Manchester United beat rivals to sign Swiss wonderkid

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are set to show their rivals they still have the ability to lure the best young talent to the club by swooping to sign 16-year-old Swiss starlet Dimitri Oberlin Mfomo, reports the Sunday People

The FC Zurich youngster has been tracked by a host of Europe's top clubs after impressing in Switzerland. 

The starlet is a relatively unknown prospect, but with his current deal at Zurich set to end, it would seem David Moyes has benchmarked the midfielder as a future star, and can bring the Swiss under-17 international to Old Trafford for a small compensation fee. 

United have used youth in their side this season - bringing through the highly rated Adnan Januzaj into the first-team squad and making him into a regular starter in the Premier League. 

And with the new rules coming into place, it is a chance for United to produce another home-grown player into their ranks by bringing him through their youth education system.
