Manchester United has set its sights on acquiring the talented 17-year-old Swedish wonderkid, Lucas Bergvall, currently playing for Djurgardens IF, as reported by Fussball.news.
With 29 senior appearances already under his belt, Bergvall, a versatile player in central or defensive midfield, has garnered interest from various clubs, including Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, and Eintracht Frankfurt, valuing him at €8-10 million.
Despite United’s keen interest, the competition for Bergvall’s signature is fierce, and the lack of transfer funds this month poses a challenge for the Red Devils.
The club, currently navigating tight Financial Fair Play constraints, may struggle to afford a permanent transfer.
Bergvall, who has previously trialed with United at the age of 14 and holds a fondness for the club, might see a move delayed due to financial considerations.
Eintracht Frankfurt, actively pursuing a transfer agreement with Djurgardens IF this month, is reportedly prepared to pay €9 million for the young midfielder and integrate him into their first team immediately.
Given United’s financial constraints, unless they escalate their interest with a formal approach, Eintracht Frankfurt appears poised to secure the promising Swedish talent in the coming days.
If playing time is a priority for Bergvall, the Bundesliga side could offer him regular minutes, potentially swaying his decision away from Old Trafford.
