Man United looking to complete first signing under Sir Jim Ratcliffe with club meeting his release clause

Man United looking to complete first signing under Sir Jim Ratcliffe with club meeting his release clause

Man Utd could sign a teenage sensation.

Manchester United are pushing to make a wonderkid their first signing under Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

Since becoming a minority owner of United earlier this year, the INEOS chairman has been busy making appointments on the footballing side of operations at Old Trafford.

Plans are also being made for the transfer market, as Ratcliffe looks to build a long-term project and return the club to the top of English football.

While there are several areas of Erik ten Hag's squad that need immediate reinforcement, Ratcliffe's plans include signing young talents that can be the future of the club.

One talent that United are seriously interested in is Argentine centre-back Aaron Anselmino.

According to TyC Sports journalist Julio Pavoni - relayed by FourFourTwo - United are considering a move to the 18-year-old Boca Juniors sensation, and could activate his £17 million release clause.

Anselmino has made just seven senior appearances to date, but United consider him to be such a unique talent that they aren't deterred by his lack of experience.

The report suggests that United would loan Anselmino back to Boca for a season, so that he can continue his development before moving to the Premier League.

However, despite reports of United's interest in him, Anselmino has publicly downplayed the idea of him leaving Boca anytime soon.

After Boca's 3-0 win against Central Norte in the Copa Argentina on Sunday, the defender insisted he wants to stay at his boyhood club at least until he wins something.

"My head is here at Boca," he said.

"I want to win titles here and win titles with this shirt. Nothing has come from outside."

Should Anselmino want the lowdown on what it's like to play at Old Trafford, then he need only speak to current Boca teammates and former United stars Marcos Rojo, Edinson Cavani and Sergio Romero.
