Ajax beat Man Utd, Chelsea for Boilesen

Manchester United and Chelsea have been trumped by Ajax for Danish prospect Nicolai Boilesen.

The Premier League pair have been hot on the trail of the left-back and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was said to be particularly keen on the teenager as a potential successor for Patrice Evra.

But Boilesen has rejected the overtures of the English duo by choosing to sign for Dutch giants Ajax.

He has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract but Ajax still have to agree a transfer fee with Brondby.
