One of Manchester United’s transfer targets has been speaking about a potential move to Old Trafford this week and has described the move as ‘a dream’.
That transfer target is none other that who is pulling up trees in the Norweigan top flight, the Tippeligaen forSarpsborg.
The player is said to be the target of some of the biggest clubs in world football and a move could even break the £50million mark.
That comes with the player, only 18, impressing immensely in recent months with Manchester United sending out scouts to watch him as early as last weekend.
Diatta is seen as a midfielder with immense potential and would command a huge fee, meaning the Red Devils would need to spend big.
Though, convincing the player might not be too difficult after he described a potential move to Manchester as a ‘dream move’.
“It’s a dream for me, but now I’m in Sarpsborg and I love this club. Then we’ll see what’s going on in the future,” he explained.
The Sporting director of Sarpsborg explained that several big clubs have been watching the players progress.
“There were three big clubs here [on Monday], and that is natural as he is the most exciting young player in the Norwegian Premier League.”

Man United battle Liverpool and Arsenal for star striker
While Man United will no doubt be fighting for the signature of Diatta, they are also battling for another player.
This time other interest comes from Liverpool and Arsenal so Mourinho will have his work cut out.
If these links are to be believed, it could well be a massive January transfer window or Summer transfer window for all clubs.
