Man Utd ready to step up £15m transfer bid for Ghana wonderkid Sulemana, 19, after he scores twice in front of top scout

MANCHESTER UNITED are ready to press ahead with a £15million bid for winger Kamaldeen Sulemana - and hope he will be qualified to play for them by the start of next season.

United sent top scout Tommy Moller Nielsen to watch Sulemana score in FC Nordsjaelland’s 2-2 draw against Copenhagen on Monday night after tracking the 19-year-old all season.

And SunSport understands they are set to make a move for the Ghana international soon.

United know they may need to act fast in order to beat Ajax, Bayer Leverkusen, Lyon and Monaco in the race for his signature.

But any move represents a gamble by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Under the new post-Brexit transfer rules, Sulemana does not have enough points to gain a work permit.

That could change this summer if the Danish league climbs one place in the Uefe co-efficients, which would then see him meet the new UK points regulations.

Another possible hope for United would be if Sulemana makes one more competitive appearance for Ghana.

That too would again see his points tally rise enough to gain a work permit to play in England.

Ajax director of football Marc Overmars is also understood to have watched him on Monday night.

The Dutch giants have initially told Nordsjaelland they would be prepared to pay £10m to secure a deal.

The teenager has caught the eye after an impressive first full season at Nordsjaelland.

Sulemana has scored ten goals in 28 appearances for the Danish giants in 2020-21.
