Porto B’s young sensation, Ussumane Djalo, is currently on the radar of Manchester United, as per reports from The Daily Mail.
This 19-year-old midfielder, hailing from Guinea, has been the subject of interest from a host of English clubs, thanks to his performances in the UEFA Youth League.
Djalo, who is part of Portugal’s Under 19 team, has been creating a buzz with his skillful play, leading to scouts from Manchester United, Brighton, Everton, and Southampton being seen at Porto’s youth matches in recent months.
Despite a release clause set at £8 million, there’s speculation that Djalo could be secured for a lower fee. As a talented deep-lying midfielder,
Djalo’s potential is evident, and his release clause presents an opportunity for wealthier English clubs to snap him up.
In the current season, Djalo has appeared seven times for Porto B and has been particularly notable in the UEFA Youth League, as per stats by transfermarkt.com.
In just five appearances in this competition, he has already scored a goal and provided two assists. His standout performance includes scoring in Porto’s 4-1 victory against Shakhtar Donetsk.
Another highlight was his involvement in Porto youth’s remarkable 4-0 win against Barcelona’s youth squad.
Djalo’s international experience is also noteworthy, having played for his country at under 15, 17, and 19 levels.
His consistent performance suggests it won’t be long before he advances to under 21 and potentially to the senior national team, considering his swift ascent in the football world.
