Manchester United has reportedly entered the race to sign Club Brugge’s promising young attacker.
The 18-year-old Norwegian player had been on the radar of several top clubs, including Chelsea, during the summer transfer window but ultimately turned down the Blues’ offer.
Antonio Nusa’s performances in the Jupiler Pro League have been nothing short of stellar, with two goals and two assists in just five games. His impressive form also earned him a call-up to the Norway national team in September, a testament to his burgeoning talent.
During the summer, Chelsea had made a significant offer to acquire Nusa’s services. However, the young player chose to turn down the Blues’ proposal. In a recent interview, the 18-year-old explained why to TV2 (as per GOAL): “I already knew that it wasn’t going to happen, but then the money came on the table. Then it’s seen in a slightly different way. We had to have another conversation when the money arrived, but we were on the same page, so there was no problem there. I knew what to do anyway, so it was fine.”
Nusa added: “That’s a lot of money. A lot of money. But I try not to think about it so much. I can’t focus on that, you know. I don’t think it’s good for me.”
Nevertheless, Antonio Nusa has not been short of suitors. Other notable clubs such as Arsenal and Real Madrid have also expressed their interest in the talented attacker.
Now, according to fichajes.net, Manchester United has thrown its hat into the ring, showing its commitment by appointing scouts to closely monitor Nusa’s performances in both the Jupiler Pro League and the Europa League.
