Mikki van Sas has stated he could have joined Ajax this summer but opted to swap Utrecht for Manchester City instead.

The 16-year-old goalkeeper will join Manchester City this summer, but he had a host of top clubs chasing him including Ajax, Barcelona and Manchester United.

Speaking to De Telegraaf, van Sas said, “These were difficult choices.

“It even went through my mind to stay with Utrecht. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to go to Ajax, I just wanted to go to Manchester City. They had the best plan for me.”

Van Sas and agent Nikkie Bruinenberg met City goalkeeper coach Xabier Mancisido,  “He knew everything about me, very impressive. It made me feel incredibly good.”
