Ibrahim Afellay: Like if Jermaine Jenas and Cristiano Ronaldo had a lovechild

PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahim Afellay fancies a move to England.

There’s no doubt he has immense talent and his stock has never been higher.

Afellay said: “Playing in the Premier League would be best for my prestige. I’d like to play for Liverpool or Manchester United, the top-level prospect for any player.”

He could sign a pre-contract agreement with either English club as soon as January 1, as his contract with PSV expires at the end of the season.

The last thing either of these teams need is a shitty winger who managed to have a good game against an apathetic Sweden.

  4. dennis says:

    Afellay played as a defensive midfielder last year, which meant he scored less, he did have 5 assists. The year before that, in a more attacking midfield role he scored 14 times. This year he’s already on 4 in the league.

    With PSV he plays as a midfielder whereas in the Dutch national team he plays as a winger.
