Report: Man United scouted £7m wonderkid this week, director admits ‘we will sell’

Earlier this week, a scouting director with one of the most coveted young midfielders on the market in his ranks confirmed that Liverpool had become regular visitors to his side’s homely, 18,000 capacity stadium.

“Liverpool have been on site and scouted. Oh my god, yes. It’s them all the time,” he tells Expressen.

Clearly, there is a good reason for the Premier League giants to send their scouts over 600 miles north to Scandinavia. Who knows, it might well be the same reason why Manchester United and Bayern Munich had representatives on hand to watch IFK Gothenburg defeat Mjallby 1-0 on Tuesday night.

In fact, it most probably is.

Manchester United wanted Malik Yalcouye this week

Bayern and United were present midweek, according to Expressen. In contrast to Larsson, who remained reticent to confirm or deny whether Liverpool’s affections are directed towards Malick Yalcouye, the Swedish magazine appears to be a little more forthright and less opaque.

They claim that Man United and the German powerhouses were in Gothenberg in order to control Yalcouye, who is eighteen years old. FC Copenhagen is eager to add another player to a collection that is led by Roony Bardghji.

FC Copenhagen has brought the best young talent in Scandinavia to the Danish capital. There was also Bologna at the Gamla Ullevi on Tuesday, a team that qualified for the Champions League for the first time but is also grieving the loss of its talisman, head coach Thiago Motta.

Yalcouye may only be a teenager. He may only have made his senior league debut in April. His impact at IFK, however, feels similar to that of Kobbie Mainoo when his Yalcouye’s fellow teenager belatedly established himself at the heart of Man United’s engine room before Christmas.
