Judging by the interview he gave, it looks like we have a deal in place, 3rd visit also so seems like a positive sign, looks a brilliant prospect.He hasn't been going on trial to any other club. Won't be surprised if we have a deal in place for him. Looks ridiculously talented. Him and that noggie kid that we'll sign next season.
I can't wait until the English commentators are going to pronounce his nameThank you mate, the name rings a bell, maybe when we were linked with him. He looks very tidy on the ball, especially his close control and dribbling of the ball.
Not illegal but would be very risky for both parties. We might overpay and he breaks his leg or something. Or he might even play regularly for their first team before 18 and they end up having to sell him for peanuts to us.Any confirmation of that'd be nice too or even the pre-contracts are illegal? Meh I'd just create a new thread anyway later.
Barca already got Barry, so it makes sense that they're looking at Bellingham. Ajax have Gravenberch who kind of fill the same roles as one another. That would be a poor move from Bellingham.Barca and Ajax have both enquired about him. From a United perspective I hope we can come to a agreement for him.
Apparently United are looking for a new loan in the football league. Garner & Levitt are coming back soon, so I’d say there’s next to no chance Hamilton would feature for the first team.Ethan Hamilton recalled from loan. Not sure if it is as backup for our first team as we don't have many fit options, or cause he was not playing.
Birmingham midfielder Jude Bellingham is Manchester United’s next teenage target after pushing forward with a deal for Erling Haaland.
Haaland is wanted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a high-profile move but Bellingham has also been followed closely by United this season, with assistant manager Mike Phelan watching him against West Brom last weekend.
The 16-year-old midfielder has also been tracked by United’s Premier League rivals and Bundesliga clubs after emerging as a first-team regular this season.
Is anything confirmed for him yet?
United's representatives have been over to Norway again last week to discuss Hansen-Aaroen
United visit again in Tromsø: TIL dreams of cooperation with the big club
On the same day that Ole Gunnar Solskjær's star gallery plays match in Norway, the club has been touring in northern Norway.
The Manchester United representative gets in the car of TIL's sports manager Svein-Morten Johansen to head to the airport after meetings at Alfheim last fall. On Tuesday, United was back at Alfheim.
Earlier this year, iTromsø told that 14-year-old TIL player Isak Hansen-Aarøen has signed for Manchester United. The plan is to stay at Alfheim until he is 16, and then move on to the academy in England.
Aarøen, who turns 15 later in September, has already trained with TIL's A-team, and played senior football for TIL 2 in 2019. He is this week traveling in Belgium where the club's 16-year-olds play training matches.
Following up on the island of Aarø is one of the reasons why United once again chose to travel to Tromsø. United was in town in October to talk to the club and player. And both the TO and the 14-year-old have been to Manchester several times over the past year.
That the club is back in Tromsø shows that they want to have control over what kind of everyday life the future Manchester United player will have next year.
Isak Hansen Aarøen played from the start for TIL 2 against LSK 2 earlier this summer.
- Made a plan for the island
On May 16, the TIL leadership even came out with the news that they had agreed with United on a deal for the young boy. An agreement that, if everything flaps in the future of the island, could end up with a double digit number of NOK million on account.
Sports manager Svein-Morten Johansen does not want to comment on Tuesday's visit, but told in May that the dialogue is good with the big club.
"We have made a plan with them, and we will pay him in the same way as the professional contracts we have for such a young player," Johansen told iTromsø on May 16.
A conversation around the breakfast table got Manchester United to Oslo
In addition to the cooperation on Aarøen, Johansen opened the way for the links between the clubs to develop in the long term.
- We have managed to make contact with such a big club, especially when Isaac is here. Then there are other things in the deal. During that period, we can establish relationships with key people there, which may strengthen a relationship in the future, Johansen said at the time.
After it is known to iTromsø, an opportunity TO in the long term will foresee is that the club can borrow players from the United system. Of course, this comes in addition to cooperation in other areas.
English clubs have had such agreements with several Norwegian top teams. Most famous is perhaps the Strømsgodset's agreement with Manchester City, which on several occasions sent players to Norway.
TIL has previously had an agreement with English Fulham, where Josh Pritchard was brought to Tromsø. It did not end with any success at that time, but has not intimidated TO from looking at future opportunities when building a relationship with United.
