Man Utd could confirm a new signing as early as this month!

Manchester United could confirm their first winter signing before the transfer window even opens, according to the Daily Mirror. Louis van Gaal’s men have a ‘great chance’ of signing young starlet Martin Odegaard. It is thought that Real Madrid and Man Utd are the players preferred destinations, despite him training with Liverpool last week.

Odegaard will make his decision when he turns 16, and his sixteenth birthday is in just ten days time so it is believed that he’ll confirm his new club before Christmas. The Stromgodset man already has a five-year contract on the table from Real Madrid, but United still stand a chance of landing the Norwegian, after impressing him with a tour of the facilities and Old Trafford.

Big things are expected of the 15-year old, but its always tough to tell whether he will go on to become that player we all expect, or whether he’ll flop. At that age there is still an awful lot of developing to do, and sometimes youngsters just don’t kick on to that next level. Its a huge gamble, but its one that is definitely worth taking.
