Man United on the brink of signing free-scoring centre-forward

Reports have emerged that prolific Nigerian striker Mipo Odubeko is set to pen a new deal with Manchester United.

Mipo Odubeko is Premier League giants’ top striker playing below the U18 age group, and the club are keen to ensure the talent stays at Old Trafford outfit after offering him a scholarship deal.

The new contract will be activated before the start of the 2019-20 season, on July 1, 2019, and will run until the summer of 2021.

A Republic of Ireland youth international, Mipo Odubeko joined Manchester United from St Joseph’s Boys and rose through the ranks before his promotion to the club’s U16 and U17 teams.

It is envisaged that he will be promoted to the Red Devils U18 team for the 2019-2020 season.

The number of goals the African has scored for Manchester United’s youth teams this season are too many to count, and he has added assists to his game of recent.

Meanwhile Romelu Lukaku is struggling to score a goal, and Jose Mourinho has preferred Marcus Rashford at No.9 position but the Englishman has also failed to find form at the club level.
