With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer out to build Man United’s youth and first-team squad this summer, he could be about to sign a bargain.
It looks like Mateo Mejia could be the next Old Trafford arrival. He is only 16 years old but has built up a reputation of being a goal scorer at Zaragoza. If the signing goes ahead, the transfer fee that’s apparently set in stone is only £600,000. Mejia has had interest from not only English teams, but La Liga teams too and United seem to have beaten everyone to the youngster.
The Spanish wonder-kid will be hoping to prove his potential in the Red Devil’s youth squad first of all, but he could easily and quickly break into the first team. This will make Mejia the second summer signing before the new season starts.
With United beating potential other clubs in signing the 16-year-old, they could have an exciting investment on their hands. With the goal scorer being so young, United could now build him up to be a great player, and the other teams who missed out on signing him for such a good fee will get a chance to see him develop and see how he turns out.
Imagine if he becomes a great member of the United team, there’s a chance that he could become worth a lot more than what Solskjær agreed for him.
