MEN claim the Old Trafford outfit are close to hiring the services of Eagles attacker, Samuel Lusale.

In the last campaign, the 16-year-old winger made seven appearances for the London club in the U-18 Premier League.

Moreover, he also featured in the FA Youth Cup against Hull City in the first round. The teenager is yet to open his account for Palace.

Still, Lusale is rated very highly by his representatives, Roc Nation, who praise the player and state (via MEN):

“(Lusale is) a quick, dynamic winger who is regarded as one of the most exciting attacking players in the UK at under-16 level.”

He can effectively play on either flank and has the pace to trouble the opponents.

Back in May, the Slovakian youngster featured in all three group games for his nation’s U-17 team at the European Championships.

The Slovaks finished bottom of their group that had Italy, Poland and Sweden, conceded six goals and failed to find the net even once.

United do need to invest in youngsters, who give their all to the team. Last season, two of our best players were Kobbie Mainoo and Alejandro Garnacho, who were promoted from the academy.

In your view, should Man Utd secure the signing of Samuel Lusale?
