Whether there’s a correlation remains to be seen, but De Boer’s agent wasn’t too shy to comment.
De Boer won four titles in six Eredivisie seasons, finishing second the last two seasons. He had said a year off was an option, but agent Guido Albers is interested.
“If a club like Everton comes to him of course he will be interested to talk.”
He described Everton as “an amazing club”, adding: “They will have their own shortlist. If Frank is on the shortlist, I don’t know.”
Could this happen quickly and cleanly? Odder things have occurred, and we’re fascinated by the idea of De Boer in a more competitive league than the Eredivisie.
