According to the latest reports, Manchester United are edging closer to completing a transfer for this up and coming teenage sensation.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hardly put a foot wrong at Manchester United. Especially when it comes to his recruitment. The Norwegian has instilled a clear philosophy at Old Trafford. Solskjaer has concentrated the club’s efforts on buying young players with ample potential.

It is a recipe which worked wonders for Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson, and it is one Solskjaer will hope will reap him similar success.

For years now the Red Devils have hung in a limbo. Briefly they stood on the precipice of success only to falter from the edge and descend down into the gaping abyss. Moyes, Van Gaal and Mourinho bought fleeting moments of success, vestiges and small glimmers of what the Red Devils fans have been used to under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Solskjaer has come the closest to rekindling the same spirit in the side. Under the Norwegian the youth have thrived and the transfer policy at Old Trafford finally has a clear and direct mandate which the club strive to stick by.

One player who fits impeccably into Solskjaer’s recycled model of success is Jude Bellingham.

The Red Devils have pursued the 16 year old Birmingham midfielder since January. They were even rumoured to have made a bid for the starlet’s services during the winter window. Ultimately in January, nothing materialised out of that purported bid.

However, despite the club’s failure to secure the deal, United have not given up on their pursuit.

Jude Bellingham has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the last few months and it seems a deal could now finally be edging closer and closer to completion.

A report by 90min via The Peoples Person has claimed that a source has told them from United that they believe a deal for Jude Bellingham is ‘effectively sealed.’

United are even prepared to take Jude Bellingham’s brother, Jobe who is also a highly rated prospect into the club’s academy as part of the deal according to the report.

Jude Bellingham is an exceptional talent. The 16 year old is rightly regarded as a crucial part of England’s future and with Solskjaer needing to bolster his midfield Bellingham could be the perfect addition.
