According to SportBild, relayed by Fussball.News, Manchester United missed out on the signing of young midfielder Kelvin Ofori this summer.

The midfielder joined Fortuna Dusseldorf this summer on a free transfer from Ghanian club Right to Dream. However, it seems Old Trafford could have been his next destination at one point.

SportBild report that United were keen on Ofori and they made a bid to take him to Old Trafford. The plan was to sign him and then immediately loan him out to Molde.

As part of United hiring Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the two clubs agreed to a cooperation, and sending players like Ofori to the Norwegian club was part of it.

They planned to do this without informing Ofori and his representatives, though, and they turned the move down.

His agency, Stellar Football, thought it would be better to send Ofori to a ‘smaller club in a top league’ and thus moved him to Fortuna Düsseldorf instead.

He’s since made a flying start at the German club, scoring on his debut in the DFB-Pokal victory over FC 08 Villingen over the weekend.
