The Man Utd fans in the Transfer are keen for Jose Mourinho to continue to improve the Red Devils’ first team…
The Red Devils have undergone quite the revamp under the manager, with a number of players departing the club in exchange for fresher, younger talent. Indeed, just as the Transfer Tavern has seen a major change in decor over the last few years, so has the Man Utd first team.
Big players like Wayne Rooney have moved on, only to be upgraded with players like Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba.
Indeed, Jose Mourinho is clearly focusing his attention on building for the future, and that may help to explain why the Red Devils are said to be keen on one of Europe’s most talented young players.
According to Leggo Sport, Man Utd had scouts in attendance over the weekend to watch Serie A star Lorenzo Pellegrini in action. He currently plays for Roma, and he featured as the Italian side beat AC Milan 2-0.
Man Utd are said to be long-term admirers of the player, and it’s easy to see why. The £10.8m-rated, according to Transfer Markt, midfielder was one of the stars of the show at the weekend, picking up a crucial assist as his side impressed against Milan.
Excellent with the ball at his feet, Pellegrini’s passing is a sight to behold, whilst his goal threat and technical ability are also second to none.
At 21-years-old, he’s clearly a player for the future, but if his recent form is anything to go by, he’s every bit a player for the present too. The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are impressed.
Pellegrini is clearly a top young talent, and by the time Man Utd are able to make their move – either in January or over the summer – we’ll be able to get a much clearer look at what he can do.
He’s still very raw, but he has taken Serie A by storm, and he looks destined to develop significantly as the season progresses and he secures his spot in the first team.
Jose Mourinho is clearly favouriting young talent at present, and so it’s no surprise that he’s keen.
