Who is this 19-year-old prodigy on Man United’s radar? The Turkish Lionel Messi?

Manchester United opinion – Scout report on Abdulkadir Omur

According to a report in the Sun, Premier League giants Manchester United have sent scouts to watch young Trabzonspor winger Abdulkadir Omur, who is touted as “the Turkish Lionel Messi.”

The 19-year-old has been in great form this season, leading his club to fourth in the table. His performances have attracted interest from Liverpool and French side Lille as well (h/t Sun).

However, United look the most likely to make an offer for the winger in the coming summer transfer window (h/t Sun). As per the report, Trabzonspor chairman even confirmed that the Red Devils scouts were present at their game against Kayserispor to watch the teenager on display (h/t Sun).

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking to press the reset button and overhaul his squad, Omur could be the right man to start the signing process. Without further ado, let’s take an in-depth look about the player in a detailed scout report:

Scout Report – Abdulkadir Omur

Omur is a prodigious young talent who operates on the right wing more often than not. He is a Trabzonspor product from the youth academy and now a star for the first-team.

In 26 league appearances this season, 19-year-old has managed to score four goals and supply eight assists, which are fine returns.

In terms of his attributes, the Turkish U-21 international possesses pace and trickery of the highest quality to threaten defenders in wide areas. At such a tender age, he makes the right decisions in the final third.

Omur has the capability of either holding the width or cut inside to become an extra attacker in the central area. Other than his qualities, the 19-year-old’s presence of mind to read the game is right up there.

All in all, we can see why Manchester United are scouting the teenager off late. They lack a player who can be direct in wide areas, take defenders on and make goal-bound contributions. Omur is that man to a larger extent.

Even though the Turkish youth prodigy is still just 19, he has the propensities to make it to the Red Devils squad and become a star man for them.
