Premier League giants Manchester United are closing in on their first signing in this January transfer window according to various reports emanating from the British media.
The Daily Mail claim that the Red Devils are on the verge of securing the transfer of highly rated young French midfielder Noah Emeran this month and that the player will join the club before the current January transfer window runs out.
The 16-year-old has caught the eye of Manchester United officials despite the fact that he has not played a single professional game for his club.
Noah Emeran is presently on the payroll of French Ligue 1 club SC Amiens.
Manchester United will pay a compensation fee of around £90,000 for the young Frenchman.
Emeran has played twice for the French u-16 team.
He can play in midfield as well as in the forward positions.
The latest development is coming on the back of the great news that the attacking duo of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial will be handed respective new contracts to commit their long-term futures to the club.
Rashford has been previously linked with European heavyweights like Real Madrid and Juventus, while Martial is a strong transfer target of Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan.
