Manchester United are planning a January bid for the Norwegian “wonderkid” in competition with Arsenal and Ajax

Sivert Mannsverk

What a few days ago looked like free imagination is now starting to look like something that might actually happen. Several English media report that Sivert Mannsverk, who is referred to as “wonderkid”, is on Erik ten Hag’s relatively short list of attackers in January.

Daily Maul reports that Manchester United want both a loan deal with an option to buy for Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix and a direct purchase from Molde.

There are two things that have been determined from the economists at Old Trafford. – First of all, loan agreements must be given high priority and, in the event that this does not happen, it must be cheap. – For example, work is being done on a transfer for Real Madrid right wing Marco Asensio, but then it must be reasonable.

Asensio could be available for between €15-20m, given his current contract status, and Sport claim a deal could be done within days.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are also focusing on a Norwegian star.

French Jeunes Footeux, BBC and Sky Sports report that Manchester United, Dutch Ajax and league leader Arsenal all have 20-year-old Sivert Mannsverk. – The price of just 10 million euros is decisive.

Now things are going terribly fast for Sivert Mannsverk. In November, Molde’s midfield jewel was brought up to the national team by Ståle Solbakken and now two of the big names in the Premier League are chasing him.

Mannsverk has scored five goals during his senior career so far, and Molde boss Erling Moe compared him to none other than United legend Roy Keane. In April, he told Nettavisen: “He is sensible in his choices, and then he is very tough in the head”.
