Man Utd made a £50m transfer mistake with Evan Ferguson – The striker is only 19 years old but has the perfect skill set and huge potential

According to Sky Sports, the Old Trafford team has missed out on one of the rising talents in the Premier League.

Evan Ferguson has been explosive this season and has scored 10 goals in all competitions for Brighton at the age of 18.

Ferguson’s development this season has been so rapid that United are said to be interested in signing the player this summer.

Since Leandro Trossard left Brighton, we see Roberto de Zerbi’s men still doing quite well. Many people mentioned the sublimation of Kaoru Mitoma, the stability of Alexis MacAllister; However, few people know that there is a name that is also contributing to The Seagulls’ presence in the top half of the rankings, which is Evan Ferguson.

Brighton’s star is one of the most complete young strikers today: 1.88 meters tall, plays with his back to the goal, strong, shoots well, handles the ball in tight spaces excellently.

Ferguson has just extended his contract with Brighton and wants to stay at the club so as not to hinder his development. Brighton believes Ferguson can hit the £100m mark in the near future.

According to Sky Sports, Man Utd gradually regretted this deal. Ferguson came to Old Trafford on trial at the age of 16 but was deemed not good enough. Less than 12 months later, Ferguson quickly signed for Brighton.

Sky Sports added that United’s academy director Nick Cox admitted it was a ‘£50m mistake’ and it could cost United twice that amount in the future.
