Ronald de Boer has revealed that his brother Frank wanted to sign Urby Emanuelson for Atlanta United.

Ronald was a guest on Fox Sports and revealed that Emanuelson was a target for his brother, but the deal did not happen.

He said, “Frank really wanted him, but I don’t think it will go ahead anymore. I don’t know why. My brother was looking for someone who can fill in multiple positions on the left.”

The 33-year-old has mainly been on the bench at Utrecht so far this season and has an expiring contract this summer. However, the MLS will be halfway through their campaign by the time Emanuelson is a free agent.
