Manchester United eyeing move for Thiago Almada

Manchester United are reportedly considering an approach for Velez Sarsfield wonderkid Thiago Almada.

The 19-year-old attacker has contributed 12 goals and four assists in 50 appearances for his current club, and a number of European heavyweights are believed to be interested in his services.

Manchester City, Valencia and Ajax are said to be admirers, but according to Tuttomercatoweb, Man United will also join the race for the teenager in 2021.

The Argentine still has two and a half years left to run on his existing contract, though, putting El Fortin in a strong position when it comes to negotiations.

Almada, who came through the youth ranks at Velez, can also play from either flank which gives him exceptionally offensive versatility.
