Manchester United have been monitoring Athletic Bilbao star Iker Muniain for quite a long time now. Lets have a closer look on the player,
Young But Experienced
Muniain is only 20 year old but has been in the Bilbao’s first team for nearly four years now. He can give goosebumps to any opponent defenders with his jet speed close dribbles and ball control. Only negative side is he is not a natural goal scorer.
Muniain would offer something entirely unique to United’s attack. The last time when United bought a player with bagful of tricks and dribbles, it was none other than Cristiano Ronaldo himself (ignore Nani). Iker Muniain has those raw materials and with the guidance of SAF, he can develop in to a world-class player. His performance against United in the Europa League last year proves that he can play well at any level.
Athletic Bilbao are known for their strict negotiations in the transfer market. They never sell their players for cheap money. According to the reports, United need to spend atleast 20 million pounds to sign the trickster. But that will a real good business if United can turn him into next CR7.
