Man United open talks for Atletico target Thiago Almada

Manchester United have opened talks to sign Argentina under-20 winger Thiago Almada from Velez Sarsfield.

A player linked with neighbours Manchester City, Inter, and most recently Atletico Madrid, the 19-year-old is an exciting prospect.

Atletico have been getting closer to a deal, but their finances are an issue with Almada having a €22m clause.

Man United are one of the world’s richest clubs, but Tuttomercatoweb states that even they want to renegotiate his clause. The Coronavirus is already having a tangible impact on the transfer market, with player values dropping.

United are taking major steps to sign Almada, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side hoping to reach an agreement at €18m.

Any club wanting to add the Argentine to their squad will want to do quickly, with his clause rising to €25m in August.

United have been adding good young talent to their squad in recent times, with Bruno Fernandes, Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka all positive buys.

Could the latest sensation out of Argentina, Thiago Almada, be the next to arrive at Old Trafford?
