Dolberg rules out leaving Ajax for the Premier League

Manchester City and Manchester United have been linked with a swoop for Kasper Dolberg, but the teenager is not ready to leave the Dutch club yet.

Dolberg rules out leaving Ajax for the Premier League

Ajax's teenage sensation Kasper Dolberg believes it is too soon for him to leave the Eredivisie for clubs such as Manchester City or Manchester United, despite interest from abroad in the prolific Denmark international.

In his first campaign with the senior side, the 19-year-old has scored 19 goals in all competitions this term to help Peter Bosz's side mount a challenge for the Eredivisie title and reach the Europa League semi-finals.

Dolberg, who made his first appearance for Denmark against Kazakhstan last November, is not yet ready to think about leaving Amsterdam, despite reported interest from a host of Premier League clubs.

The Dane has no ideal destination when the time comes for him to move on, but he hinted at a boyhood preference for LaLiga giants Barcelona or perennial Premier League top-four contenders Arsenal.

Dolberg: "When I was young it was Barcelona"

"It's too big a step to go to City or United now," Dolberg told FourFourTwo. "It's important to keep on playing, as I don't know what could happen in the future.

"I haven't got a dream league. When I was young it was Barcelona [that was my favourite team], but once I got older I didn't have one.

"In England, I followed Arsenal because of Thierry Henry, but it wasn't like Arsenal was my favourite."
