The guy in question is a journalist called ( I think?) Marcel van der Kraan, and although seeming massively supportive of the idea that the player would flourish in the EPL, he was convinced no approach had been made from any English outfit.especially bizarre because he's openly spoken about his admiration for English football and love for English defenders and stuff in the past, as well as the fact that he doesn't really care for the Spanish league and has never really followed it (in discussion with De Jong in that Q&A vid, who was talking about having always followed Barca)
I would agree that this lack of interest would seem perplexing, but maybe it speaks to the prospect of a deal with another club having already, in some provisional sense, been brokered? Hope it's not the case, and that UTD pull their finger out, and show some intent. We shall see.
EDIT: I guess being an Ajax fan you'd be happy if this supposed apathy were to continue? Do you think he'll go this summer?
