Manchester United eye swoop for talented 14 y/o at Leeds

Manchester United and Man City are believed to be eyeing up the prospect of signing talented 14-year-old Leeds wonderkid Finley Gorman.

Gorman is seen as a bright talent for the future and the Daily Mail believe his potential has attracted the attention of United and City.

And we all know that if United and City are interested, they are probably a list of other Premier League clubs knocking on the door, which is mad considering this kid is just 14.

Gorman could soon have a big decision to make on his future, even if he decides to stay at Leeds for his development.

That could be a quicker path into first-team football, but his parents can be made aware of United’s record at academy level.

You don’t see many homegrown players come through at City and that is a factor he should consider.

United should be going out to find the best young talents in the UK to strengthen their academy every summer. Few clubs can compete with us on that front but I don’t feel that we fully that advantage of it.
