Man United keep a close eye on 19-year-old Fortuna Liga winger

Man United are closely monitoring the progress of Slavia Prague forward Abdallah Sima, as they look to strengthen their attacking unit in the summer. Senegal international began his footballing journey in his homeland Senegal with Medina before moving to France, where he had a stint with Thonon Evian.

March last year saw the versatile forward make the jump to Czech Republic outfit Taborsko and just five months later he was snapped up by Slavia Prague. In his first campaign with the capital club, Abdallah has impressed leaps and bounds.

Indeed, Sima, who has primarily played on the right flank this term, has racked up a highly impressive tally of 19 goals and 6 assists across all tournaments. The 19-year-old winger played a key role in Slavia Prague’s UEL quarter-final run, which was halted by Arsenal earlier this month.

And, the Senegalese winger’s development in Prague has alerted Red Devils ahead of the summer window, as per the report. It is no secret that Man United have been on the lookout for a right-sided forward for quite some time now.

While the pursuit of Jadon Sancho has seemingly gone cold in recent weeks, the likes of Ousmane Dembele of Barcelona and Leeds United’s breakout star Raphinha continue to be linked with a move to Man United.

Sima, now, has emerged as the latest footballer that Red Devils have been credited with an interest. Given his age and lack of experience at the highest level in European football, Abdallah could very well be categorised under the same bracket as Man United’s additions for the right-wing slot in Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri.
