Once again, Man United are poised to miss out on a young talent in Angelo Fulgini. Are the Red Devils struggling to evaluate youth prospects?
Despite interest from Manchester United, Valenciennes midfield ace Angelo Fulgini is poised to move to Anfield instead of Old Trafford.
According to the Metro, Fulgini has been invited to a trial with Liverpool and is closing in on a transfer with the Reds. Man United and AC Milan were believed to be heavily linked with a move for Fulgini, but it appears Brendan Rodgers will get the signature of the 18-year-old French Under-19 international.
Liverpool are eager to rebuild their midfield after losing club legend Steven Gerrard to retirement and selling Raheem Sterling to Man City earlier this summer. After finishing 6th on the Premier League table, the Reds have a lot of catching up to do and need to develop some talent to fill the newly-made void.
