Man United beating Man City to land this 16-year-old Dutch prodigy would boost their youth ranks massively

Man Utd Opinion: Should United sign Zamani?

According to a report from Daily Mail, Manchester United target Hossein Zamani has expressed his desire for new challenges away from Ajax, as fellow Premier League clubs Manchester City and Leicester City circle around.

The 16-year-old Dutch prodigy is one of the most promising juggernauts in Europe, with AC Milan and Everton are also keeping tabs on him (h/t Daily Mail). 

Zamani had a great season in the Eredivisie U17, bagging a total of six goals and an assist. He also earned a cap for Netherlands’ U15 team, making his debut in 2017. Primarily a winger on the left flank, Zamani can also play as a natural winger.

He normally prefers a traditional yet no-nonsense way of playing rather than merely showing off his flamboyance.

Why should United sign Zamani?

Zamani is a precious talent and the Red Devils shouldn’t hesitate to make a move on him. Even though he is expected to join the reserves side at first, Zamani could see the light of the day as a senior team player through quick progression.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is a big admirer of young talents, is in the middle of rebuilding the squad. The Norwegian manager has made his intentions clear with two young signings, namely Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Regardless, other reinforcements are needed and the wing department certainly needs attention. After all, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial were often sluggish in the previous campaign.

With Welsh winger James expected to fill the left-wing void, the question still remains on the other side. Lingard, 26, has failed to deliver his full potential over a long course and an alternative for the England international has to be sorted ahead of next season.

Final Verdict

The Red Devils were able to provide opportunities for most of the reserves talents in the later period of the previous season. Angel Gomes and Scott McTominay enjoyed quite a bit of attention that way.

And their tradition of paving way for young talents should continue with signing Zamani.
