Manchester United want to tie up deals for Juan Familia Castillo and Matthew Olosunde soon, as they look to boost their youth ranks over the coming months, according to the Daily Mail. The midfielder and defender respectively are very highly-rated, and are top targets for The Red Devils, and a move could be done in the near future, it is believed.
Castillo is currently at Ajax, and has attracted a lot of attention at both domestic and international level, captaining the Dutch under-16 side. At 15, he also plays above his age group in Amsterdam, featuring regularly for the under-17 team at Ajax. He’s a more attacking player, and has shown he knows where the net is, which is what has drawn Manchester United to him. They have been keeping an eye on the fledgling midfielder for some time, and now he is deemed to be good enough to move to Old Trafford to continue his development.
United also seem close to completing a deal for Matthew Olosunde, who has been training with the club ahead of a potential move. The Premier League title hopefuls have liked what they’ve seen from the 17-year-old, and are prepared to offer the American a deal. However, work permits and international clearance may provide the final stumbling block in allowing Olosunde to move to Europe.
