Manchester United have made it a habit over the last several years to sign some of the most highly-rated youngsters from around the world. And the next one in that quickly growing list could be Slavia Prague’s Abdallah Sima.
Sima is still 19 years of age but he has already made quite an impression in both domestic and European competition. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 15 goals and provided 6 assists in 29 appearances across all competitions for the first-team this season. 4 of those goals and an assist have come in the Europa League.
Those are impressive numbers for any player, especially one who is still a teenager. As a result, he has already made his debut for the Senegal national team.
And as reported by Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are monitoring the Slavia Prague youngster.

Manchester United are being linked with Sima
While capable of playing all across the forward line, Sima has mostly operated as a right winger till now. Of course, that is a position where the Red Devils already signed Amad and Facundo Pellistri in the previous summer transfer window.
But owing to his impressive output in front of goal, there is a feeling that Sima could eventually develop into a striker and at 19 years of age, he has all the time in the world to do so.
If the club were able to sign the youngster, would he come directly into the first-team? Most probably not. Instead, he would be expected to go into the youth team similar to Amad or might even end up out on loan like Pellistri, who is currently at Alaves.
That is for the future though and it will all depend on whether the Red Devils can sign him. One thing is for sure, Sima is a very exciting talent and it is encouraging to see the club being linked with him.
