Dirk Kuyt to Manchester United? Louis van Gaal linked with move for former Liverpool striker
The 33-year-old is currently playing for Fenerbahce
Manchester United have been linked with a shock move for former Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt.
Incoming manager Louis van Gaal is clearly a fan of the 33-year-old having selected him for the Netherland's World Cup squad and played him from the start in the 2-0 win over Chile in the group stage.
Reports now suggest Van Gaal may seek to continue working with Kuyt beyond this summer by bringing him to Old Trafford.
Since leaving Liverpool in 2012 the Dutchman has scored 18 goals in 63 league appearances for Turkish side Fenerbahce.
During his time at Liverpool he scored 51 goals in 208 league appearances over a six-year period. However it was Kuyt's work ethic rather than his goal return that caught the eye during his time at Anfield.
Who else have Manchester United been linked with?
Any move to bring Kuyt to Manchester United could be met with some resistance from fans. Few players have ever represented both English football's two most successful sides and Kuyt's hat-trick against United in 2011 will not have been forgotten at Old Trafford.
