Manchester United set to steal Premier League star from rivals

Manchester United are expected to try and prize away an exciting Premier League star from one of their biggest rivals in recent history.

The January transfer window may have just drawn to a close but it hasn’t stopped more and more players being linked with Manchester United. The speculation is unsurprising given the drastic rebuilding process Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has undertaken since arriving at Old Trafford. The Norwegian wants to build a dynasty at the club and for that he needs a huge revamp in the Red Devils’ squad.

There are very few players in the current squad who fit the long term vision which Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has outlined. Many have already been shipped out since the Norwegian’s arrival but more are expected to follow in the summer.

Slowly and surely the deadwood will be snipped away and it will inevitably herald the arrival of a new set of players.

United seems to have a very clear strategy on the players they are trying to sign at the moment. The club are on the hunt for young players with huge potentials who can help the Red Devils dominate for decades to come.

In Arsenal at the Emirates stadium, Bukayo Saka certainly fits that mould.

According to the Daily Mail the current Arsenal youngster’s future is uncertain with the Londoners as he has just entered ‘the final 18 months’ of his current contract with the club. That has sparked the interest of Manchester United who could swoop in with a move for the young player.

Bukayo Saka was extremely impressive against the Red Devils in a tie between the two club’s earlier this season and the 18 year old has established himself as one of the most exciting prospects in the Premier League.

Bukayo Saka already has 15 Premier League appearances under his belt playing in an unorthodox left back position as well as four appearances in the Europa League where he played left wing and scored two goals. With his versatility and clear footballing intelligence as well as abundance of pace the midfielder could be a huge asset at Old Trafford.

It would be a major coup if Manchester United could attract Bukayo Saka to the club, though it is unlikely given the emergence of Brandon Williams in the same position who has become somewhat of a fan favourite.
