Manchester United tracking Brazilian Youngster Gustavo Assuncao


Manchester United are said to be keeping an eye on Famalicao’s youngster, Gustavo Assuncao, according to AS reports.

Many clubs across Europe are interested in the youngster. Nice and Sevilla are two of the clubs that are showing prominent interest. But among the English clubs, Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested along with Red Devils.

Everton have been revamping their side slowly under manager Carlo Ancelotti and bringing the young blood will be a great choice. Manchester United are also planning a slow rebuild by bringing young talents to their club. They managed to sign promising youngsters Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo on summer transfer deadline day.

Gustavo has been catching a lot of attention:

The 20-year old spent his youth career at Atletico Madrid where his father, Paulo Assuncao had played for 4 years. He joined the Portuguese side last year and has made 46 appearances since.

Gustavo also captained his side already this season. The position he plays is the same as his father’s. He is a Holding Midfielder, and his performance this season shows why everyone is trying to get hold of him.

Gustavo joined the Liga NOS side in 2019. According to the contract, he will remain a Famalicao player until June 2025. But given his current growth, many clubs will be trying to get his signature. And a proper bid made won’t be denied by the club. The rumored tag for the player is around €25 million.

Manchester United with Gustavo Assuncao:

Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s takeover, the main objective has been to bring in youngsters for the long term plan. We could see the United academy also getting first-team chances.

Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Facundo Pellistri are the recent additions to the plan. Amand Traore will be the latest to join this January.

Red Devils have been investing in the youth for the past two years. Brexit was what actually motivated them. There have been many changes brought in the rules of the Premier League because of the above. The clubs will not be allowed to buy foreign players below the age of 18. Only 3 players can be bought between the age of 18-21 in every transfer window.
