Manchester United could possibly miss out on signing Kamaldeen Sulemana. As reported by Football Insider, Ajax have moved ahead of the Red Devils in the transfer race for the youngster and are now in the driving seat.
Other clubs like Liverpool and Rennes have been linked with Sulemana recently as well. The Ghana international has caught the eye of clubs from all over Europe after scoring 10 and assisting 8 last season in 30 appearances across all competitions for Nordsjaelland according to stats from Transfermarkt.
One of the reasons that the Dutch champions are believed to be ahead in the transfer race now is because of the personal attention that Marc Overmars, the current director of football at Ajax, is giving to the deal.
Now, it remains to be seen what the Red Devils will do, as they were once considered to be the favourites for Sulemana’s signature.

Manchester United have fallen behind in the transfer race for Sulemana
Manchester United are believed to be very interested in the Ghana international. But as reported by Football Insider, Ajax will not need to secure a work permit for Sulemana, which could be a big factor in them being ahead in the transfer race at the moment. Sulemana needs to make one more competitive appearance for the Ghana national team, or the Danish league needs to climb one place in the UEFA co-efficients rankings, for the 19-year-old to have enough points to gain a work permit in England.
Of course, that could end up changing things in the transfer race. As reported by B. T., there is no transfer bid right now for the youngster.
The Red Devils have made it a habit in recent years of signing some of the most highly-rated youngsters from around the world. Sulemana is certainly one of them right now. Thus, missing out on him would be seen as a blow for the club, if that does end up happening.
