This is a strange post given he has resisted us to this point in time and has given no hint we're the club for him.You think a 16 year old kid won’t be tempted to come despite seeing the likes of Greenwood, McTominay, Brandon Williams and James (and other yougsters) being given a first team spot infront of 80k people every week, in the Premier League, with a credible chance of trophies in the future? We are the team to join if you fancy yourself as a teenage sensation, wanting to play in the Premier League. Chelsea’s experiment is over and can now sign players again, Liverpool City and Spurs can’t really offer it. Arsenal perhaps.
This thing about him being 16 or 17 and therefore overawed etc. really needs to die a death, too, as he is clearly not, and his handlers are being sensibly pragmatic.
If you've got a pick of clubs, Manchester United, as we are now, is not necessarily the most desirable club to join for a number of reasons and this is the knock on effect of so many years of being, well, whatever you want to call it.
