Manchester United submit bid for Thiago Almada as Leeds enter the race

A report by Todofichajes (h/t Leeds Live) states that Manchester United have submitted a bid for Thiago Almada with a summer transfer in mind.

The talented Argentina U-20 international earlier attracted the interest of clubs in England as well as Spain. Arsenal, Manchester City, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona were all linked with a move.

However, United have taken a big step forward in order to seal a potential summer transfer. Almada could move to Europe at the end of the 2020/21 season after impressing in Argentina with Velez Sarsfield. (h/t LeedsLive)

Manchester United lead the race to sign Velez Sarsfield youngster Thiago Almada in the summer transfer window.

And United have submitted a £14.1million bid for the 19-year-old winger. The report also states that the Red Devils have come to a verbal agreement for a summer transfer.

It seems as if United have developed a thing for signing young wingers from abroad in recent years. 

Almada has racked up impressive numbers over in Argentina and it is not a surprise that he was linked with a host of clubs.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not have any shortage of left-wingers currently. Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood are all capable of playing down the left-hand side.
