Manchester United beat the likes of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund to the signing of talented prodigy

Manchester United are deemed to improve every aspect under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s supervision.

The current chairman of Premier League football side Tottenham Hotspur, Daniel Levy, believes running a football club is the hardest business he has had ever encountered. They are the Londoners, the organisation that is located in one of the poorest areas of London, and the ones that have not had tasted any sort of glory in their recent past.

However, they now have a serial winner at their helm. In his own words, he hates losing more than he loves winning; Jose Mourinho is the man of his own makings. Before Mourinho became the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, he had quite a memorable tenure under the brightest floodlights of Old Trafford — he was the protagonist at Manchester United.

His time in the northwest part of England would be remembered for more of his tender thoughts and ideologies towards the game rather than what he had done for the football club. To be precise, United, since the departure of the legendary figure in Sir Alex Ferguson, have had witnessed many darkest days — Mourinho’s spell at the club might have had majority of the share in that particular disdain.

During that period, the players like Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford were not getting the much-needed game-time — even Martial was looking to make his move out of the club. And graduates from the academy were not receiving the recognition they might have expected from their first-team boss.

Even though one can argue that Mourinho had a significant role behind the rise of Scott McTominay, United fans were undoubtedly missing the wider approach from Mourinho when it comes to giving the game-time to the younger prospects.

But, things have changed drastically now. With a manager in Ole Gunnar Solkskjaer, the Mancunian club have had seen progression in the right way. Ole Gunnar Solkskjaer, being a former player of the club, knows the true value of the illustrious academy and what the youths are like to the senior team. His time so far, at Old Trafford, has seen many talented prospects getting their debuts in a Manchester United senior shirt.

While the likes of Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams have come up as the standout performers from the 2019-20 campaign, the names of Teden Mengi, Hannibal Mejbri, and Dillon Hoogewerf are the ones expected to pocket some valuable game-time in their tanks during the upcoming season.

And if you somehow think this is not enough, Manchester United’s recruitment team is there to ease your burden with their overwhelming recruitment strategies that have already proved to be a reason of headache for some of the leading talent-developing sides across Europe.

According to the reports from MARCA, Manchester United have captured the signing of Atletico Madrid sensation Alejandro Garnacho, who has reportedly put pen to a bumper five-year deal at the Manchester-based club. What would be more intriguing news for Manchester United devotees is United have beat the heavyweights like Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid to the signature of the so-called wonderkid.

After United secured the services for Marc Jurado from Barcelona and Alvaro Carreras from Real Madrid earlier in the summer transfer window, the acquisition of Alejandro Garnacho, 16, is the third time United have signed someone from Spain this year.

Besides the youth team, the club has an eye to enhance the quality in the first team. And there would never be an easier way than adding some new faces to the roster. With Donny van de Beek already signed from Ajax, the Red Devils are understandably now looking favourites to seize the widely-anticipated move for Jadon Sancho. Should they confirm the signing of Jadon Sancho within the next few days, there is a possibility United might go for another name.
