Manchester United are reportedly confident of agreeing a deal to sign Ajax midfielder Juan Familia-Castillo in the January transfer window.
The 15 years old is highly regarded in Amsterdam and United scouts have watched the midfielder on a number of occasions during the last 18months.
Castillo is the captain of Holland’s U16 side and despite the fact that he is yet to turn 16, the midfielder regularly turns out for Ajax’s u17. Castillo is seen as a star for the future and won’t solve United immediate needs.
Castillo is a name that would shake the footballing world, if he keeps developing and nurturing his talents; with time he would be ranked as one of the best young talents around, with his dribbling ability and excellent passing ability.
The Red Devils have a good youth system that has produced a lot of world class players into the footballing environment; players like Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Danny Welbeck etc. so Castillo should be rest assured that he is entering a team where he would not just develop as player but would also have his opportunity at first team football.
