Manchester United weigh in on a summer dive for much sought-after RSC Anderlecht star Sergio Gomez.
According to a report from Anderlecht Online, Manchester United is one of two clubs preparing a bid for Sergio Gomez in the summer. The RSC Anderlecht youngster has become one of the most sought-after players in Belgium after coming over from Borussia Dortmund at the start of the season.
Earlier this week it was announced that Manchester United are interested in the player. And it looks like the Premier League giants are willing to follow their interest by making an offer for the young Spaniard, although Sevilla FC would also be in the running.
Formerly of the famous La Masia youth academy, Gomez had started his career as an attacking midfielder. But during his time at Anderlecht he switched to a left back. And the results have been more than appealing, with the 21-year-old racking up 14 assists in just 41 competitive outings.
Gomez’s performance has not gone unnoticed either, with the youngster also appearing as a target for a Leeds United team looking to increase competition for Junior Firpo, who has struggled with injuries since his arrival from the Nou Camp.

His immense technical prowess, coupled with his ability to create chances in the final third, should suit someone like Erik ten Hag, who is poised to become Manchester United’s next manager next season after talks with the representatives earlier. in the competition. month.
At the age of 21, Gomez has a bright future ahead of him. His creativity across the board has been a prominent feature of his game, and you might expect him to thrive under ten Hag’s system, which relies heavily on technical skills and sense of position. Manchester United have no shortage of alternatives, however, as they have also targeted up-and-coming Scottish fullback Aaron Hickey, who makes his trade at Bologna in Serie A.
