Manchester United considering move for Henrik Larsson's son

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are considering a move for the son of former Barcelona striker Henrik Larsson, reports the Mail on Sunday.

The 42-year-old Swede - who also enjoyed a brief stint with the Premier League champions - has encouraged his boy, Jordan, to follow in his footsteps, and pursue a career in professional football.

Larsson junior currently plays for Hogaborgs BK in Sweden’s fourth tier, but has also trained with Helsingborgs, and is being monitored closely by Manchester United scouts.

Red Devils boss David Moyes is believed to be keen to bring the attacking midfielder to Old Trafford, given the fact he is showing huge potential.

The talented teenager spent his formative years training at Barcelona's famous La Masia academy, while his father Henrik played at Camp Nou between 2004 and 2006.

Playing for Barcelona's junior FC Escola team provided the 16-year-old with a good platform for progression, and now Jordan could emulate Henrik by securing a transfer to Manchester United.
