Young gem at Barcelona emerges as Manchester United target

It’s getting closer to the summer transfer window.

Questions are bound to be asked about who Manchester United will be targeting in the transfer window. And a number of additions are needed if the Reds are to progress and challenge for the Premier League title next season.

Mundo Deportivo link 18-year-old Ilaix Moriba to Old Trafford, with CaughtOffside quick to make comparisons to Paul Pogba.

RB Leipzig are also named as interested and the player’s contract at Barcelona expires in 18 months’ time.

It seems they are waking up from one nightmare and going straight into another. The way in which they’ve been run is disastrous.
