Manchester United have just been confirmed to get the wonderkid signature of the Spanish La Liga, Mateo Mejia. The hot news was immediately denied by Real Zaragoza as the club that overshadowed the player.
Mateo Mejia has indeed become the center of attention of many European elite clubs in the past few seasons. The 16-year-old player is rumored to have made Manchester United dare to pour funds of 600 thousand pounds to buy it in the transfer market this summer.
The scattered news also received rejection from Real Zaragoza which stated that all of that was not true. Through a statement on the club’s official website, Zaragoza wrote a statement that there was no agreement between them and Manchester United.
Here is a statement from Zaragoza written on the account of his official page:
Responding to the widespread information in the UK about Real Zaragoza soccer player Mateo Mejia and the interest from Manchester United to buy it, Real Zaragoza wants to clarify the following points:
“Mateo Mejia is an active player who plays as a member of the Real Zaragoza club in the Cadete category. This status confirms that he has a federation card until 30 June 2020. ”
If you dissect the statement, it is certain Zaragoza has not reached an agreement with the Red Devils. Mateo Mejia has actually attracted the attention of many talent guides. Can be mentioned from Atletico Madrid until Valencia is interested in being able to hijack it.
Not only are the two big Spanish La Liga clubs, also emerged from the realm of England and Italy like Arsenal, and Inter Milan are ready to negotiate with Mateo Mejia. For now, the age of Mateo Mejia is 16 years old.
Throughout his career as an academy player, Mateo Mejia has helped the Cadete Real Zaragoza team provide a performance for Zaragoza in several age group tournaments. His best achievement was to present the title at the Torneo Cesaraugusta XXXIII event held a while ago.
Statistics with the Cadete Zaragoza team are very remarkable by scoring 53 goals in 29 matches played in domestic competitions. On that basis, why many big clubs are so interested in hijacking Mateo Mejia out of Zaragoza in this 2019 summer transfer market.
Manchester United’s own interest is based on interest from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian man firmly urged the Red Devils to quickly complete the transfer of Mateo Mejia, who will be projected to play in the youth team first in hopes of rising to the first team of Manchester United in the future.
