Transfer Update: Argentine starlet linked to a shock Manchester United transfer

This youngster from Argentina might solve Manchester United's left-back conundrum.


Manchester United are eyeing the Premier League title once again under Jose Mourinho following four disappointing league campaigns and have shown signs of improvement under the Portuguese tactician who guided them to win the League Cup and Europa League competitions last season.

The Red Devils are enjoying a decent inception of the new Premier League campaign as the former Chelsea gaffer has spent big to reconstruct his squad with big-name inclusions. They are currently second in the league, behind their city rivals Manchester City, and are eyeing to sort out the concerns with a few further recruitments in upcoming January transfer window.

The fullbacks have kept Mourinho annoyed for quite some time now and if reports from Argentina are believed to be true, the Red Devils are extensively scouting Argentino Agropecuario left-back Enzo Diaz who is currently competing in Primera B Nacional, the second tier league in Argentina, and eyeing a promotion to top-tier.

The 20-year-old Argentine youngster was scouted again in their 2-0 win over Aldosivi last Saturday that took them two points clear at the top of the Primera B table. Diaz is featuring regularly for Agropecuario and has impressed once more with his performance down the left-hand flank.

 “It is any footballer’s dream to play for United.  I spoke with their representatives, and the truth is they were delighted with me. They said they would come to watch me in a couple more games.”

The player stated to the Argentine radio when asked about a possible Manchester United transfer.

Mourinho has struggled to find a permanent solution in the left-back role due to never-ending injury concerns of Luke Shaw, the inconsistency of Daley Blind, the underperformance of Matteo Darmian and a long-standing ACL injury of Marcos Rojo, who predominantly a centre-back but also left his mark in the left fullback role. Mourinho is now playing wingman Ashley Young as a makeshift but is hoping to find a permanent solution soon.

Diaz is not experienced enough but might be handed an opportunity to impress the gaffer if this surprise deal takes place. The youngster now needs to keep his heads down and work hard for his hometown side to stake a claim at Aon Training Complex.
