Manchester United Targets To Sign A Swedish Star Player
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho checked up on Sweden’s RB Leipzig winger Emil Forsberg on Friday.
The 26-year-old was man of the match as Sweden beat Italy 1-0 in the first leg of their World Cup play-off.
Forsberg played an intricate role in Leipzig’s breakthrough into the Europe, featuring in 30 of their Bundesliga games last season, on their way to finishing second above Borussia Dortmund.
The Champions League debutants, who were founded only eight years ago in 2009, have proved they are far from a one-hit wonder having continued their form both domestically – where they are second again – and in Europe.
Their success has intrigued the majority of Europe’s elite, with Liverpool already swooping for highly-rated midfielder Naby Keita, and Mourinho is keen to bring in additional wide reinforcements.
Meanwhile, Ander Herrera will reject advances from Atletico Madrid, with the Spaniard desiring to stay at Old Trafford and United are in talks to extend his deal.
