Manchester United have struck a deal to add a Norwegian prodigy to their ranks next summer, while a big-money Chelsea signing is poised for a surprise transfer in the coming days, according to Tuesday’s European papers.
MAN UTD AGREE DEAL TO SIGN NORWEGIAN FORWARD
Manchester United are understood to have reached an agreement to sign Isak Hansen-Aaroen.
The 14-year-old (he turns 15 next week) is considered the best Norwegian prospect in a generation and United are said to have agreed a package to bring him to Old Trafford in summer 2020.
Reports in both the Norwegian media and the Manchester Evening News say the deal has been given the green light by United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has spoken personally to the youngster’s parents and used his contacts in his homeland to get the deal over the line for the Red Devils.
While it will be some years before United see the talented attacker in their first-team ranks, it’s believed United have a star in the making on their hands in Hansen-Aaroen, with the player looking a low-risk addition to the club’s youth ranks.
And Hansen-Aaroen will become the latest youngster tipped for a bright future at United after a deal to sign French wonderkid Hannibal Mejbri was agreed on Sunday.
