Ten Hag's next target: Manchester United going after this talented 17 year old
The Red Devils already have their next transfer in mind and are planning a swoop come next summer
Manchester United have a new target in their sights: Youssoufa Moukoko. There are few forces in football that can resist the talents of Borussia Dortmunds' 17 year old striker, but even fewer that can resist the Red Devils' financial might, and plans are reportedly on the works to have them join together.
Moukoko has been a sensation for a long time now, as he bossed defences in the under 19 levels at just 15 years old with his big and powerful frame and great skill on the ball. Making his debut aged 16 and one day, he's since gone on to make 46 appearances so far for Dortmund.
While he struggled a bit to make the adjustment to the professional game, he's in fine form this season, with two goals and two assists in six Bundesliga games. With that tremendous amount of potential, many top European clubs are reportedly chasing him, but none more so than Manchester United, as per transfers experts website Calciomercato, who are reportedly planning a swoop come next summer.
This comes in the context of his now usual clashes with the Borussia Dortmund hieranchy, with the 17 year old asking for a massive wage increase and also a guarantee of starting games. It may very well that the German club decided the talented youngster isn't worth the hassle and decide to cash in on his enourmous potential sooner rather than later.
