After a number of articles from various sources all agreeing on the interest, local newspaper Le Courrier Picard believe Noam Emeran will finally be a Manchester United player by the end of the month.
The 16-year-old, currently with Amiens in Ligue 1, is expected to cost the Red Devils somewhere between €80k – €100k.
Speaking to the newspaper, the youngster explained that after talks with his family, moving to Old Trafford ‘feels like the best choice’, but that it was now ‘up to him’ to reach his dreams and his goals.
Furthermore, the young forward revealed Anthony Martial, a fan favourite at Manchester United, was one of the players he tried to model his game on, along with Neymar and Leroy Sané.
No specific date is given for when Emeran will join the Red Devils, but fans will take some joy in knowing he turned down clubs such as Juventus or their next Champions League opponents, Paris Saint-Germain, to play for the Premier League side.
