After bringing in players such as Hannibal Mejbri, Marc Jurado, Filip Stevanovic, Zidane Iqbal, Mateo Mejia, and Dillon Hoogewerf over the past 12 months, United are now trying to look for their next young star to add to their ranks.

It comes as no surprise that United are scouting more Scandinavian talent since the arrival of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. They infamously nearly signed Erling Haaland from RB Salzburg in December 2019 as well as Joshua King from Bournemouth in the recent January transfer window.

Nielsen spoke to Scandinavian outlet Ekstra Bladet about his role at Manchester United recently:

"My job is to be updated on everything that happens in Scandinavia," he said.

"If a player shows up, Manchester United must be able to draw a report and see if it is a player we can use. It is a pleasure and a great inspiration to work in a club where you are constantly thinking about developing and getting better. Manchester United is a fantastic employer."

What do you think of Manchester United eyeing another youngster?
