Manchester United Favourites To Land This Sensational English Custodian: A Smart Catch?

Manchester United fans will be very happy at present, with their team doing good business this summer, bringing in one of the best strikers in the whole of Europe in the form of Romelu Lukaku, who went on to become the second highest scorer in the last season playing for his club Everton. In addition to that, the Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has reportedly confirmed the fact that his team’s current number 1, David De Gea, will not be leaving for Real Madrid in the summer transfer market.

The Red Devils’ head coach, however, is eyeing new talents who can challenge the Spanish shot stopper in the future for a position beneath the bars. One such player is the England Youth level goalkeeper Jake Turner, who currently plays for the Championship side Bolton Wanderers.

The 18-year-old, who is yet to make a senior side appearance for his club, has been termed as one of the brightest players who has a great future ahead of him, both at the club level as well as the international level. The teenager shot stopper made a number of appearances for the club in their youth ranks and has penned down a full-time contract recently after spending one season on the bench for the Trotters.

Turner’s ball handling capacity, along with his leadership skills and his ability to keep a cool and composed attitude even in the most complicated of situations has made him one of the most desired young players, with a number of big name clubs showing interest to bag the player for the next term.

Besides Manchester United, fellow Premier League side Everton have also been monitoring the progress curve of the 18-year-old very closely, with a view to bagging him in the forthcoming days.

Manchester United’s current coach Jose Mourinho has been known for his inspirational tutelage and his benevolent guidance, which has helped a number of young players on their way to becoming some of the most highly regarded players in the current situation.

The Portuguese tactician has handled a number of young players and has helped to bring out the best in them, the best example being the Real Madrid centre back Raphael Varane, who is a regular member of the French national squad in the current situation.

It goes without saying that an offer from one of the biggest clubs in the world will be too hard for Turner to resist, as it will be a great opportunity for shaping his career.
