One of Manchester United’s brightest young talents has left the club after turning down a new contract.
Mipo Odubeko may be just 16 but he is regarded as one of the best strikers in their academy and netted 35 goals last season.
The Republic of Ireland Under-17 has rejected an extension from the Red Devils as he believes his future is better served away from the club.
His contract expired at the end of June and it has sparked a frantic scramble for his signature, according to the Mail Online.
Several overseas clubs are thought to be interested in signing Odubeko with Feyenoord, Bayern Munich and Genoa all thought to be ready to make a move.
Newcastle and Burnley are the English sides who have already shown an interest.
