Manchester United in talks to sign talented striker in January – report

Manchester United Football Club will certainly be looking to make moves in the January transfer window, with Louis van Gaal looking to bring in some players who can guide his team to a title in the second half of the season.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are once again looking at talent, rather than proven quality. They say that the club is looking at bringing Nishan Burkhart, a 15-year old striker from FC Zurich.

The young man is thought to have plenty of pace, a real eye for goal and great ability on the ball, but landing his signature won’t be easy, as the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Southampton are all keen on the young man.

At the end of the day, it still feels as though we need proven quality rather than prospects, because he isn’t going to be ready for at least a few years and we need players now rather than in the future.
