Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been given reason to celebrate by news that they’ve agreed an exciting deal ahead of the summer.
The Manchester Evening News cite comments from the father of rising Switzerland star Nishan Burkart as confirming the 16-year-old will move to Manchester United after failing to agree a new deal with FC Zurich.
“We have decided to leave the club in the summer. Nishan switches to Manchester United. He just has different ideas, that’s what business is like.”
Another confirmation also came from a more official source, with FC Zurich president Ancilo Canepa confirming the teenage sensation is set for an exit.
“Nishan Burkart’s family have decided to move him to Manchester United. Therefore we have decided not to use the player. We are concerned with planning for the squad next season.”
Although relatively unknown to many fans, it’s an exciting transfer given the vast interest held in Burkart’s services as both Arsenal and Chelsea were also chasing the youngster.
