Man Utd watching progress of 17-year-old Norrkoping rising star


Manchester United are reportedly among ‘many’ European teams keeping close tabs on Icelandic midfield sensation Isak Bergmann Johannesson, according to a recent report.

The 17-year-old attracted interest from multiple teams across the continent in last summer’s transfer market.

But in spite of Liverpool supposedly showing interest, the ace confirmed his dream to line up for the Red Devils.

He currently plies his trade for Swedish club Norkroping in the country’s first division. Isak has made one appearance thus far this season, which came with an 80-minute stint on Sunday.

Nevertheless, Johannesson has already made his senior debut for his country’s national team and continues to attract potential suitors.

FC Inter News reports that Inter have joined the list of outfits watching the player intently.

Indeed, the source says that I Nerazzurri scouts have surveyed the teen on several occasions this term and will continue to keep tabs on his progress.

Their league rivals Juventus are also supposedly among the clubs showing initial interest in a deal.

The midfielder’s described admiration for the PL giants comes from the fact that he was born in England.

He is the son of former Wolves and Leicester star Johannes Karl Gudjonsson.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils’ interest comes amid their recent change in transfer policy to target the world’s best young talents.

They have brought in teenagers Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo in recent months, both of whom have earned rave reviews from managers.

As such, adding Isak to the mix could prove another coup for United.
