According to the latest reports, Manchester United are ‘in talks’ to sign this exciting Argentine wonderkid ahead of the summer transfer window.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking forward to a crucial summer transfer window at Manchester United. The Norwegian has endeavoured to emulate the philosophies of old at Old Trafford by taking Matt Busby’s and Sir Alex Ferguson’s recipe for success.

Solskjaer has concentrated his efforts on building a young team, capable of challenging for the Premier League title for decades to come.

Solskjaer’s efforts have already seen the likes of Mason Greenwood, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams stake a claim for first team spots despite their teenage years.

And it seems the Norwegian is desperate to add even more youngsters to his squad at Old Trafford.

Thiago Almada will be an unfamiliar name in England. However back in his homeland Almada is already a popular figure.

The diminutive Argentine attacker has established himself as a regular member Velez Sarsfield who play in the Argentine first division and is regarded as a star in the making and a fan favourite. Some have even inevitably labeled him the ‘next Lionel Messi‘ though those comparisons will be wide off the mark.

Thiago Almada has found the back of the net 7 times in 37 appearances for his club.

He is a robust midfielder, with clever tricks and feints able to deceive his opponents.

And according to a report by Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb via 90min, United’s are trying to sign Thiago Almada with the Red Devils having already established contact.

Almada has impressed the club’s scouts and he could be an astute addition. His track record despite his tender years is certainly impressive and there have been plenty of success stories of players being bought from South America over the years in the Premier League.

Think of the likes of Carlos Tevez and Antonio Valencia.

Thiago Almada could become a star at Old Trafford. In terms of playing style he is reminiscent of Alexis Sanchez in his prime and thanks to his pace he could be well suited to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s explosive counter attacking style.

Having only just turned 19 last month, Thiago Almada could be set for a very bright future.

Valued at just £16 million, he could be a huge bargain, especially with the Red Devils needing to bolster their attacking options.

Next. This is who Man United could play in their opening league fixture. dark
