Manchester United are chasing highly rated Benfica youngster Umaro Embalo but the teenager will only be available for a huge fee – according to reports from the Manchester Evening News.
Umaro Embalo is one of the most highly rated youngsters in European football at the moment, with many already regarding the teen to become the real deal even at such a young age.
This huge potential means there are many suitors for the forward and one of those are Premier League giants Manchester United, who are currently plotting a January move for the attacker.
However despite such interest, landing Embalo will not come easy for United as his club Benfica have attached a massive asking price of £16million – which is certainly a lot for a 16-year-old.
This ridiculous asking price is believed to be due to the surge in interest for the teenager and while United can afford the fee, it will be interesting to see if the Red Devils will be ready to take such a huge leap for the unproven youngster.
Embalo certainly has huge potential and if indeed United are able to sign him, he could prove to be a very good signing for the future.
