According to several reports, Man Utd have managed to fight off interest from both Arsenal and Chelsea and reach an agreement to buy a Watford talent earmarked for greatness.
This summer, news at Old Trafford will focus on the arrivals and departures from the Man Utd first-team roster. The team needs a new goalie, center defender, midfielder, and striker.
A certain amount of purging is anticipated in terms of departures, and according to the Daily Mail, United are only ready to pay £45 million for struggling winger Jadon Sancho.
That will undoubtedly inform Tottenham, who have expressed interest, despite the fact that today’s update concerns a player who is more focused on the future than the present.
Indeed, back in April, TEAMtalk exclusively reported that Manchester United were considering Watford standouts Harry Amass and Adrian Blake.
Blake, 17, left Manchester United on June 12 after joining Dutch team Utrecht. However, Amass has reportedly been captured by United, according to both Fabrizio Romano and the Manchester Evening News.
The 16-year-old plays for Watford, but he has previously played for England at the Under-16 level.
Amass‘ inclusion on Watford’s bench for their FA Cup match against Reading back on January 7 is proof of how highly regarded he is. At the time, Amass was only two months away from turning 16.
Amass is a gifted left-back who is anticipated to become not just a first-team standout but also maybe a senior England international in the future.
Arsenal and Chelsea were reportedly interested in signing him, but Man Utd ultimately prevailed, according to TEAMtalk.
Amass to Man Utd is a ‘deal done,’ Romano tweeted. To the dismay of Watford, the player’s transfer to Old Trafford will be finalized this week.
According to the MEN, the Hornets wanted to keep Amass and gave him a professional two-year deal that he could have signed when he turned 17 in March.
Amass, though, chose to sign with Man Utd, who will now be responsible for paying a compensation sum.
According to the MEN, Amass will sign a four-year contract at Old Trafford, and United supporters will get the chance to witness what he’s made of at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup later this year.
Amass is anticipated to participate in the Indonesian competition between November 10 and December 2.
