last season for his current side, and five in 63 during his two seasons at Feyenoord, he has shown he can contribute up the other end of the pitch too. Certainly, on the face of things, he seems a preferable option to Rafael, and for £7 million it may just be a risk worth taking.
