The Ivorian can be out there at an inexpensive value, at 24 is a perfect age and as somebody enjoying within the Eredivisie, it’s exhausting to think about that United boss Erik ten Hag shouldn’t be nicely conscious of his capabilities.

It feels as if lightning might be about to strike twice in the identical place.
The opposite place United unquestionably must strengthen is striker.
