Manchester United are reportedly on the verge of securing a deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur prospect Jayden Meghoma.

According to Caught Offside, Manchester United are closing in on the capture of Jayden Meghoma. The Tottenham Hotspur starlet is considered one of the finest young players in England, following his excellent performances in the youth competitions.

But much to Tottenham’s frustration, Meghoma could be headed to Manchester United for the next stage of his development, as he looks to make his professional breakthrough in the coming years.

A left-back by trade, Meghoma is a product of the Tottenham youth academy who has performed consistently in the youth leagues. He has even represented England at the youth level and is regarded as one of the best in Europe among his age group.

Despite being only 15, the youngster has shown the zest and the potential to become an asset in the Premier League in the years to come. To no one’s surprise, Meghoma’s rapid rise to prominence at Tottenham has not gone unnoticed, with Manchester United currently on the verge of securing his signature ahead of the new season.

Given his age, Meghoma has a long way to go before he can make his breakthrough at the professional level. But he can certainly work on his game in the Manchester United academy that has produced some fine players in recent years, including Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay and Anthony Elanga, among many others.

The 15-year-old will be hoping to follow in their footsteps and eventually become a useful first-team option for new coach Erik ten Hag, within a few years’ time. Until then, the left-back is expected to ply his trade with Manchester United’s Under-18 squad and continue his progression with the English heavyweights.

Meanwhile, Tottenham will be devastated to have lost one of their most gifted players in the academy. The loss of Meghoma could particularly hit harder as the 15-year-old was a left-back, who may have emerged as the ideal long-term fix on the left flank in the coming years.

However, with Meghoma likely to join Manchester United ahead of the new season, it won’t be surprising to see Tottenham bagging a few youth prodigies themselves, with the Lilywhites reportedly bringing in Josh Keeley. recently.
