Mats Moller Daehli could become the latest in a string of talented youngsters to leave Manchester United according to the Norway daily VG.
The report by Jon Martin states that a lack of game time for Warren Joyce’s U21s is the reason behind a potential move but goes on to suggest that it is actually United who are really keen for him to get some more game time under his belt rather than the player forcing the move, indicating that it is a loan move rather than permanent in order for him to gain more minutes.
Daehli is one of the most coveted players in the current academy setup.He has previously won the Jimmy Murphy Player of the Year and continued his progress in the last campaign with five goals in 20 appearances for the U18s, despite being forced to play out wide on occasions.
At just 18, Daehli leaving on loan would be a real sign of change from United. We lost Morrison and Pogba because they weren’t getting enough minutes on the pitch and the latter has now predictably flourished into a fantastic midfielder.
With Januzaj being given a spot on the bench against West Brom in the last game of the season and now a potential loan move for Daehli, United may have reacted just in time in order to keep our most talented youngsters happy at the club.
His progress has seen him selected for the Norway U19s squad and he only just missed out on a spot in the U21s side that competed in the European Championships.
The article indicates that Molde would be where he would go on loan and if he was to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, I can’t see a negative aspect to it.
Now that Magnus Wolff Eikrem has left for SC Heerenveen, they need a midfield maestro that Daehli could become and back in his homeland, the youngster would be able to flourish given the level of the Norwegian league.
There is no official word from his agent Jim Solbakken or Molde as of yet according to VG.
