Swedish outlet Mitti this has a story about Johan Guadagno, who joined Manchester United this summer.
The goalkeeper had spent only six months at Swedish side Bromma, and now made the move to the Red Devils at the age of just 16.
Mitti recalls that Guadagno is the first player to make a move from Bromma to Manchester United since Bojan Djordjic, who signed for the Old Trafford side back in 1999.
Since Guadagno is still underage, he’s not authorised to speak to the media if not through Manchester United’s official channels. That’s why Mitti went to speak to a couple of people who know him very well.
One of them was Tommy Söderström, Bromma’s director who brought him to the club: “He came to us in December from Stocksund, and has since played with us until June. Then he went to them. Really good goalkeeper.”
Mitti also managed to speak to Guadagno’s mother, Johanna Ekmark. She says Manchester United was on the youngster’s dream shortlist.
“He was super happy of course, absolutely fantastic. It was one of the three clubs he felt he most wanted to be at.
“Right now he’s aiming to become a first option at the U18 level. They have several and he is the last in, and the youngest. But I think he will be able to do it. Then he aims to make his way all the way to the first team.”
The outlet also takes some quotes from Guadagno from the time before the move was made official. Back then he had spoken to Red Army Sweden.
“It was a little tough. But I knew it was the right decision,” he said.
He was then asked about where he aims to be in five years: “I see myself in the first team.”
