Euro Paper Talk: Man Utd chase Euro 2020 teen as second deal is agreed
Manchester United are readying a move for a Euro 2020 headline-maker and have already agreed another deal for a France star, Chelsea are ready to move on Hakim Ziyech, while Tuesday’s Euro Paper Talk has details of an exciting transfer plan at Arsenal for a former Liverpool favourite.
KOZLOWSKI CHASED BY MAN UTD
Manchester United are set to rival a host of big-name European giants to sign Poland record-breaker Kacper Kozlowski, according to reports.
The 17-year-old beat Jude Bellingham’s six-day old record to become the youngest ever player to feature at the European Championships. And he did not disappoint, with Kozlowski coming in for praise from his manager and teammates.
Kozlowski currently plays for Pogon Szczecin in his homeland. However, his stay there looks set to be brief with United readying an approach, as per Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Italian paper reports that the Red Devils have already made advances and are looking to ‘nurture his talent at Old Trafford’.
United though, they face competition with Cagliari and Juventus also set to make moves.
However, it seems the trio may miss out with Borussia Dortmund having also made a move. As per the article, the player is enticed by a move to the Bundesliga side, thanks to Robert Lewandowski, who made his name at the Westfalenstadion.
Nonetheless, United cannot be ruled out the race and could yet land the impressive teenage star.
It appears to be better news for United, however, as far as Raphael Varane is concerned.
United are reportedly ‘strong options’ for the Real Madrid defender, who has just a year left on his deal.
