French wonderkid tipped to join Man United after £8m bid blows rivals away

Posted by

Jose Mourinho may have gained notoriety for refusing to play young players in his final years at Chelsea, but he appears to be turning over a new leaf at Man United as he plots a move for Bordeaux wonderkid Adam Ounas.

According to RMC Sport via Transfer Tavern, the Red Devils have submitted an £8 million bid for the 19-year-old Bordeaux winger.

Ounas recorded five goals and two assists for the Ligue 1 outfit last year in 24 league appearances. He earned a cap for France’s Under-20 squad last year.

Man United fans have fond memories of the last French wonderkid they signed: star striker Anthony Martial from Monaco for a teenage transfer record-breaking fee.


Man United have continued their youth movement since bringing Jose Mourinho into the fold. They signed 22-year-old Villarreal star Eric Bailly to a four-year contract earlier this month.
