Manchester United are looking unlikely to bring any big name players into Old Trafford this January, but Louis van Gaal clearly hasn’t given up on signing younger talents that he’ll have to nurture and develop to turn into world class players.
The latest player linked with a move to Old Trafford is AS Roma’s talented winger, Mirko Antonucci. The 16-year old signed his first professional contract earlier this year, and is regarded as one of the hottest talents in Italy at this point in time.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Manchester United and Liverpool have both made enquiries regarding the starlet, who’s contract expires in 2017.
At this point in time you feel as though Manchester United need proven quality rather than hot prospects. Despite how talented he is, there is no guarantee that Antonucci will fulfil his potential, and those are risks that Louis van Gaal shouldn’t really be taking at this point in time.
