Man United interested in signing 16-year-old talented shot-stopper

Man United are closing in on the capture of Elyh Harrison. The 16-year-old shot-stopper currently plies his trade with Stevenage and is currently regarded as one of the most promising goalkeepers in his age group, with many backing him to achieve great success in professional football.

It appears Elyh is poised to take the next step in his footballing career already by joining the Red Devils in the coming campaign. Man United have agreed on a deal with Stevenage to sign the goalkeeper at the end of the campaign, as new manager Erik ten Hag looks to shore up his options in the goalkeeping department.

The Red Devils, after all, are facing a precarious situation in the last line of defence, with questions being asked over the long-term future of de Gea in light of his deal, which expires at the end of the next campaign.

Although recent reports indicate the club are keen on tying the Spanish goalkeeper down to a new deal, there is a dearth of reliable alternatives for the former Atletico Madrid sensation, especially with Henderson falling out of favour at Theatre of Dreams while Tom Heaton is well past his prime.

At the age of only 16, Harrison is far from a finished product. But Elyh has shown tremendous talent in the lower youth ranks and has firmly established himself as one of the most exciting goalkeeping talents in the lower leagues of English football.
