Transfer News: Manchester United keen to sign 19-year-old Brazilian sensation

Manchester United want to sign Gabriel Veron from Palmeiras

According to The Sun, Manchester United are very keen on signing talented Brazilian winger Gabriel Veron from Palmeiras following some impressive performances from the youngster.

Man United are not the only club keen on signing the Brazilian sensation with Barcelona and Manchester City also in the race for the teenage starlet. Interest from such big clubs at such a young age must be flattering for the youngster but it also shows the potential the player possesses.

Brazil have a history of producing young talented wingers on a regular basis who go on to make it big in Europe and Veron could be the next in the line of Neymar, Vinicius, Rodrygo, and Antony amongst so many others who have done just that.

Highly rated during his time at Palmeiras, Veron is extremely skilful and electric and it is easy to see why teams are interested in him. His versatility is a huge plus with the starlet capable of playing on either wing and as a striker.

This season, Veron has played 33 times for the Brazilian club scoring one goal and providing five assists across all competitions. Whilst these numbers are not anything special, Veron is much more than these stats show.

Not the first Gabriel to come out of the Palmeiras team and make it big in the Premier League, Veron could follow his Brazilian compatriot in making a similar switch albeit to the other Manchester club and make it big here.

At 19, there is no doubt that Veron will be extremely raw and will have so much about his game that he will have to fine-tune but who better than our new manager than Erik ten Hag to develop a youngster and make him a world-class player.

One thing that needs to be considered is what this means for our existing young wingers who are waiting for an opportunity to impress like Facundo Pellistro, Amad Diallo and Alejandro Garnacho but Man United are likely to have a plan.

Man United’s interest in a player who is tipped to become a superstar is very good but they will have a job on their hands trying to beat the likes of Manchester City and Barcelona and convincing Veron to sign for them.

It remains to be seen what plans Man United have for Gabriel Veron. Signing him and loaning him out seems like a smart decision but ten Hag could have other ideas.
