Manchester United have reportedly held talks with the representatives of Austrian youngster Oghenetejiri Adejenughure to discuss a move to Old Trafford this summer.

The 17-year-old is contracted to Red Bull Salzburg, although he is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Austrian outfit.

Adejenughure scored 16 times in 20 appearances at Under-18s level last term, though, and he has also managed eight goals in 12 outings for Austria Under-17s.

A host of clubs, including AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund, are said to be tracking the forward, but according to The Express, there is also firm interest from Man United.

The report claims that the Red Devils have held talks with the teenager's representatives to discuss the possibility of moving to the 20-time English champions.

Man United 'open talks over Adejenughure deal'

Austria head coach Ralf Rangnick, who was previously in charge of Man United on an interim basis, has allegedly earmarked the teenager as a future star.

Adejenughure is likely to turn out for Salzburg's reverse team in Austria's second division if he does stay this summer, but a number of clubs are seemingly hoping to put a deal in place.

A senior call-up for Austria is also allegedly not far away for the youngster, and the 2024-24 campaign is set to be a breakthrough season for the in-demand forward.

Man United's new minority shareholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe is targeting youngsters as part of his strategy at Old Trafford, with the club no longer expected to play out large fees for ageing players.

Man United already have a talented set of youngsters

Rasmus Hojlund, 21, was the top scorer for the club in his first campaign at the club, finding the back of the net on 16 occasions in all competitions last season.

Alejandro Garnacho, 19, managed 10 goals and five assists in 50 appearances in 2023-24, while 19-year-old Kobbie Mainoo scored five goals and provided one assist in 32 outings.

Hojlund, Garnacho and Mainoo are allegedly three of six unsellable players at Old Trafford, while Harry Amass, 17, and Ethan Wheatley, 18, were involved with the first team towards the end of last season.

Man United are also attempting to bring in a new centre-back this summer and have already made an offer of £35m plus add-ons for Jarrad Branthwaite, which is set to be turned down by Everton.

A new central midfielder is also a priority for the Red Devils this summer, with Benfica's Joao Neves believed to be their leading target, but the Portugal international's release clause in his contract is set at €120m (£101.6m). body check tags ::
