Kamaldeen: Man Utd’s interest in Nordsjaelland wonderkid confirmed
Kamaldeen Sulemana is a transfer target for Manchester United, Nordsjaelland president Jan Laursen has confirmed.
The 19-year-old Kamaldeen has been in eye-catching form for the Danish outfit of late, scoring six goals in his last six outings for the side that lies sixth in the Superliga.
Man Utd have shown a willingness to pick up young talent from abroad in recent times, notably signing Amad Diallo from Atalanta in January.
And Kamaldeen is another player they are keeping close tabs on.
“It’s been in the papers, and Man Utd are one of those clubs that’s here sometimes, too. It’s probably one of those clubs that also follows him closely,” Laursen told Bold.dk.
“I have the feeling that there are some who will be happy, even if they have to pay a lot of money, but time will tell.
“There are many who follow him, and not everyone who would like to be here because of various restrictions. Of course, some of the heavyweights follow him closely.”
Brexit stumbling block over Kamaldeen deal
Brexit means that Man Utd are limited in the numbers of young players they can bring in from abroad each year, but while Kamaldeen is unlikely to be impacted by this, there is no guarantee that he would receive a work permit to play in the UK.
Denmark is ranked too low in the UEFA co-efficient for the winger to have enough points to automatically be granted the right to play in the UK, but if Sulemana was to turn out once more for Ghana, taking him to three international appearances, he would be brought over the threshold.
The Black Stars’ next fixture is due to be played on 31 August against Ethiopia, with no dates yet confirmed for the Premier League’s summer transfer period.
Man Utd face competition from Ajax in the signing of Kamaldeen.
