Manchester United start talks over $3m deal for Ghanaian striker Schlupp

Posted On Monday, 4th March 2013

English giants Manchester United are poised to open talks with Leicester City over a $3 million deal for their Ghanaian striker Jeffrey Schlupp.

United are in pole position to sign the Ghana international and are expected to enter advanced negotiations with the Championship club this week.

Schlupp has played in the last two under-21s games for United after he was invited for a trial in January.

The 20-year-old has impressed coaching staff at Old Trafford and tentative discussions have been held regarding a transfer worth an eventual £2.5 million after add-ons.

Nigel Pearson, the Leicester manager, said: “I think we’ll be discussing this week what the next step is.

“He’s done well at United, he’s played the last two games that he can play there so clearly it’s going to have some effect this week.”

Schlupp can be recalled by Leicester at any time and could be in contention for the game against Leeds United on Tuesday night.

Any deal with United would mean he is ineligible to play for them until next season.

    The article says he will be ineligible to play for them this season, so what is the point of signing him anyways unless he want the mgs being I was signs by united and not even a bench warmer.

    @all those saying whats the point in signing him if he is going to be loaned out or be a bench warmer, ehat is soo wrong with either of them. i believe with hard work he can come out of loan/bench and be a first team player .
    anyway do you always have to wait for the fruit to always ripe before you pluck???
    too much talk isnt good

    Danny Welbeck was with the youth team for a very long time, today, he is enjoying his game. Schlupp is younger than Welbeck so it makes sense to take his time. Whatever decision Man-U takes, it would eventually profit the young man and Ghana.
    Let’s pray for Schlupp to reach his fullest potential.
