Manchester United target named in Eredivisie team of the season

Reported Manchester United target Daryl Janmaat has been named in the Eredivise team of the season, which was announced earlier today.

The Feyenoord right-back and Dutch international is thought to be one of incoming Reds boss Louis Van Gaal's main transfer targets this summer, and is expected to make the move to Old Trafford following the World Cup. 

According to the stats provided, Janmaat made zero defensive errors all season, passed with 82% accuracy making 31 key passes and scored twice whilst providing 5 assists. 

A very impressive write up for the potential Manchester United player, and fans will get a closer look at the 24-year-old in Brazil over the next month with him being a key cog in Van Gaal's Dutch defence. 

Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with the defender, but it's hard to see the North London side having a chance of competing with Manchester United for Janmaat's signature with Van Gaal spending all summer in close contact with his fellow Dutchman. 

United are in need of strengthening in the right-back area, Phil Jones is not proven as a natural full-back and Rafael has often looked unconvincing. 

Some fans may be wary of their previous excursions into the Dutch transfer market, Alexander Büttner arrived from Vitesse in 2012 and during his time at Old Trafford has looked nowhere near the required quality to represent Manchester United. 

But if anybody knows the ability of Janmaat it is Louis Van Gaal. The 62-year-old has spent two years working in close quarters with the defender and is evidently confident in his potential abilty to play in the Premier League.
