Madueke Attracting Interest From Manchester United

Madueke Attracting Interest From Manchester United

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly competing with Tottenham and Leicester in the race to sign PSV Nigerian winger Noni Madueke.

Madueke has earned rave reviews during his time in Holland since departing Spurs’ academy for the Eredivisie side in June 2018.

The 19-year-old, who rejected a proposal from United three years ago, cemented himself as a regular in PSV’s first team last campaign where he chipped in with nine goals and eight assists in 32 games.

And the England youth international – valued at around £20million by the Dutch giants – already has five strikes to his name from just seven outings this term.

According to the Daily Mail, scouts from the Red Devils, Spurs and the Foxes were in attendance for his recent appearance in Wednesday’s Champions League qualifying clash against Benfica.

All three clubs are said to have had representatives at the Estadio da Luz where Benfica edged out a 2-1 win in the first leg.

They also state it’s not just English clubs that are interested in the teenager, with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich watching the player.

Serie A side’s Juventus, Roma and Atalanta also had the chance to see the forward in action against the Portuguese outfit.

Meanwhile Sky Sports have suggested that Wolverhampton Wanderers are also monitoring Madueke, though his price tag could prove too much for them.

And SunSport reported last month how Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira is an admirer of the youngster.

Though the Eagles also have Arsenal ace Reiss Nelson and RB Leipzig’s Ademola Lookman on their shortlist.

Madueke spoke to SunSport in December where he revealed how the club’s U19s coach Ruud van Nistelrooy has been honing his finishing.

He said: “Ruud helped me a lot last year, taking my game to the next level and now I am just trying to get better every day.

“I have always scored nice goals but I know I needed to score easier ones — being in the right place at the right time — striker-type finishes.

“Ruud has been teaching me how to get into those positions more and, being a Manchester United fan, I know he is the master of that.”
