Manchester United in danger of missing out on 'next Ronaldo'

Published 1 Comments

Italian giants Roma are leading the race to sign Manchester United and Chelsea target Viktor Fischer, according to talkSPORT.

The 19-year-old winger has been a long-term target for the Premier League duo, however it now appears the Serie A leaders have moved ahead of both Manchester United and Chelsea in the race to sign the Danish international.

Roma were said to be keen on signing Fischer during the summer transfer window however Ajax blocked any potential moves for their highly-rated youngster.

Despite seeing Roma move to the front of the queue for his signature, Manchester United and Chelsea are expected to continue their interest in Fischer during the winter window.

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was tracking Fischer at the start of last season but was unable to land the teenager.

Fischer's former Under-19 coach Thomas Frank said last September that the Ajax starlet has the potential to be 'just like Messi or Ronaldo'.
