Premier League

Manchester united reach agreement to sign Real Madrid defender, the first signing of the summer

Manchester United have reportedly agreed a deal to complete the transfer of Real Madrid youngster Alvaro Fernandez Carreras. The 17-year-old left-back looks set to link up with United’s youth team after agreeing a four-year contract to move to Old Trafford after his contract with Madrid expired on June 30th, according to AS.

The full-back came through the youth team at Deportivo La Coruna, and Real pipped Barcelona to his signature three years ago. Zinedine Zidane's side were keen to keep hold of the youngster but the bright lights of the Premier League have drawn him in.

Carreras is excited by a potential new ‘adventure’ and is confident he can ‘convince’ Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he is ready to step up to the first team. AS goes on to state that the defender has been offered the opportunity to train with the senior team if they have issues at left-back. The red devils have Brandon Williams and Luke Shaw at left-back in their squad and the news of Fernandez comes at a time when both players are doubtful for their tie against Crystal Palace on Thursday night.
