Ajax striker Brian Brobbey has been urged to consider what happened to Memphis Depay at Manchester United, while considering a move this future.

Journalist Wim Kieft covers the Ajax striker today as he continues to be linked with a move away from Ajax once again.

The striker has been in fine form for Ajax this season, with an impressive record of 17 gaols and four assists in 27 games to date.

That means he’s already surpassed his record of 17 goals and four assists in 45 games in all competitions last season and appears on course for an impressive tally come the end of the campaign.

His performances have not gone unnoticed, and he’s regularly found himself being linked, and indeed questioned, about a potential move away.

Manchester United are always at the forefront of the transfer rumours, with Ten Hag believed to be a big fan of the striker and Old Trafford generally seen as a good destination for him.

Kieft isn’t one of those who agrees with that outlook, though, and instead believes Brobbey would be advised to look at how it went for Memphis Depay at Manchester United before considering a move there, or anywhere else.

“He and Brobbey both went abroad too early at the beginning of their careers,” he said.

“Although Depay had achieved something at PSV , the step to Manchester United turned out to be too big. Leipzig could not match that level, but it was still too big a step for Brobbey from the youth of Ajax.

“His salvation was that Ajax brought him back for a lot of money. Here in his own familiar environment, he is developing much better, but you are not immediately ready for a move to a top European club after one good Eredivisie season.

“In England or Spain, you are like Cody Gakpo and Depay against top defenders. It wouldn’t be smart if he left Ajax after this season.

“Maybe his agent wants to quickly make a profit from his current form, but for Brobbey himself, another season of the Eredivisie would be the best from a sporting point of view.

“At Ajax he can become even stronger, score more, gain more confidence, play even better and then he entered a major foreign club as an established name. Don’t let money be the determining factor.”
