The Daily Mail report that Manchester United have offered a trial to West Ham’ 16-year old Oscar Borg, dubbed ‘The Next Gareth Bale’.
Nicknamed ‘Gareth’ by his Hammers coaches for his similar running and dribbling style (not to mention a reasonable physical resemblance), the Mail claim Borg would cost £220,000 should the kid impress at the trial and convince United to take up the option to buy him.
Whil even Emile Heskey looks good on a Youtube highlights reel, Borg looks very, very good on this highlights reel: pace to burn, great left foot with a sweet cross in his locker.
You can see how the nickname started. No pressure then.
