Premier League giant, Manchester United have targeted young and fastest emerging Ghanaian centre-back Mohammed Salisu who plays for Real Valladolid in the Spanish top flight. He is now manager Null Sergio’s first choice in the heart of defence due to how solid he’s been at the back.
Report indicates the Red Devils have started monitoring the Ghanaian and has really impressed their scouts so far with a move for his service in future very possible.
The highly rated defender has been in a fine form so far this season for the Pucelas having played 13 games so far this season with a goal in their 2-0 triumph over Eibar weeks ago.
Club owner, Luiz Nazario de Lima Ronaldo and the other shareholders of the club won’t sell the boy something below €12m since that is the release clause in his contract.
The 20 year old defender since joining Real Valladolid from Africa Talent Academy in 2017 has been sensational for the White and Violets. He was with their B team last season in the Spanish Segunda division having played 39 games and scoring one goal.
His stellar performance in the Spanish Laliga so far caught the attention of Coach Kwesi Appiah to hand him his debut call up into the senior national team in the just ended international break.
Unfortunately, Mohammed Salisu had to withdraw from the squad due to a minor injury he sustained in their last fixture prior to the break.
He has now recovered fully and lasted 84 minutes in their 0-1 home defeat to Sevilla last Sunday at the Estadio Jose Zorrilla. They are now placed 14th on the Laliga log with seventeen points after thirteen games.
