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

PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahim Afellay fancies a move to England. The 24-year-old, who scored twice for the Netherlands against Sweden earlier this week, says he would be interested in a transfer to either Liverpool or Man Utd. 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.

However, I think Ibra needs to reassess just how “top-level” Liverpool are these days.

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.
