Manchester United hope to confirm the additions of three teenagers from abroad.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are hopeful of signing Marc Jurado, Alvaro Fernandez and Isak Hansen-Aaroen.
United have already confirmed the signing of Joe Hugill from Sunderland and Radek Vitek from Sigma Olomouc.
The report claims United are waiting on international clearance for Jurado, Fernandez and Hansen-Aaroen. The latter became Tromso’s youngest-ever player at the age of 15 years and 319 days earlier this month.
A source told the MEN: “Hopefully they’ll be sorted soon and we can get them confirmed.”
Although we have yet to see any first-team additions, I find it encouraging that United are signing youngsters from Spain’s two giants (Barcelona & Real Madrid, as well as them being players who were recently offered new deals to stay put. That means they decided to move on and join United.
These are talented boys who are coming to Manchester to further develop their careers. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the wheel they can see a route into the first-team, and the club is very much built on believing in young players.
You never know which youngster will be next to break into the first team. For instance, we didn’t know much about Brandon Williams before his emergence this season.
