Manchester United are being linked with a move to sign Benfica youngster Cher Ndour in the January transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Tutto Salernitana who claim that Man United face competition from Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus for the talented 18-year-old’s signature.
Ndour’s current deal with Benfica expires in the summer of 2023, so United boss Ten Hag could bring him to Old Trafford for a bargain fee in January, or wait until the end of the season to pick him up for absolutely nothing.
Manchester United chasing Cher Ndour deal
United are believed to be battling it out with PSG and Juventus for the talented Benfica starlet.
Standing at 6ft 3in tall, the teenager is an absolute unit already, in spite of his tender years. He is the youngster ever player to have represented Benfica B. At 16 years and 279 days, Ndour beat the record previously held by João Félix (16 years and 312 days).
Central midfield is definitely an area where Ten Hag will want to strengthen over the course of the next 12 months or so. Sure, he recently signed Casemiro, but he will be 31 in February, and a long-term successor to the Brazilian will be an absolute must.
I believe that Cher Ndour will be a real star of the future, and he undoubtedly will be a major player for Manchester United, if Ten Hag wins the race for his signature
