In an interview with Dutch outlet De Telegraaf, he explicitly stated his desire to leave the Bergamo club, even hinting he would do just fine in one of England’s fine cities.

This little quip comes as good news to all concerned with United on account of just how rainy it is usually in Manchester and Koopmeiners subtle reference was in a way agreeing to a move there.

The Dutchman can play in any position in midfield, but he has found his best form playing as an attacking midfielder.

His technique and composure in midfield guarantee he could be a great addition to a Manchester United midfield lacking the same.

However, United may face serious competition for his services.

Napoli tried to sign him last summer, and Koopmeiners also mentioned Juventus when talking about his alleged suitors ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

“Already last year there was a concrete interest from Napoli but in the end, the clubs couldn’t find an agreement. “I would be lying if I said that I’m not aware of the interest from Juventus and a Premier League club. Naturally, I read the news too,” he mentioned.

Atalanta are reportedly seeking an offer around 60 million euros, which won’t be an easy price for his suitors to meet.
