If Manchester United want to sign Steven Bergwijn, they will have to qualify for the Champions League.

Despite the fact that the winger has just signed a new contract to stay back at PSV Eindhoven, Man Utd are said to be greatly interested in the player.

Bergwijn, who is currently recovering from a hamstring injury, is reportedly being closely monitored by the Man Utd scouts.

However, sources close to the Holland star insist he will only leave PSV for a Champions League club.

Bergwijn, who has three goals and nine assists in 19 games this season in all competitions, was a target for the club last summer as well, but decided to stay.

The 22-year-old would cost in excess of £40m now after extending his contract to 2023, but that will not put United off.

When asked about an Old Trafford switch earlier this year, Bergwijn said:

Manchester United are a good club, without a doubt.

But I am only 21 years old and in no hurry to leave PSV.

When you join a new club, a better team, you automatically raise your level because of the level of the other players on the pitch.

If something good comes up, I’ll be ready for it. Otherwise, I’ll be happy to stay at PSV.

Bergwijn was forced out of the Holland squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers as he had picked up a hamstring playing for PSV in the Europa League.
