Manchester United are to take Wisla Krakow goalkeeper Kacper Chorążka on trial this May.
The 17-year-old will come over to Manchester in the second half of May to undergo a week long trial at Carrington much like 16-year-old South African born defender Keith Groeneveld completed last week.
Speaking about the trial to Krakow Sport, Chorążka admitted it was not something he expected to happen but an opportunity he could not turn down.
He said: “I’m in very good hands with coach Arhur Łaciak and I also have the chance to train with the first-team at Wisla Krakow. I will willingly stay at Wisla and fight for a place in goal with the first-team but a club like Manchester United you simply cannot refuse.”
Having already played for Poland’s U16s and U17s, Chorążka has garnered attention previously and has already undergone a trial with Rangers, Brighton in 2014 and Tottenham Hotspur. Now he’ll come over to Manchester and spend a week with our U18s to see if he can earn himself a move in the summer.
In 2014, he signed a three-year professional contract with Wisla Krakow but is yet to make his debut for the senior side and currently plays with their U19s. With George Dorrington likely to leave United this summer, Nicky Butt looks to be on the hunt for a new goalkeeper to strengthen the options in our academy.
Here’s an interview with Chorążka from back in 2014 where he discusses how he started off as a defensive midfielder and goes on to chat about some trials he’s already had.
