According to reports, Manchester United are leading the race to sign Valencia starlet Ferhat Cogalan, but face stiff competition for his signature from North London giant Arsenal.
Ferhat,15, has been tipped for great things in the nearest future having impressed coming fron the youth level ranks at La Liga side Valencia and attracted a lot of interest.
As reported by The Sun, the youngster hasn’t yet penned a professional contract and so would be available to sign for a nominal fee which makes the attacking midfielder an attractive proposition.
Although, Arsenal will have to act fast as he’ll be able to sign a professional contract when he turns 16.
It’s reported that Manchester United have been closely watching Cogalan for the past one year, while former United defender Phil Neville has recommended the wonderkid to United Chief’ss after his time working at the Spanish La Liga club alongside his elder brother.
Reports indicate United have invited the Turkish young talent and his father Sedat to their training base in Carrington as they begin to try and convince the starlet to join the Red Devils rather than Arsenal or any other suitors.
European heavyweights AC Milan and Galatasaray are also believed to be interested, but it seems the Red Devils have made the early approach.
