Manchester United to sell their best wonderkid in Bruno Fernandes deal


The highly rated Manchester United youngster is expected to be on his way out of Old Trafford with a move abroad beckoning.

Manchester United is esteemed for its highly rated academy set-up. The Trafford Centre, situated in Carrington on the very outskirts of Manchester, is the home of both the Red Devils’ academy and first team training ground complex.

At the heart of the club’s ethos is the development and implementation of youth. There is no question that Manchester United have been the most successful English side in terms of academy success over the last few decades. From David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs to Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba and a whole host of other talents.

United have always valued young talent and they nurture their academy players closely alongside the first team.

Sir Alex Ferguson was the pioneer in the United project during the 1990s. Though he was not the first to do so. At the core of Matt Busby’s philosophy was also the development of local youth players. It is a tradition which stems all the way back from the 50s at Old Trafford though over the last number of years it has been somewhat neglected.

Only recently under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has Old Trafford seen another resurgence with exciting player coming through in the likes of Brandon Williams, Scott McTominay and Mason Greenwood.

Another talent that has been tipped for stardom is undoubtedly the Red Devils’ best U23 player Tahith Chong, who has been catching the eye at academy level.

Yet it seems the Dutch youngster may not be making his name at Old Trafford. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to wrap up the deal for Bruno Fernandes the Daily Star has claimed that the Red Devils are willing to offer Tahith Chong as part of the deal to bring the Portuguese player to Old Trafford.

Bruno Fernandes would be a valuable addition to the team, however Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may regret his decision to include the club’s best academy player as part of the deal.
