Another U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team player may soon be making the move to a storied English Premier League side, if reports are to be believed.
According to HITC Sport, Manchester United is reportedly leading the race to sign 19-year-old American midfielder Emerson Hyndman. The report states that Tottenham, West Ham United, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg have also shown interest in adding the Fulham midfielder, but the Red Devils are currently the frontrunners to land him.
“He looks to be on his way, we have been told of a number of clubs who want him and are offering big deals, but United look to be in the strongest position,” a source from Fulham allegedly told HITC.
Hyndman is eligible to leave Fulham on a free transfer this upcoming summer after club manager Slavisa Jokanovic insisted on not selling him during the winter transfer window. He has appeared in 10 games for the English Championship outfit during the 2015-16 season.
At the international level, Hyndman most recently appeared in CONCACAF Olympic qualification games for the U.S. U-23s, earning SBI Man of the Match honors on one occasion.
Recently, fellow U.S. U-23 player Matt Miazga left the New York Red Bulls to sign with Chelsea.
What do you think of this report? Would it be a good move for Hyndman to join Manchester United?Where should Hyndman sign?
