Manchester United is undergoing a massive shake-up in the hands of Solskjær, and their lastest accomplishment is securing Real Zaragoza’s gifted winger Mateo Mejia, who has been a target for the big European clubs for the last year.
The Devils have agreed the £600,000 deal made by Zaragoza to bring the 16-year old to Old Trafford, beating out competitions from Premier League rivals and La Liga heavyweights.
The Spanish teenager, who is versatile both out wide and in center forward positions, has scored over 50 goals for the Spanish club’s youth team last season.
Mejia will join the United’s youth academy, and move upto under-23 squads before Solskjær provides him the first team call-up, as the right flank is weaker since former clubcaptain Antonio Valencia has recently left The Theatre of Dreams.
United were in the market for a winger this transfer window, targeting Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, but the deal got scuffed as the club couldn’t secure a Champions League finish in the league table.
Signing the 21-year old Welsh sensation Daniel James still remains United’s only addition to the team so far this summer window, although Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka is likely to have his medical test this week ahead of his £55 million transfer from Selhurst Park.
Links with Leicester City’s Harry Maguire and Sporting CP’s Bruno Fernandes are rumoured to be in the works.
