Man United enter race to sign Bilal El Khannouss

Man United have eyes on Morocco youngster, Bilal El Khannouss.

Manchester United Football Club are now being run by Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS. The Red Devils are hoping the Failsworth-born businessman will help them return to former glories, though it takes time.

First and foremost, it’s about rectifying old mistakes. In the transfer market, United have made far too many major blunders. They have to hit the reset button in that regard and take it back to basics.

As part of a transfer strategy revamp, United are now set to turn their focus on promising young talents, rather than seasoned players. That’s according to Football Transfers.

The result of that is a potential move to sign the talented 19-year-old attacking midfielder, Bilal El Khannouss. They will face competition in the race to sign the young Moroccan.


As part of a plan to secure a solid ‘foundation’ for the future, the youthful attacker El Khannouss is on the radar.

Currently playing for Belgian side Genk, El Khannouss is starting to attract major attention from top European clubs, with United and Liverpool ‘closely monitoring’ the teenager.

It’s always tough to gauge exactly how these younger players will develop, though in this case, you’d give El Khannouss an excellent chance at doing just that and becoming an elite player. He looks to have all the skills needed to play in that attacking-midfield role at a supremely high level.

The problem for the youngster? Bruno Fernandes exists. The man from Portugal has that number ten position on lock when he’s fit and El Khannouss may find it tough to break into the side.

In terms of transfer cost, around £25m should be enough to get the job done. No doubt Genk are hoping a bidding war ensues in the not too distant future.
