Manchester United have already amassed an army of special talents that have age firmly on their side. 

Academy product Mason Greenwood and new signing Amad Diallo, who have already impressed, spring to mind, with a combined age of just 37.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t seem to show signs of relenting on his faith in the youngsters, either, with the club now set to land another 19-year-old dynamo.

Football Insider report that the Old Trafford club are going to beat Dutch giants Ajax to the signing of FC Nordsjaelland attacker Kamaldeen Sulemana, after talks this week.

The report details that a United delegation travelled to Denmark to hold talks with representatives of the teenage Ghanaian international – who has 14 goals in 41 appearances for his current side and can operate as a winger and striker.

Ajax reportedly submitted a £12m package to prise the youngster away, while United are prepared to match a £15m valuation to land him ahead of the Dutch side.

There is still some deliberation to be had though, as, under the new post-Brexit transfer rules, Sulemana does not have enough points to gain a work permit.

Having been capped twice already for his country, that will change if the attacker makes one more competitive appearance for Ghana or if the Danish league climbs one place in the Uefa coefficient rankings.

Ghana are set to play against Morocco on June 8 and, if Sulemana features, that could lift one of the restrictions for his signature.

The 20-times English champions were recently beaten by the Dutch Eredivisie champions to the signing of another Ghanian youngster, Mohammed Kudus, last year – and will look to avoid a repeat of the same events.

With United assembling an arsenal of youth and exuberance to throw at opposition teams – could Ghana’s Sulemana be one that breaks through and stands out as a star in the Theatre of Dreams?
