Manchester United to hold talks with Ghanian wonderkid Kamaldeen Sulemana

According to Football Insider, Manchester United are set to hold talks in Denmark about signing FC Nordsjaelland wonderkid Kamaldeen Sulemana.

The 19-year-old has been garnering much interest thanks to his excellent performances for Norsjaelland. He has made 28 appearances for them this season scoring ten goals and assisting seven more. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Capable of playing anywhere along the frontline, the youngster is making waves with his performances. A number of top teams are keen on him and are keeping a close watch.

United appear to be keen to steal a march on proceedings. A delegation from the club are already en route to Denmark and hope to negotiate a deal with Norsjaelland for the player.

The Red Devils will however face much competition from Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam. Sulemana is tipped to become the most successful footballer from Ghana since former Chelsea star Michael Essien.

Ajax failed with a £10m offer for the player in January. Undaunted, they are ready to up the ante this summer. United could effectively steal a march if talks go well.

According to the report, an offer of £15million should swing the pendulum in United’s favour. Given his potential, United shouldn’t have a problem paying it for the Ghanian.

There is however one drawback as the youngster lacks enough points to be awarded a work permit. It can however change if the Danish top-flight moves up one spot in the UEFA coefficients or if Sulemana makes another senior appearance for Ghana.

The Red Devils expect the player’s value to only increase in the months to come. Grabbing him now for just £15m would be an astute piece of business.
