Last night, we covered a report (via Football Insider) claiming that Manchester United are close to Joe Hugill and have agreed personal terms with the teenage forward.
More recently, The Mail have revealed that now Man Utd have even agreed a fee to hire his services from Sunderland.
The famous British source have reported that the Red Devils have agreed a deal worth £250,000 with The Black Cats to secure the signing of the 16-year-old striker.
It is stated that the medical is still pending and the completion of the transfer is going to be delayed because of lock-down restrictions.
The youngster scored impressed for Sunderland’s U-18 team this term and soon got promoted to the U-23 side. In his Premier League 2 debut, he scored a brace vs West Ham United.
Even Tottenham Hotspur were interested in signing the talented forward but the delay due to coronavirus outbreak halted the progress of the north Londoners. Fortunately, the pandemic did not stop the advances of the Red Devils, who gained advantage over Spurs to agree a fee for the striker.
Let’s hope that we would be able to sign all of our key targets in the summer to improve the squad for next season.
