Captaining the Manchester United ship is like having a heavy load on either side of the one’s shoulder, the pain definitely excruciating, one that almost cost boss Jose Mourinho his job few weeks back.
One thing has United strangled to a point. It has them taken aback,and that is their inability to lure players to the club.
Having one of the best managers in the world should definitely attract players, but that has not reflected in United’s current team.
Mourinho splashed so much in the window during his debut season as the club’s gaffer, and that got them a second place finish last season and a Champions League spot.
But this same cluster of players have experienced a run down in their performance.
A lot others are running out of their contract soon and no plans for replacement is underway.
While attracting the big profilers has been a hard task, getting teen recruits has been the other way round for the Manchester club.
United are fewer steps away from completing the deal for Noam Emeran from Amiens this summer after reaching an agreement, reports the Metro.
Emeran, 16, wowed United with his stellar performance for the French club’s youth team, catching the attention of United.
The U-16 France international, according to L’Equipe has agreed a deal already with the Red Devils.
United will wrap up the deal in the coming months, but Emeran will remain at the French outfit until next year.
