Manchester United Confirmed to be in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over Emerging Midfielder Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe

Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe is on Loan from PSG in Ligue 2

Ebimbe is currently on loan with AC Le Harve of the French second division. He has shown that he is a very talented footballer, and has four direct goal involvements from a variety of positions for the Ligue 2 side. While right midfield seems to be most favoured by the youngster, he also has the capability to play in more central positions, such as centre-mid and striker.

Currently on a two-year loan spell, the Red Devils would have to recall him from the loan should they want to sign him in the summer, and if not, they would have to wait until the summer of 2021.

Manchester United Looking for Young Talent

Manchester United are very keen on acquiring young and talented players in their bid to rebuild the squad.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently looking into many youngsters, the likes of Jude Bellingham and Jadon Sancho just a few, and PSG’s 19-year-old prospect is seemingly another.

The Frenchman told Foot Mercato that “I haven’t really had real discussions with my parents regarding that. I saw there was interest, but I think it’s more talks between the two clubs. I haven’t taken part in that yet.”

If he joined, he would be one of many talents playing for United’s academy. The likes of Hannibal Mejbri, Dylan Levitt and James Garner are all very promising midfielders, while the Red Devils are also considering moves for Eduardo Camavinga and Omer Beyaz as young additions to their side.

Not Easy to Get

It is unlikely that it will be easy for United to acquire such a talented individual, not at least from a big club like PSG. Moreover, many other sides will battle them for his signature, and it could be a long race to sign Ebimbe.
