Man United’s future would be very bright if they beat Arsenal to land this 19-year-old Portuguese sensation in the summer

Manchester United opinion: Red Devils must go all out for Francisco Trincao

The Birmingham Live has reported that Manchester United are interested in a move for Braga wonderkid Francisco Trincao. The 19-year-old has made quite a reputation for himself at both youth and senior levels.

But the Red Devils are not the only horse in the race. The likes of Arsenal, Juventus and even Wolverhampton Wanderers have been linked with a move. Barely 19 years old, Trincao bears a striking resemblance to Suso and Jose Antonio Reyes, as the starlet embodies the best of both Spaniards.

Quick off the mark, versatile, with great attacking awareness and a fantastic left foot, the teenager is not shy to shoot from range. Furthermore, he is a powerful yet graceful dribbler and a tenacious defender. All these are qualities that Manchester United need but what they really do not need is another a-typical winger.

The Red Devils have more than their fair share of wingers in their ranks, but they really need someone who can push it to the limit. That’s exactly who Trincao is – a hard-worker.

It shows when the Portuguese starlet steps on the field, as he does his fair share both offensively and defensively. Capable of playing anywhere across the front-line, Trincao uses his versatility well and it further adds to his unpredictability. That combined with his spatial awareness in and around the box, makes him very dangerous.

Yet for a winger, the 19-year-old is surprisingly very lethal inside the box, using his ability to ghost in behind defenders, surprising them before calmly slotting one past the goalkeeper. That’s exactly why he would fit anywhere into Manchester United’s teamsheet.

Furthermore, Trincao’s ability to play anywhere across the front-line will also see the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford flourish. What could complicate things for Manchester United is the fact that they are not the only team in the race.

The likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Arsenal and Juventus too are in the race as mentioned above, with the starlet revealing that he would like to play one day for the Old Lady (Football Italia).
