Clarence Seedorf has revealed that he was close to joining an English side on several occasions.

Seedorf had an excellent career, winning four Champions League title’s while playing for Ajax, AC Milan and Real Madrid. However, the former midfielder never played in England.

Speaking to 90min, Seedorf revealed that he had held talks with several English clubs, but never made the move to the Premier League.

He said, “I was close to a transfer to the Premier League several times.

“I had almost signed with three different top clubs. Mainly Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea. They were all close to a deal, but I ended up making other choices back then. You cannot have everything. I can look back on a great career, so I’m happy.”
