British tabloid The Sun has described young Ghanaian winger Kamaldeen Sulemana as “the best Ghanaian player since Michael Essien”.

The Sun reports Manchester United are ready to press ahead with a £15million bid for winger Kamaldeen Sulemana – and hope he will be qualified to play for them by the start of next season.

United sent top scout Tommy Moller Nielsen to watch Sulemana score in FC Nordsjaelland’s 2-2 draw against Copenhagen on Monday night after tracking the 19-year-old all season.

SunSport understands they are set to make a move for the Ghana international soon. United are reportedly in a battle against Ajax, Bayer Leverkusen, Lyon and Monaco in the race for his signature.

Under the new post-Brexit transfer rules, Sulemana does not have enough points to gain a work permit but that could change this summer if the Danish league climbs one place in the Uefe co-efficients, which would then see him meet the new UK points regulations.Another possible hope for United would be if Sulemana makes one more competitive appearance for Ghana.

The teenager has caught the eye after an impressive first full season at Nordsjaelland. Sulemana has scored ten goals in 28 appearances for the Danish giants in 2020-21.
