Ghanaian striker encourages Manchester United interest

Emmanuel Boateng has suggested that he would welcome a move to Manchester United should the prospect arise. The Ghanaian striker, who is currently on Levante’s books, bagged seven goals for the La Liga side to help contribute to a strong 2018 for the team, including a hat-trick against champions Barcelona that snapped their season-long unbeaten run. Ghana failed to qualify for this summers world cup, but take a look at the World Cup 2018 predictions to see who has a chance of winning the best tournament in the world. The 22-year old’s trio of goals in that 5-4 win certainly caught the eye, and the young forward is dreaming of a big figure.

Speaking at a 442gh event in quotes carried by the Mirror, Boateng said: “I always dream big, I see myself playing in one of the great clubs of the world in the next five years. Big clubs like Manchester United and Barcelona excite me.”

Even after five difficult years since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, it’s comforting to see that United are still regarded as a club that can excite young players, and that the club still retains a certain level despite mixed fortunes on the pitch. David Moyes was unceremoniously sacked in 2014 having been initially brought in to replace the legendary Scot, whilst his successor Louis van Gaal lasted two seasons before being shown the door having failed to guide United to a top four finish.

Jose Mourinho has fared better than his predecessors, guiding the team to three finals and a second place finish in the Premier League last season which confirmed a second successive season in the Champions League for the first time in the post-Ferguson era. United’s most exciting prospects have struggled to set the world alight on a consistent basis during this period, however, with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard blowing hot and cold under the Portuguese’s stewardship, so if Boateng ends up with a dream move to Old Trafford, he’ll face plenty of competition for a place in the side.
