Player’s agent confirms talks with Man United over transfer of highly-rated attacker
Manchester United appear to have held talks about the possible acquisition of one of Europe’s most promising youngsters according to the player’s agent.
The Red Devils – especially during the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson – have been renowned for grooming some of the best youth players in the game into stars.
Reports from a couple of days ago suggested that United had reached an agreement with Benfica over their exciting youngster Umaro Embalo.
The highly-rated teenager was reportedly made available to be signed by the Red Devils with the transfer expected to be completed in January.
And in an interview with an outlet called A Bola, Embalo’s agent has revealed that talks were indeed held with the Old Trafford club over the attacker.
“Nothing is done, and the conversation, nobody communicated anything to me, nor to the parents. He has interest from several clubs, because he is an asset of Benfica and has gone down this route well.” he said
“I can say that all the great clubs in Europe have already asked for information about Umaro, from Germany, England, Spain, France.
“If he’s going to Manchester is something that I don’t know at all, but it’s true that we have already met with Benfica and Manchester, there is no agreement, but there are conversations.”http://www.fanchesterunited.com/players-agent-confirms-talks-man-united-possible-transfer-highly-rated-attacker/
