On Tuesday, we carried a report from Tipsbladet, who explained Manchester United and Ajax ‘want’ to sign FC Nordsjælland star Kamaldeen Sulemana.
It was also stated Ajax head scout Henk Veldmate, along with sporting director Marc Overmars, travelled to Denmark to watch the 19-year-old in action against Copenhagen.
Later that day, claims made by Tipsbladet were backed up by De Telegraaf, as they stated the Dutch club hope to beat the Red Devils and others to sign the forward.
Sulemana has admitted he’s aware of Ajax’s interest in acquiring his services.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are closely following the Ghana international and this has been confirmed by FC Nordsjælland chairman Jan Laursen. He reveals the Premier League club’s officials have already watched the player in action for the Danish club.
“It’s been in the papers, and they [United] are one of those clubs that’s here sometimes, too. It’s probably one of those clubs that also follows him closely,” Laursen said, as quoted by Bold.dk.
The attacker’s contract runs down in 2024 and Bold.dk have slapped a valuation of 100m Danish kroner (€13.5m) on him. The Nordsjælland chief believes Sulemana’s suitors wouldn’t hesitate to pay a lot for securing the player’s signature.
“I have the feeling that there are some who will be happy, even if they have to pay a lot of money, but time will tell,” Laursen explained.
“There are many who follow him, and not everyone who would like to be here because of various restrictions. Of course, some of the heavyweights follow him closely.”
Manchester United are among those ‘heavyweights’ and whether or not they will take the next step to sign Sulemana remains to be seen.
