According to sources from Metro, Man City plans to recruit young talent Kobbie Mainoo. The 18-year-old midfielder impressed experts in the Man City shirt. Mainoo made three appearances for the Red Devils first team, including his debut against Charlton Athletic in January 2023.
Last season, Mainoo was awarded Man United’s Young Player of the Year award. The England U19 international won the FA Youth Cup in the 2021/2022 season.
The English midfielder participated in Man United’s summer tour this year. Mainoo played impressively, receiving high praise from experts. Unfortunately, a serious ankle injury in a friendly match against Real Madrid kept Mainoo out for more than 2 months.
Mainoo returned to the bench in Man United’s 3-0 loss to Man City. According to Metro, coach Erik ten Hag highly appreciates Mainoo’s talent.
This season, the Dutch strategist faces great pressure after Man United’s poor results from the beginning of the season. Two consecutive 0-3 defeats pushed the Red Devils into a form crisis.
