Manchester United have decided to take Swedish attacking-midfielder Sead Haksabanovic on trial, with the 16-year-old being given a week to impress Old Trafford coaches.
That’s according to Swedish newspaper Kvallsposten, who say that the 16-year-old will be handed an opportunity to strut his stuff with the Red Devils having already tried his hand with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.
The youngster’s current club, Halmstad, have reportedly given him permission to train with United, despite the fact that it means he’ll miss their clash with Helsingborg.

Reports say that Haksabanovic is keen to impress whilst at United, perhaps hinting that it’s Old Trafford he sees himself playing for in the future.
At the moment it looks to be little more than a trial, but if the Swede is as good as the big Premier League clubs seem to think he is then United are sure to be interested in pursuing him further.
Given his age there will be little difficulty in the Red Devils finalising a purchase for the teenager, though the likes of City, Chelsea and Liverpool will surely also be ready to fight for him if he was equally as eye-catching at their respective clubs.
It’s believed the midfielder will have until August 21 to show United he has what it takes to cut it in England. Only time will tell whether or not he’s good enough to do that.
