Report: 18 y/o French starlet attracting interest from Manchester United

Manchester United and fellow Premier League rivals Everton could be set to battle it out in the race to sign French youngster Joel Ngoya.

Ngoya, 18, is currently on a youth contract with French side, Lille, and is believed to be considering his options as a host of European heavyweights ponder a move for the talented midfielder.

As reported by France Football, Ngoya had expected to be offered a professional contract by Lille, however, that has yet to happen, prompting him to consider a move away from the Ligue 1 outfit.

It is believed that representatives of the youngster have contacted both United and Everton regarding a possible move.

However, with interest also coming from the likes of Valencia, Lyon and Atletico Madrid to name just a few, it is clear the youthful midfielder’s services are high in demand.

France Football add that front runners at this early stage are Olympique de Marseille, who are expected to submit a formal bid in the coming days.

Should Manchester United be tempted by Ngoya, they will need to act quickly and efficiently in order to secure a deal.
