Sporting Lisbon youngster Atawu Issahaku tipped for Manchester United move – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United have been linked with Sporting Lisbon’s teenage sensation Atawu Issahaku.

The 18-year-old Ghanaian has already been capped 13 times for his country and is scheduled to take part in the World Cup in Qatar next month.

A quick, left-footed attacker with a thunderous shot, Issahaku is a fantastic dribbler who thrives cutting from the right side or playing off a leader.

Sporting have been making it easy on the team this term, with the teenager coming off the bench five times in the league so far.

Given his international successes, it won’t be long before he becomes a key figure for the Portuguese giants.

They certainly expect him to become one, judging by the £52m release clause included in Issahaku’s contract.

Issahaku only signed for Sporting in the summer, with the Portuguese side turning down interest from Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Leverkusen to sign the youngster from Ghanaian outfit Steadfast.

Liverpool were also rumored to be interested in the promising striker.

However, according to journalist Ed Aarons, Manchester United is the most likely next step for the prodigious talent.

Speaking to GiveMeSport, the Guardian writer responded to questions about the Ghanaian star’s next destination, saying: “I think Manchester United, eventually, in that role of Bruno Fernandes right behind the striker, scoring a lot of goals.” .

Aarons sees the wunderkind as a phenomenal talent, adding:

“He had an unbelievable record in the Ghanaian league. He was playing men’s soccer very young and he scored a lot of goals in that position of 10. He is a real name to watch.”

While he is one for the future, Issahaku could end up being a prime target for the Red Devils.

A strong showing in Qatar may even accelerate that interest.
