With Memphis Depay safely secured, pending a medical, the focus is set to shift as to who Louis van Gaal will sign next.

In a summer whereby we expect, possibly, as many as four / five big signings, the gossip column linked to one tabloid publication has Manchester United linked with the acquisition of a young Ghanaian midfielder.

The player in question is Bernard Mensah who is currently on the books of the Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes who he helped inspire to a very creditable fifth place in Portugal`s top league this season.

A mere 20 years of age and valued at £7 million, Mensah is, so it is being reported, also attracting attention from Inter Milan, Lyon and Valencia.

Discussing a possible move to Old Trafford, Mensah is quoted in the media as having remarked,

“It`s true that Manchester United want me, because they are in talks with my team.

“I haven`t spoken to any official from Manchester United but some of their people have spoken to Guimaraes”


Bernard Mensah, a name to keep an eye out for this summer as Louis van Gaal continues to overhaul the squad into a potential title winning one.
