I've seen this mentioned in the Kluivert thread too, people can't keep comparing every wide/forward player that plays in the Dutch league to Depay. There have been plenty of successful Dutch players in the Premier League, there have been duffers too (Other than Depay) but that doesn't mean to say every player will be bad.
Seems a tad one dimensional. Runs down the wing, cuts back on his left, repeat.
If that is his ‘highlights’ reel then he’s exactly the opposite of what we need - a lightweight, flashy diver who has no crossing ability whatsoever. Was there even a single cross in that video?
this thread being so negative is a mystery to me. As much as I enjoy Kluivert, Neres is a level above at this point in literally all facets of the game.
Neres has an incredible first touch, coupled with an inventiveness in how to use that touch to get by defenders
here's 4 or so I've thrown together off the top of my head
He always passes and moves looking for the combination, which is invaluable in an Ajax winger. Has the ability to delay a pass, keeps his head up and is incredibly unselfish despite being a fantastic dribbler. On top of all of that, he's so incredibly cool in front of goal, that I've vouched for playing him centrally (or alongside Dolberg in a 2-striker system)
He doesn't cross often, due to being a leftfooter at right wing, though I've seen him give decent crosses with his right foot, but he usually tends to cut back or get himself into a position where he can lay it across goal with his right foot. also can be very clever with those balls in the box, just look at this pass
He's honestly so calm and multifaceted. His dribbling is his best asset, but his passing and finishing is nearly just as good. Above all is his awareness and football intelligence. Reminds me of a smaller R9 on the wings.
oh also he's surprisingly strong. far stronger than Kluivert on the other wing (though 2 years older)
Its not time for young players folks.
He really is a natural dribbler. He has many downsides as of right now though to play in a physical league like EPL in a troublesome scenario.
I'm surprised the Mail admits there are actual footballers in europe. Worst newspaper for news and sport. utter crap, which is how I view this "story"

You know the rule. Every Dutch player is a Depay now and dont buy from Dortmund either.
He is brazillian.
Hates staying on his feet. He's on the ground for half the video. Nah, leave well alone.
touche okay every player from the Eredivisie
We’ve got Rashford (20), Martial (21), Lukaku (25), Lingard (25), Gomes (17), Gribbin (19) and Chong (18) so what we need is an established and experienced forward player seeing as we’ve already got 7 players 25 and below up top.
I’m not saying it’s who we should go after but we need to be looking at the likes of Griezmann, Bale or Dybala who are all experienced at the highest level and proven talents. Right now (I’m not including Zlatan) we only have Sanchez as a player at the peak of his powers and we need another one, the young players will learn from them but they’ll also make an instant impact themselves.
Neres is a left footed RW. I'd rather have Leon Bailey, l left footed forward who can play both wings and striker as well as take set pieces. He's a 20 year old budding superstar in the Bundesliga.
You can't be serious about bale
I second this.
Brazilian defender - check
Dutch league - check
Move on - check
That sums up my thoughts exactly.
I simply don't want any more players from the Dutch league. Those guys are bad. I mean, really bad.
Yup too much of a glass.
But if he remains fit, he might be the match winner which we are sorely missing.
In that goal he gave the defence 4 bites at the cherry and only poor defending resulted in that goal
Davinson Sanchez just came from that same league. Anyway, i dont think David Neres is really linked with United. The rumours about Kluivert look more reliable.
Don't think he's a defender though. So probably might want to uncheck that first one.
Weird, I just bought him in my FIFA career mode and we’re now linked. Same happened with Bailly. Shall I get Neymar now?
Missed that one, the Dutch league is still pretty rubbish and we don't need any more forwards in the summer.
He's more of a Right Winger, so wouldn't be a bad idea to see how he proceeds for the rest of the campaign. We have only 5 players for the 3 positions behind Lukaku. Ideally, we need 6. Unless Pereira will be given a chance there, we do need bring someone in I reckon. Mourinho has said something along similar lines as well.
I did say “I’m not saying it’s who we should go after” and was talking about how we need to sign an attacker who’s proven at the highest level, Bale wasn’t necessarily who I meant as our top target.
Another quality first touch followed by passing his defender yesterday
Either Kluivert or Neres is getting sold. Ajax had a deal to buy Richarlison from Fluminense, why would they buy another winger if they didn't plan to sell someone?
When we tried to sign him Younes was still one of our starting wingers. Also having just two wingers is not enough.
Right now I can see us selling kluivert because of his contract situation. Selling Neres would actually surprise me.
