Manchester United may wrap up this season on a very high note. They had looked like a wretched side, like a broken cistern they could not be glued back together as a team during Jose Mourinho’s regime.
In previous transfer markets before the Portuguese got the boot, United found it incredibly hard to pick the cream of players.
The nightmare’s over for them at least for now, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their interim manager. Luck might smile on them in the summer as it had for them so far this season. And if all things go well, they could land teenage sensation Romello Mitchell.
Before, you’d have to worry if United was the right breeding ground for young talents when Mou was at the helm as he never glanced at their corner. The case is different however with Solskjaer. His brilliant selection of budding talents in their surprising win over Paris Saint-Germain in France shows how much the Norwegian trusts his players, an ingredient that was missing in Mourinho’s relationship with the same pocket of players.
Mitchell who currently plays for Birmingham is on the Red Devils radar and the 16-year-old is an big attention magnet.
Southampton, Manchester City, Wolves, and Leeds United are all crawling over him.
His impressive delivery in the U16 Blades Cup where is side trumped Liverpool 8-6, has raised the tally of clubs trying to sign him.
United will have to beat Liverpool, and Wolves who are hugely keen about signing the sensation.
