Manchester United are among various clubs in the mix to sign Club Atlético Colón star Facundo Farías.

The 19-year-old spent two seasons with the Argentine side’s youth system before he was promoted to the senior team in 2019. His ‘explosion’ there has caught the attention of clubs in South America and Europe.

From England, Manchester United are the club who have shown ‘most interest’ in the versatile attacker.

That’s according to AS, who go on to state the Red Devils have joined AS Roma, Sassuolo and Udinese. They further add that José Mourinho’s side are the ‘most interested’ club from Serie A. FC Porto and Paris Saint-Germain are also tagged in the report.

Operating mainly as a striker, he scored five goals and seven assists in all competitions in 2021. Farías has been used across all positions up front and also in the attacking midfield position this year, managing two goals from 16 matches.

It’s claimed that clubs in Europe view the teenager as ‘rough diamond’ due to his profile, qualities and age. River Plate and Boca Juniors have failed in attempts to sign the young Argentine.

AS state that ‘now everything seems to indicate’ that Farías ‘will pack his bags’ to leave Colón and make a switch to Europe, with Italy, France and England being ‘more than appetising destinations’.
