With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm, Manchester United’s transfer strategy has become one even more focused on youth.
Solskjaer wants the club to secure the next young talent the world over, something that we saw with the signings of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer.
Such a strategy requires them to scout talent the world over, and it seems this week they’re taking a look at South American talent.
Record report that Manchester United are one of several clubs who are in Spain, specifically Gran Canaria, to watch the Tenerife Tournament.
The event has been set up to help teams, in this case, Brazil, Chile, Argentina and USA, to prepare for the 2020 CONMEBOL Pre-Olympic Tournament.
Several big teams have all turned up to rule their eye over the young players on show and Manchester United are one of them.
The newspaper makes no mention of whether United are there to scout any player in particular, although there’s likely to be plenty on offer with Brazil and Argentine both there.
They suggest that’s probably why everyone is there. Accreditation for the tournament was free, so it seems the big clubs couldn’t resist the offer.
